You are being judged - on the way you are, the way you move, and the way you think. People make their decisions very quickly. For example, are you trustworthy? They look at the way you are right away. Are you smart? Are you adventurous? Are you gay or straight? Do you have high status? Will you over perform?
All of this is happening in the matter of a few seconds when someone meets you. First impressions matter. By coming out and showing that you are who you are in a positive way, you will control the outcome the best way!
