Chapter 7: Charismatic first impression
Studies show, that the first impression is extremely important and people judge you on it much more than you may think. Studies also show that the first impression is correct in around 90% of cases! This means that if you see someone in a picture, the first impression you have about this person will most likely be the same as if you had known the person for a year.
That’s why it’s so important to make a fantastic first impression. How do you do it? First of all, follow this principle: people like people who are like them. And to be like another person, dress like the person. If you want to impress a hippy person, dress like a hippy person.
