Your Smile Is Your First Impression!

First Impression - Your Smile!According to a new survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, close to 50% of Americans believe that a smile is the most memorable feature after first meeting someone.  It is more important that the first thing they say.

Think about that.  Someone who has a pretty smile and uses it will make a better first impression than someone who does not smile but says something nice.  Why is that?  Another recent study found some interesting results.  Two different groups of people  were shown pictures of the same person, one smiling and one not smiling and asked to decribe the person in the photo.  The pictures of the people smiling were rated as more friendly, having more leadership skills, and being more attractive than the same person who did not smile.

Ask yourself this question.  Two people you do not know walk into a room.  One of them is smiling and one of them is not smiling.  Which one would you want to meet first?  Of course the one you judge to be more friendly and attractive.  That is human nature.

The next time you have a job interview or are in a social situation where you will meet new people make sure you smile!  Your first impression will be much better that if you do not smile.
