Appearance deals with every aspect of how we perceive an individual. In an instant, we form opinions about a person based on that individual's appearance, smell, cleanliness, emails, and mannerisms. Those brief seconds define how we treat others or are treated by others. Likewise, our appearance is a direct reflection of the environment in which we were raised. Through our actions and appearance, others may form a lasting, and sometimes detrimental, impression of us that we may never overcome.
