“Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain–and most fools do.” -Dale Carnegie

Give people the opportunity to make a second impression. Research shows that we form an impression about someone within the first seven seconds upon meeting. We decide whether we like the person or not. This impression is not always true. Certainly you have been wrong more than once about what you thought of someone. Our judgment can easily be clouded by hear-say and prejudices. As long as you don’t think your safety is in danger, allow people to make a second impression.
