First Impressions 2 Abstract To; briefly analyze the characteristics of two people I have met for the first time, and the first impressions I formed. A person I did not know and who I probably will not see again, and a person I have known for some time, and for whom I can remember my first impressions; briefly describe each person, my goal for meeting each when I did, and my impression of each, including a description of how each behaved; analyze the kinds of information and the processes that were important in forming your impression of each person; describe the schema, prototype, and exemplars that contributed to the forming of my impression in each case; apply elements of causal attribution theories and concepts to explain each person's behavior.
