Welcome to the latest edition of the Testing Peers podcast. This time, David and Chris are joined by Dermot and also brand new host Sanne. The peers are talking about first impressions and how reputations can sometimes proceed you.
Sanne starts the conversation off with a great question of “what do you friends know you best for?”, for any of you that know the peers, what do you think of when you think of them?
Once on to the main topic, the conversation starts with Sanne’s thoughts on first impressions when joining a project/team looking at reputation that proceeds you, whether that be from external opinion based on social media presence or internal good work. Sometimes the reputation from external factors can impact expectations from day one, so it can sometimes be key to ensure people aren’t making unrealistic assumptions.
What experience have you had with others first impression of you? And have you any stories of where you have got first impressions wrong of someone?
