You’ve probably heard of mirroring, subtly copying someone else’s mannerisms to win the person over. When you want to make a good impression—fast—try these.
If a person seems all business, don’t attempt to loosen him up with a joke or story. Be succinct.
If someone is personable, try discussing his interests. Often the items on display in his office space can be a clue.
If a person asks you a direct question, answer directly.
When you allow the other person to set the tone, and you mirror his style, your chances of making a favorable impression improve.
