According to science, the first seven seconds in which you meet somebody, is then you will make a first impression. So, whether it is for an event, a business development meeting, or any other professional setting, you have to act very quickly in order to make the proper first impression. Here are some important tips. Smile. Facial expressions are very important when it comes to making a good first impression. Smiling is at the start of this list for a good reason. Most of the people believe that a smile is the most memorable feature after meeting someone for the very first time. While smiling is important, you probably do not want to have a cheesy and inauthentic grin plastered across your face. Smile too widely and it is going to look like you are covering up nervousness. You might even come across as arrogant. So, smile in natural way. Not only does smiling make others feel more comfortable around you, but also decreases stress hormones that can negatively impact your health. the right handshake. The handshake is accepted internationally as a professional sign of politeness. A proper handshake can convey confidence. When you are meeting with people whom you trust and have known for years, ask them how they feel after shaking hands, and how your handshake feels in relation to others they have experienced. introductions. You want your first seven seconds with somebody to be productive. So, it is great to throw in a verbal introduction as you want meet with people. If you have a hard time remembering names names, the intro is a great place to reinforce the name of the person you just met. Speak clearly. Many people have wondering things to say but do not speak with any confidence. Unfortunately, that is a great way to wind up getting overlooked. You want to be able to portray yourself in a positive light and give whomever you are meeting a reason to listen to you. Make eye contact. Looking someone in the eye conveys that you are confident and interested in what they have to say. But, make sure that you do not overdo it. If you do not take breaks now and again, your eye contact could be viewed as staring. Use body language. One interesting thing about human psychology is that most of us mirror the body language of someone we admire. Think about how infectious a yawn is in a group of people. In fact, there is a neuron that affects the part the brain responsible for recognizing faces and reading facial expressions. This neuron causes that mirroring reaction. So when another person sees you smiling, the neuron fires and causes them to smile in response. Mirroring goes both ways. If you pick up on and reflect back the non-verbals cues, it sends a non-verbal message that you can actually feel what they are feeling. Research shows that people who experience the same emotions are likely to experience mutual trust, connection and understanding.
