Speaking

do you believe in first-impression?
I think most of the people will show their personality, the way of thinking in a talk within half an hour. You will find that while observing his body language, listening to how his talking. However, there are some people who are difficult to learn about in a short time, as they can hide themselves very smartly. You need time to find out their real intentions.

I believe in first impression. He was my first boss when I graduated and start my first career. I’m very afraid of my boss. The first day he met me, he give me some decks to read. He looks not very handsome, not the style I will like, I feel my heart beat. The feeling is a bit strange. He told me his first impression of me. He said it’s also very strange and same with me that it’s a very quick heartbeat. I don’t know whether he is cheating on me.

Reading

Body language plays a vital role in social interaction. A good understanding of this language helps a speaker to express his ideas clearly and accurately while a listener can perceive in the same way. Eye contact is the most obvious you communicate. When you are looking at the other person, you show interest. When you fail to make eye contact, you give impression that the other person is of no importance. Maintain eye contact about 60% of the time in order to look interested, but not aggressive. Facial expression is another form of non-verbal communication. A smile sends a positive message and is appropriate in all but a life and death situation. Smiling adds warmth and an aura of confidence. Others will be more receptive if you remember to check your expression.

Your mouth gives clues, too.Mouth movements, such as pursing your lips and twisting them to one side, can indicate that you are thinking about what you are hearing or that you are holding something back.
