Whether you’re looking to charm your love or butter your boss, present yourself best. Simple or made-up; here are a few tips for a lasting first impression:
- Watch that walk:
Your walk is noticed before you get a chance to say or see. For girls, wearing high heels is not a necessity if you look like a walking camel. For guys, make your walk as smart and casual as possible.
- The handshake:
As casual a way it may seem to greet somebody, a handshake can tell a lot about a person. The way one holds out his/her hand (palm side up, palm side down or perfectly straight, or the grasp, whether it’s tight or lose), can say a lot about the kind of person you are.
- Dress to impress:
You wouldn’t wear a “saree” or a “kurta” to a club, would you? Similarly, knowing to dress appropriately for a person or a place is very important. For example, Indian weddings are all about the bling, but you don’t have to look like a walking chandelier or Bappi Lahiri!
- Think before you speak:
Throwing big words at people expecting applause is not going to work. Keep it short and simple. Always talk in context; joking unnecessarily or talking a lot can easily put off a person.
- Look them in the eye:
“The eyes are the mirror of a soul” is not just a saying. Trying to avoid eye contact has been linked to low confidence and even lying. Make sufficient eye contact when you’re talking; overdoing it will make you look weird.
A smile can put anyone at ease. It gives positive vibes and people develop an instant liking to other people who smile at them. So, don’t forget to wear that perfect smile of yours!
