The figures behind “First Impressions”

The figures behind “First Impressions”

I found an interesting (albeit controversial!) article in The Times recently quoting the first female Chair of The Institute of Directors – Lady Judge (see photo). As it’s a paid article, I’m not able to share the whole thing with you, however, here’s a little snippet…

Lady Judge (69), Chairwoman of the Institute of Directors said at a recent meeting of the Wealth Management Association’s Women In Wealth Forum, that:

“Seventy per cent of first perceptions is based on how you look, 20 per cent is how you sound and only 10 per cent is based on what you say. When you walk into a room, you can’t make a second first impression and so you want to take charge of other people’s impressions. For both men and women it’s about defining yourself and not letting others define you.”
 
What kind of first impression do you think you make on people?
