35 Body Language ‘It was how you looked when you said it, not what you actually said.’ Studies reveal that we judge people within 5 seconds of meeting them, and that only 7% of the first impression we make is a result of what we say. The other 93% is made up of body language and posture (55%) and vocal aspects like tone and clarity (38%). It takes around 20 additional meetings with a person to change the first impression of them. 35
