First impressions matter. They matter A LOT. Every day you meet new people.

Instantly be assumed to be competent and on top of your game?
That would be awesome, right? If people judge you less then it will be easy right?
People don’t know what worth they deserve like who doesn’t like deserved attention right?
So, in this article you will get basic ways to look smarter than before!
1) Shut-up (Listen more, talk Less)
Listen more and talk less. This is the most important tip.
Listening is also a skill set, that many ignores. They important role in interviews. Don’t listen just to have a response or a knee-jerk reaction. Instead, listen to understand. By listening we mean that you listen and react to what other person has said and not waiting for other to stop and fire back.
2) Ask Simple but Insightful Questions
Asking questions doesn’t just mean that you don’t know something. It means that you want to find out what you don’t know as well. Asking genuine question is fine but asking more stupid question is not good. What must be noted is that the questions should be:
Relevant – ask only questions that are relevant in the topic.
Succinct – don’t ask a confusing question; short and to the point will get you a better answer
When you ask a question, it makes your conversation more comfortable.
Recently, I gave some company interview and in the end I just a basic question that about the interviewer experience not for the company as in an employee, so that gave interviewer a way to say more making it more genuine convo going now. This will surely help; I cleared those interviews. 😛
3) Wear Glasses
It’s a recognition thing. He is wearing glasses he must a nerd! Movies and tv series, shows how wearing glasses makes you look nerd. Remember how Peter Parker looked before becoming spider man!
4) Effectively Use Quotes
Use quotes that shows your knowledge. We’ve gotten away from taking the time out to read and launch an inquiry into a subject that interests us.
5) Get Enough Sleep
The benefits of getting sleep are widely known. People don’t follow a sleeping routine this can lead to bad health. Getting rest is paramount for a healthy lifestyle. It helps you:
- Recover from illness
- Reduce stress
- Curb inflammation
- Have a healthy weight and dozens of other health benefits
6) Accessorize smartly
Dress smartly that’s the most important thing. Just remember first impression is last impression. For parties, make sure you match your accessories. If you’ve invested in a smart watch, let it shine.
7) Take care of your skin
Having clear skin looks nice and healthy, half race is already won. Drink loads of water to make your skin glow. Do not forget your sunscreen and get tanned. Use face mask once or twice a week. A paste of besan, curd, honey and lemon will make your skin shine and remove tanning. You can use it on your arms and legs as well.
Shoes are really important. Just think wearing flip flop for going to interviewer. Or don’t go to over on shoes. Wear casual shoes for parties and formal shoes for interviews. Shoes are the first thing people judge you by so choose accordingly.

9) Smell Pleasant
If you stink, no one will approach you. No one will even come near to you. Don’t believe me just try once.
10) Wear a Bit of Red
Red makes you have attention. It’s a bold statement that communicates power and authority. This is a universal notion. See how red colours controls you. Traffic lights red makes you stop the colour literally controls you.
11) Make sure your clothes are ironed
Crumbled clothes equal to lethargic people. Everyone should ensure that no matter what the occasion, their clothes should be well ironed and clean. Do not go out with a huge stain in the middle of your nice shirt, or a tear in your stockings. That’s a big no no.
12) Be Updated with Latest technology
Read news. Be up to date. Learn a new technology to improve in your career.
13) Dress according to your body type
There are clothes designed to flatter every type of body, the only thing is that we don’t know how to choose them. If you are short, long stripes with heels are your safest bet. Avoid long dresses and palazzo pants. The trick is to find clothes that flatter your particular body type. Once you do so, you will start looking better when you dress up.
