  • First Impression Essay

    It is hard to give an exact answer as for the nature of the first impression: whether it is deceptive, and maybe vice versa - the most correct. Here, it all depends on the person, on the nature and degree of the development of intuition. Perhaps I will take myself to the last, and I would say that the first impression is often deceiving. For some reason, the same first two days of a student 's life, for example, take place, as in a fog, when it still seems that you normally come to school, but…
