First impressions tells a lot about people.

A significant number of people distrust their first impressions of people. Although I agree that first impressions are sometimes misleading, I firmly believe that first impressions are usually correct because people’s appearances and speech inevitably reveal their perspectives and attitudes to life. On top of that, people’s clothes reveal what images they want to present to the world.

To begin with, I strongly believe that people’s appearances such as facial expressions, body motions, and tone of voices, can accurately portray theirpersonalities and attitudes toward life. This is because people’s habitual facial and body expressions, which are the outward expressions of their minds, accurately reflect their emotional reactions and responses to the outer world. For example, experienced interviewers can evaluate and judge characteristics of a candidate during the first few minutes of an interview. According to their accounts, an optimistic person has brighter facial expressions, a high tone of voice, and more active hand motions. In contrast, a pessimistic person with low self-esteem has more solemn facial expressions, a quiet voice, and minimum body motions. This example demonstrates that people’s appearances can accurately disclose a lot about people.

In addition, people’s clothes reveal what messages they want to project to the world. This is largely because what people wear is a self-expressive kind of uniform to the world. To illustrate, those who wear dirty, torn, and ill-fitting clothes convey the message to the world that they are messy, disorganized, and do not care about their appearances. In contrast, people wearing neat, well-organized, stylish clothes are most probably want to present images to the outside world that they are interested in how they look and want to make good impressions.

In conclusion, initial impressions are usually accurate because their appearances and speech reveal their characteristics and attitudes to the world. In addition, people’s clothes show what images they want to convey to the world. For these reasons, I strongly believe that first impressions are usually correct and explain a lot about people’s personalities and attitudes.
