Better Smile, Better Dates
Here is an excerpt from an interesting article on body language, smile, and how it could be translated to better dates. You could apply same settings to sales presentation or any other encounter.
When you meet someone for the first time, it takes that person 3 to 7 seconds to make her judgement about you. I do it. You do it. We all do it… Unconsciously.
Basically, we decide how comfortable we are with that person. Remember, we are wired for self-preservation.
In a nutshell…
- perception of a possible pain/danger from that person = not very comfortable
- perception of safety = comfortable.
Once that first assessment is made we adapt our feelings, posture, language, and tone. These first few seconds alone can make or break a relationship whether when influencing someone in a sales or presentation situation, or when flirting with a man or a woman…
And the most crucial body language signal to influence our first impression is the smile. This is also the most recognised signal in every country and every culture.
Smiling indicates happiness… and a friendly attitude… Smiling indicates we want to communicate with someone. It shows interest. But there is much more to it…
Smiling is a learned phenomenon. Young babies don’t smile naturally. They mimic the expressions of those looking at them… But by the time we reach adulthood, it has become a signal critical to making a good first impression.
Smiling also has an actual impact on your physiology…
