The First Things I Notice
I have noticed a change in myself over the past few years, the first thing I notice about people has changed. In the past the first thing I would notice would be a person's face, or eyes, or hands. Now it is their shoes and how their trousers fit (or don't.) I notice clothes and the bags that people are carrying. Like it or not, research shows that we judge people within seconds or first seeing them, often not on who they are, but on our first impression. We develop an opinion of liking or not liking, trusting or not trusting, wanting to talk with or wanting to ignore a person within the blink of an eye.
Want to make a good impression on me, wear interesting shoes and trousers that fit well. I'll notice those things long before I see your face, or hair.
What is the first thing you notice about people?

eyes, smile, clothes (in that order).ReplyDelete
I have asked myself this for years and never come up with a clear answer. The first thing becomes a list of a dozen things. Eyes, smile, hair, butt, legs, chest, height, clothes, and more... and in no particular order.ReplyDelete
The first thing I notice is their demeanor. And probably the way they dress.ReplyDelete
I don't think I have a "first thing" for everybody. I do notice the height of anyone taller or shorter than my five-six. I do love eyes, but that's not necessarily the first thing I notice on everyone. Boy, this question is harder than it seems!ReplyDelete
This will sound new-age but I what I notice first is their energy. I can sense almost immediately their state of being.ReplyDelete
