What Is Your Selfie Saying About You?
In this HYPER visual day and age of everyone posting everything and everyone having an opinion of everything being posted, if the HR manager of the company of your dreams, or the mom of your Prince of Wales, or the hottie you plan on meeting on Tinder, had only a pic to get an idea of who you are, what would your selfie say about you? As the weirdo is the movie SAW says, "Let's play a game."
Okay, pretend you like ANY type of guy - this exercise isn't about the type of guy you like, more about your perception of a guy based on his appearance. We all know who Brad Pitt is (OMFG do we ever) but if you DIDN'T know who he was and you only saw the picture of him on the left, what would your first thoughts be about him BASED JUST ON HIS APPEARANCE? He's a hippie. He's a surfer? He's a logger. He smells like Patchouli. His hair looks like it smells greasy. He's laid back. He's easy going. He smokes weed. He carves stuff out of wood. He just might skateboard (or, he used to when he was younger). He has a cool, it-guy, hipster vibe. But I'll bet his beard smells and he rock climbs. If you only saw the picture of him on the right, what would your first thoughts be about him BASED ON JUST HIS APPEARANCE? He's rich. He's confident. He owns his own company or something. He probably drives a cool car and smells delicious (him, not the car). He probably works out all the time. He probably drinks light beer and watches what he eats. His girlfriend or wife is probably perfect. He's detail oriented (look at that fade and that pompadour - not a hair out of place). He looks powerful and persuasive.
A lot of what formed my fake opinions in these pictures is the appearance of Brad's hair and facial hair. I obviously can't smell him through the computer, nor can I talk to him. My fake opinions are based purely on a brief visual assessment, the same type of assessment that happens every time someone sees us in person or online. What is your online and in person look saying about you? Feel free to share your experiences with us regarding people making snap judgements based on appearance.
