Thin Slicing and Why It’s Important To Your Professional Image
Thin slicing is a psychological phenomenon which was first coined by Nalini Ambady and Robert Rosenthal in 1992.
Their research demonstrated how only after a narrow period of time (less than 5 mins) participants were able to accurately and in some cases more accurately judge a person attitudes or emotions than when left with them for longer periods of time.
Most judgments were formed from body language such as posture, orientation, proximity, movements, eye contact, smiling, and gestures, etc as well as the reaction of anyone they were engaging with.
We’ve all heard that first impressions are powerful, lasting and hard to change and with this study, we have yet more proof of its truth.
