First Impressions: When Appearance Matters
Friday, February 14, 2013, 8:45-9:30am, Room 16B

Whether we like it or not, looks really do matter, sometimes even more than behavior or fact. A series of studies shows how first impressions not only shape our interactions with others but also influence how our relationships develop over time. First impressions predict everything from a person's likeability to their romantic potential and can even override other conflicting information provided to us.
