Other than "appearance" is important. Tips for improving your first impression and creating smooth relationships
Many of you may have heard that "first impressions" are important in communication.
Another theory is that "the first impression is determined by the first 3 seconds."
It may be no exaggeration to say that the first impression of work, romance, and relationships affects subsequent relationships.
This time, I would like to introduce such a first impression.
Does the appearance really determine the first impression?
I often hear that "the first impression is determined by the appearance." But does "appearance" really determine the first impression?
According to Melavian's research on first impressions, people are mainly influenced by "language, hearing, and vision."
This effect is said to have the highest influence in the order of "visual", "hearing", and "language", and it is also called the "rule of 7-38-55" by taking each percentage.
In other words, the first impression changes considerably not only by the appearance but also by the tone of the speaker's voice and the words selected.
Grab your heart with a natural smile and an inflectional way of speaking
No matter how well dressed you are, if you are absorbed in speaking and have no expression, or if the words you say are stick reading, it may give a bad impression rather than being memorable to the other person.
Also, even if you smile and say something empty, your first impression will be worse.
It is important to organize what you want to convey and to keep in mind the facial expressions and gestures that follow it.
Things to keep in mind when responding to telephone calls with zero visual information
Telephone communication is biased towards hearing information due to lack of credentials. If the first voice is dark or in a bad mood, the impression given to the other party will naturally be bad.
Also, since you can rely on your qualifications face-to-face, even if you don't give a negative impression, it's difficult to recover because you can't see your facial expression when you respond by phone.
Therefore, it is advisable to keep a bright voice in the first voice and be aware of a more polite way of speaking.
Especially in the business scene, this telephone response will greatly affect future relationships.
It is important to be aware of what kind of impression the other person will have because it is a relationship that will continue in the future.
The foundation of good relationships is the accumulation of "natural"
It is also said that if the first impression is bad, it will take a huge amount of time and effort to overturn it.
It's just an expressionless, stick-reading that ruins the first step in an important relationship.
A smile, an intonational way of speaking, and the imagination of what the other person will look like can make a big difference in your impression.
The content introduced this time is quite natural. However, we tend to neglect such "natural things" for some reason.
It may be important to keep a smile on your face, not just for the other person but for yourself.
