View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/should-you-trust-your-first-impression-peter-mende-siedlecki You can't help it; sometimes, you just get a bad feeling about someone that's hard to shake. So, what's happening in your brain when you make that critical (and often lasting) first judgment? Peter Mende-Siedlecki shares the social psychology of first impressions -- and why they may indicate that, deep down, people are basically good. Lesson by Peter Mende-Siedlecki, animation by TOGETHER.

Ssss Aaaa: Well, from my experience, if someone is negative from the beginning, it's doomed to fail. ~
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. - Maya Angelou.

Elsy Ramirez: My friend gets mad at me for being too nice and "peaceful" towards everyone. I tell her I try it see the good in people ,as a result a lot of my friends hate each other.

Raya Burdes: If the guy said sorry about it it would be very different than if he just completely didnt bring it up.

Kami Sou: well,last time i judged a person ,recently knew, was a very positive judgement ,but then that person changed their behaviours and their thoughts about me completely ! so i leaned on changing my impression bcz i didn't expect that behaviour from this specific person though i know everybody can do it !!😕😕

disha chakraborty: The last part got over my head 😬 the thing is after watching the Dichotomy Paradox and the infinity hotel this one just flew over

Fatema Mustafa: This is only applicable for Canadians

El extraterrestre: Pero estas soluciones se basan sólo en _prejuicios_. Las primeras impresiones no pueden de ningún modo considerarse completas, por más acertadas que parezcan. Yo diría que antes bien ocurre lo contrario: nos equivocamos demasiado respecto al origen de nuestras impresiones, primeras o segundas y terceras, pues el error está en la valoración misma del comportamiento "positivo" o "negativo", "me gusta" contra "no me gusta". El _prejuicio_, es siempre apresurado, está más próximo a tales "impresiones" planteadas aquí. El _juicio_, en cambio, toma tiempo, a veces mucho tiempo (si es que tal cosa se practica), y hace uso de otras facultades cognitivas, como la imaginación, que puede extender las impresiones más allá del comportamiento de las personas.

Lame Gamer: Then there is me: No thanks! I love rain!

Sean Reilly: My brain who is this guy

Creative Writer: silent tear Can I live in this place where someone actually pays attention to another person?

Chris Nilsson: I make bad first impressions, so NO! LOL.

Khadija Al basri: Lol, the way he acted in the football game is ordinary and no, people don’t usually lend you an umbrella. Aaaand people aren’t usually good lol

M B Chand: Actually .. I don't believe in first impression ...

Hall Pie: I've been fooled by first impressions too many times. People have many sides so I think it's safer to observe them in many situations before making my own opinions about their characters.

Russell Olsen: One person in my grade I use to think he was someone to avoid, now he is okay.

El Jean: Behavior changes through times i blame it on hormones.

Erick Rosa: Its true when i do something wrong it becomes the worst thing ever, im usually calm polite and respectful so if i deviate people tend to be shocked

piedwagtailrameau: So true... I would never forgive or forget bad behaviour - avoid like the plague

Sharukh Saifi: But my brain work in different way no matter how much time a person done bad to me all he have to do is one good deed to erase all of his bad deeds from my mind. It's a weakness that I have people use it in wrong way. That's why I am forcing my mind to remember a person's bad deeds even after some good one. So I'll not get cheated again.

marykacyy: This entire video basically explained how the media gets our attention with there ridiculous lies they speak of, of famous people
