A series of experiments by Princeton University psychologists, revealed that all it takes is a tenth of a second to form an impression of a stranger from their face, and that longer exposures don’t significantly alter those impressions (although they might boost your confidence in your judgments).
WOW!!! A 10th of a second. It takes longer to snap your fingers than to make a snap judgement of someone? So what does this mean for us? Do we have to go around trying to be the most perfect version of ourselves every day? Wearing a fully made up face, expensive clothes and super designer high heels? Some might say yes, but I am here to tell you no, No you don’t need to do all of that.
Too much time and money is being spent on trying to impress other people instead of being comfortable with who we are. When we do things to impress other people, it starts to dig a hole inside of ourselves. It’s better that we honour who are true selves are. That’s how we keep ourselves whole.
