People tend to judge the level of your intelligence within 10 minutes by the following criteria (rightly or wrongly):
1. The steadiness of your gaze;
2. The clench or set of your jaw;
3. Your posture;
4. Whether you hesitate, or stammer when you speak;
5. Your ability to make brief references to important current events within the first few phrases you utter – as if you were informed and had reason to be concerned about “BIG” issues.
People make snap decisions which determine whether or not they will engage with you. Time is short. First impressions are critical.
