Re: How Important Are Looks?

Dr. Pao, being that you are the famous international Hmong scholar of
some caliber, these are great observations. Now, will you tell
everyone that NONE of this was in fact your observation, but those of
Michelle T. Sterling, who is the founder of Global Image Group and
expert on image, impression and impact?!?

FIRST IMPRESSION... You have only 3 sec to make it or loose it!!!!

Within the first three seconds of a new encounter, you are evaluated…
even if it is just a glance.

People appraise your visual and behavioral appearance from head to
toe. They observe your demeanor, mannerisms, and body language and
even assess your grooming and accessories – watch, handbag, briefcase.
Within only three seconds, you make an indelible impression. You may
intrigue some and disenchant others.

This first impression process occurs in every new situation. Within
the first few seconds, people pass judgment on you – looking for
common surface clues. Once the first impression is made, it is
virtually irreversible.

The process works like this:

    * If you appear to be of comparable business or social level, you
are considered suitable for further interaction.
    * If you appear to be of higher business or social status, you are
admired and cultivated as a valuable contact.
    * If you appear to be of lower business or social standing, you
are tolerated but kept at arm's length.
    * If you are in an interview situation, you can either appear to
match the corporate culture or not, ultimately affecting the outcome.

It is human nature to constantly make these appraisals, in business
and social environments. You may hardly have said a word, however once
this three-second evaluation is over, the content of your speech will
not change it. When you make the best possible first impression, you
have your audience in the palm of your hand. When you make a poor
first impression, you lose your audience’s attention, no matter how
hard you scramble to recover it.
