It might be quite a number of times or sometimes it happens that one may get disappointed due to being perceived differently by the people around him or her. There might be some situations in which a person feels that the impression about him or her is not so as it should be. One may feel that the actions and behavior of the people is different from what he or she has expected to be. For the above reasons, impression is a factor that plays an important role in all the aspects of everyday life of individuals. It is thereforeimportant to consider how to manage our impression effectively, so that the desired results may be attained.
Managing impression appropriately not only aids one in leaving a lasting impression on others, but it also helps in attaining desired results successfully. Impression management has considerable implications in all the aspects of life in which you have a need to give others your overall impression as good. It doesn’t just help to give an impression, but it leads to develop your personality accordingly.
When considering as to how the impression management leads to develop the personality, it is important to take the self-concept in to consideration which is related to self-esteem as well. If a person thinks that he is not being understood in a way it should be, he or she begins to think that something better should be done in order to manage the impression in an accurate manner. This could lead a person to self-development in addition to formulating particular strategies to create a good impression atothers. It must be borne in mind that if one is willing to give good impression on others, one should not forget the importance of maintaining a good personality at all times which is based on such behavior which is considered as correct and acceptable in the society at large.
Regardless of job positions, every person needs to know and understand how he or she can create a good impression on others by maintaining such behavior which is considered to be acceptable by making the efforts or controlling or influencing the perceptions of other people. At this point, it is appropriate to mention that this could lead a person to create different impression from what it is in reality. For example, a friend may share only good things about his personality with another friend in order to impress him. Though the desired result may be attained, but it is not a long lasting impression, as the truth may become apparent at some later point of time. It is therefore, important to give the correct impression and act accordingly while building the personality in such a manner that lets others form a good and everlasting impression.
