What is the first thing you notice about a person?

Is it their face, their hair, their size, their eyes, their smile, their sense of dress, or what?

I think I probably look at the overall picture first, followed by looking at their eyes.

First impressions DO count for me and so looking at them as a "whole" will give me an instant impression.

I realise yhou should not judge a book by it's cover, however this is just an initial thought/thing with me.

I then go on to find out what the person is like or speak to them, or not, depending on the situation.

Their posture. It gives me a sense of their mood or general attitude. Posture often tells me if someone is agitated, overbearing, easygoing, relaxed...
When meeting someone,I notice whether they approach me with eye contact and an outstretched hand to shake.I always notice their handshake as well. I do not relate well to a first meeting if the person is boisterous or arrogant.I like a calm and cheerful demeanor. Being an ex tradesperson often covered with paint,I am a great believer that 'clothes do NOT maketh the Man (or woman!!!)!!!
There isn't a specific thing I notice first. It depends on the person, and what stands out about them.
The first thing would be their appearance (obviously we haven't spoken yet!) then it would be things like do they look you in the eye when talking...do they listen to you as well as talk about themselves...do they have empathy in general....do you feel 'a connection'...I believe there is a chemistry, even with the same sex...can they laugh at themselves...better stop here!

Body Language.

It is a dead give away, and then I look at the face overall.
Hairstyle says a lot about a person - tight or messy etc, so I take that into account first, I think.

Do you find this gives you an accurate idea of the person?
I have naturally curly hair which at times has been untamable. I had people tell me they thought I must have been a drug user, because of my hair! A very unfair and inaccurate judgement of me in my opinion.

Apparently the first thing everyone notices about a person that they meet for the first time is the gender of the person.

LOL. That sounds about right.

I look at their smile (and their teeth). Weird I know.
Usually, the eyes!

My daughter has 'cornflower blue' (what I call 'Peter O'Toole' eyes!) eyes. There're some colour of eyes that are just mesmerising!

Remember some years' ago that award-winning NatGeo photo, 'the Girl with Green Eyes'?
Their Smile, always the smile.
How they dress is another, perhaps if they are "mutton dressed like lamb" or have no dress sense - wearing tight 3/4 length trousers and a smock top.

My first overall impression would be from body language.
For males probably hair first, then eyes and how they're dressed (I have a 'thing' for men with a full head of hair!). For women, it's probably what they're wearing and then their hair. Which all sounds rather superficial when you write it down!
