2017 Maps of Meaning 4: Marionettes and Individuals (Part 3)
A Set of Conclusions People Jump to When They See You for the First Time
Not only do people evaluate your appearance but also the way you move. Researchers at Durham University conducted the following experiment — the students watched videos where the way a person walked was the only thing that could be seen and they were asked to identify personal traits.
According to the participants, an energetic and firm manner of walking denotes extroversion, propensity to want to adventure, and purposefulness. These people always get what they want but sometimes they might seem cold and inaccessible. So, if you usually walk at a fast pace, it’s better to slow a little down and adjust to the pace of the person you are with.
People with a slower and difficult manner of walking that keep slouching all the time are perceived as reserved, passive, and shy. Those who have a jerky manner of walking show their nervousness. So,if you want to impress someone, keep your shoulders broad, and walk straight and confidently.
Surprisingly, conclusions people make within the first seconds of their meeting can be wrong. A person who walks at a slow pace doesn’t necessarily love traveling less than the one with a quick walking pace. Nevertheless,keep in mind those signals that your body and appearance subconsciously send to your partner when getting ready for an important meeting.
