Human behavior is influenced by culture, attitudes, emotions, values, ethics, authority, rapport, hypnosis, persuasion, coercion, and genetics (Wikipedia, 2011). It falls within a range with some behavior being common, unusual, acceptable, and some outside acceptable limits (Wikipedia, 2011).
First impressions are created by a composite of signals given off by a new experience (Flora, 2004). The judgment of these impressions depends on the observer and the person being observed (Flora, 2004). When you meet someone for the first time it takes about three seconds to be evaluated by the observer (Mind Tools, 1996-2011,). During this time the person forms an opinion about you based on your appearance, your body language, your demeanor, and how you dress (Mind Tools, 2996-2011,).

On his way back to the office he stops and chats with a friend, a girl he had been introduced too walks with her for a while and returns to the store ().
Introverts have an energy that is inwards towards concepts and ideas (Changing Minds, 2002-2011). They are often overwhelmed by stimulation (Changing Minds, 2002-2011). They focus more on their inner worlds because they suffer from sensory overload if too much time is spent outside and if they focus too much on other people (Changing Minds, 2002-2011).
