Национальный художественный музей Украины
Первый музей, который я посетил - Национальный художественный музей Украины. Он находиться практически в центре, где я часто бываю и люблю прогуливаться. Если честно, я ни разу в жизни не замечал здание музея. Как-то мой взгляд не привлекало столь мощное и темное здание. Прекрасные каменные львы по обе стороны входа.
Купив билет и пройдя через охрану, я решил начать с первого этажа, где проходила выставка «Герои. Попытка инвентаризации». Выставка началась с картин трудящихся, крестьян и их жизни, и быта в момент прихода советов к власти. Были представлены пару картин на тему строительства Днепрогэс.
Следующий зал продолжил эту тематику множеством картин с изображением Ленина, что меня порадовало. Я не ожидал, что увижу, что-то связанное с советской тематикой, учитывая события последних лет. Просто любая революция - это потрясения, и меня всегда восхищали люди, которые смогли осуществить свою революцию. Да, может быть он мерзавец, да, многие погибли во время осуществления революции, и во время последующего режима, но он сделал переворот, а глупому человеку такое не под силу. Многие картины о Ленине конечно были написаны для того, чтобы идеализировать его образ для советского человека. Картины Василия Кхитова «Ленин на третьем съезде», Анатолия Наседкина «В дни октября» и многих других прекрасно справились с этой функцией. Ведь на картинах Ленин был изображен всегда близко к народу, трудящийся с ним (народом) и думающий о народе.
Также в зале были другие картины периода соцреализма. И так как я вырос на территории Донецкой области, для меня было решено не обратить внимание на картину Металлурги Донбасса, написанную Михаилом Бельским. На ней были изображены обычные рабочие, но как полагается соцреализму, они были героями труда. И мне представлялось, что эти рабочие ребята смотрят уже на результаты своего труда, быть может, я…...

...FIRST IMPRESSIONS AND THEIR POWER, How first impressions strike us and their power to change actions Jacob XXXXXX CSU-Global ABSTRACT ------------------------------------------------- This paper will look at first impressions, how they strike us, the powerful ways in which they change our behavior and affect our decisions. How first impressions strike us and their power to change actions First impressions strike us in many different ways. They are often a powerful inhibitor which change the ways in which we would interact with others around us. Often times they are not indicative of the person we are meeting, yet they can permanently alter the ways in which we view others and the ways in which we interact with others. They are however not always permanent impressions. Many times a first impression can be less than desirable for many reasons. Such reasons can range from a person feeling under the weather, a person having unrelated stressors affecting their behavior to an unplanned and inconvenient meeting of two people. When a first impression is less than desirable for the meete, the meetor can tend to make certain assumptions about the meete. These assumptions can range from believing that the meete is less than capable at a particular task/job to believing that the meete is perhaps an undereducated and unmotivated person. However, the same can be said in reciprocal. Take for example a person who has nothing more than a high school diploma and a slightly......

First Impression

...The Impact of a First Impression It has commonly been stated that one is never given second chance to make a great first impression. Everyday we have numerous interactions, where opportunities come and go in an instant, like sliding doors opening and closing. Ideally, we want to seize these moments in a favorable way. It is of great importance to understand how our human behaviors effect the first impressions we give others. Importance of First Impressions By definition an impression is, “a characteristic, trait, or feature resulting from some influence” (Merriam-Webster Incorporated, 2013). During the brief moments a first impression is made, someone else has determined their initial opinions of you based a number of verbal and nonverbal factors. Preparing for your first impression and possibly making minor adjustments can help you to obtain a desired outcome. First impressions play a major role in both personal and professional interactions. In a business setting, a good first impression could result in being hired for a job or obtaining a large account. Whereas, in a social setting, a good first impression might impact whether someone of interest asks you out on a date or talks to you in a bar. The Brain’s Role in a First Impression Macfarlane (2008) stated that the human brain function is not only responsible for logic and creativity, but also where our instincts are developed. First impressions are determined as being favorable or not based......

First Impressions

...First Impressions First impressions are made every day in our social, business, and educational world. They are our first judgment and opinion of someone’s character. First impressions can be made in person, or from a distance through communication with someone we have not yet met in person. First impressions can even be made indirectly by people who observe us and our interactions with others. Ultimately, upon meeting someone new, “we walk away from them with a first impression that is like a Polaroid picture – a head-to-toe image that develops instantly and never entirely fades” (Flora, 2004). First impressions are formed rather quickly. “Psychologists, writers and seminar leaders caution that we only have from seven to seventeen seconds of interacting with strangers before they form an opinion of us” (Lampton, n.d.). This means that we have a very limited amount of time to either make a good or bad first impression. There are a number of factors that can influence ones first impression of another individual. Physical characteristics, such as style of dress, hygiene, facial expressions, and mannerisms can all play a role in forming an opinion of a person. Non-physical characteristics such as attitude, perceived level of friendliness, general demeanor, punctuality and preparedness can also help in forming opinions of others. Additionally, communication style, tone of voice, and level of confidence also aid in helping to form an opinion of another. ...

...First Impressions Axia College of University of Phoenix XCOM 200 Julie Harris November 3, 2013 First Impressions Summary My immediate responses to the slides were primarily positive, with the exception of slides six and eleven. Some of those immediate responses were because of familiarity with issues or occurrences, or similar experiences. For some my initial response was on target. The positive images were things that made me smile, I recognized, or the assumptions I made were accurate. The negative responses were to slides that made me uncomfortable or sad as soon as I saw them. For example, the black and white photo I immediately thought of Martin Luther King, especially because of all the clergy representation, and I instantly put it all together. I was happy to see I was correct. On the negative side, pictures that I first saw which made me smile, such as the children who looked to be celebrating and playing, felt like a big letdown, when I read the information and found they were in reality, demonstrating, and I was sad about that. My perception changed on a few when I read the information, some......

Impression Management

...agencies are constantly trying to out-do each other for ratings on trending topics. The pressure to remain relevant is high and it’s no wonder it trickles down to our personal and professional lives. Making the right impression on people around us has never been more important than now. A popular example of the worst impression management mistake is the case of Justine Sacco, a former PR executive whose irreverent use of social media ruined her professional image in a matter of seconds. (Brian Stelter, CNN). What I find disappointing about Sacco is a consistent pattern of racial and offensive tweets that portray her as a disturbed personality. Not only did she reveal her lack of knowledge about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa, she prompted bigger debate on the stigmatization haunting the continent and making it harder to fight the disease. As a Public Relations expert from South Africa, it was rather ironic that Justine Sacco held such opinions. However, social media can be addictive if we let it get out of control. Despite the fact that Justine Sacco’s account was personal, it’s important to note that she was the face and voice of the organization she worked for. Her job was to decide how the company communicates its message to the world and she violated her authority. My perception of her after the incident is that of a person lacking discipline and one who does not value the ability behind her position. She had the platform to put a positive message out there and she......

Impression Management least one example of the worst impression management mistake that you have seen made by another. Discuss how the mistake affected your perception of the person. The worst impression management mistake that I have seen was by a manager at my last job (bookstore). I worked for the company for almost 5 years and watched the way my manager played favorites and then denied it every time. It was on a daily occasion when I went into work that I would watch as my manager stood around with several of the male employees and one female employee talking sports. When I first started working there the female employee was a “lead” who delegated tasks to the associates and she was similar to my manager in the sense that they would have ‘favorites’ and would stand around talking and not being productive but as soon as they started walking around and saw two co-workers talking those employees would be yelled at and told to ‘get back to work’. I lost respect for the manager and lead because they created a halo effect atmosphere in the workplace; if any employee didn’t want to work hard all they had to do was talk sports, which was the attribute the manager and lead used to develop an overall impression of a person (Uhl-Bien, p. 58). This resulted in tasks not getting done is a timely manner, the floor looking messy and unorganized and several disciplinary meetings telling the staff to work harder and deny favoritism. What did you learn from the impression management mistake that you......

...First Impressions Tyler Gustafson ORG 300 Applying Leadership Principles Colorado State University – Global Campus Dr. Barbara-Leigh Tonelli March 19, 2014   First Impressions First impressions play a big role in determining the dynamic of a conversation or meeting. It is important for a person to be perceived as they have intended. Many people are quick to judge others just on their appearance alone, but ultimately the words and gestures people use in that first meeting are often what solidify your full impression of an individual. How you dress and carry yourself is big when it comes to first impressions. Someone in a suit and tie will come across as accomplished and educated. A person in baggy sweats or holy jeans may come across as a thug or someone of lower class. These are merely stereotypes and unfortunately this is how we often characterize a person at first. How someone dresses, though, is not necessarily who they are as a person. The man in a suit may have to wear that for work or just came from a wedding or funeral where as the man in baggy sweats may just be having a bad day or may be in desperate need of doing some laundry. What we wear may be that first indicator of how someone may perceive us, but it’s not the only aspect people use in determining someone as a whole on that first meeting. A persons gestures, posture, and tone of voice finalize your first impression. Relationships, whether professional, intimate, or casual, are built on......

My First Impression of Ethics and Morals

...This was just my first impression of the subject. What is ethics? How do ethics affect me personally? Ethics are rules set by society. To be a part of society and to be treated as an equal member of society, I would have to abide by those rules. If ethics dictate that I would have to kneel down to my elders every time I cross path with them, then I would have to kneel down as they walk cross my path. For those who do not follow ethics of that society, society may cast those people down consequently. Having grown up in a Christian family with great devotion and being instilled with Christian morals, there are times that my morals conflict with the ethics set by society and other times when ethics and morals agree with each other. Morals, in my opinion, are the principles that have been instilled in me by my parents and by my teachers and friends. One of those principles is “thou shall not kill.” Morally, I believe that as a human being, I do not have the right or power to kill someone or something because that is exclusively set for “God” to decide. I also know that if someone tries to harm my family or myself in any way, I have the right to defend myself, whether I defend with a bat, club, or even a gun. If I shoot someone to cripple the person, I had done so to defend myself and/or my family from harm. Morally, this would tear at my soul because I had to do something “God” gave that person since birth, but ethically, I had done the right thing for my family, my......

First Impressions

...2012 First Impressions Everyone has been on or has known someone who has been on that first date where the advice is given about making a good first impression. First impressions are important especially in cases of job interviews, meeting family members of significant others, and romantic settings where you meet that special person for the first time. Sadly enough for most females, they base their romantic interactions on these first impressions which usual cause heartache. Women are usually more emotional invested in a relationship or romantic encounter than guys are. Therefore, guys whom are “players” develop their “game” around this to provide more of an assurance of them getting laid. It is compelling to make that first impression when meeting someone new. For players, they strive to create that image of “the good guy”. Upon that first meeting, impression formation is developed from the physical attributes and features as well as the beginning actions. Individuals are judged by that first impression on what part of society they belong to. When evaluating guys, the social groups that are examined are; the good guy, the dog/player, the needy/too attached, and the emotionally unavailable to name a few. The stereotypes of these groups comes into play therefore, impression management is part of the play book for players. The “ideal guy”, the good guy most females want and talk to their friends about, must be projected to leave that lasting good impression. ......

...Maxim Borodaev My impressions about USA. Since January, when I came to USA, I`m trying to understand this country. This country not really difficult to discover, but I found a lot of interesting things and interesting people to discover. For whole 6 mouths here I`m trying to understand, how I suppose to live here. This is what about will be this journal or rather about my impressions. I think that for you it will be interesting. I mean “How I see this country”. First part of this journal will be about first time in USA. Of course first time for me was the most difficult. I missed, and still miss some people from my past life. I had a feeling like sheep in the circle of wolves. I came without anybody from my relatives, and without any help, and I supposed to survive here and socialize. I was always in my mind, I was closed to people. It was first problem. Second problem was language. Nobody understood me and didn`t want to understand. I wanted to go home. But it wasn`t about my relatives. I wanted to stay home, I mean my country. But with time I changed my mind and understood that right now I`m in different life and different country, and I have to live here for whole time I am in the university. After some time I started to communicate with people. Almost they were international students. Almost from Saudi Arabia. I met a lot of people, but they weren`t this people who I wanted to communicate. They were good with me, but I felt that they are not my people. We had......

Impressions of the Chair

...There are various forms of communication. Of course, verbal communication is used without hesitation, but not often do people think of the various forms of non-verbal communication that is portrayed. Non-verbal communication is just as important as the verbal communication in any setting. In the reading “A Management Style that Made an Impression” (Hirsch, 2011, p. 71), the CEO, has the visitors’ chair bolted down. It has the writer puzzled, because he could not believe that the chair was bolted down. The chair being bolted down shows a level of control. The CEO had the chair bolted down, because it shows where his comfort level is with visitors. The visitor would not be able to enter his personal comfort zone. An interviewee can perceive this non-verbal gesture as intimidation. The individual would know there is control within the organization, and that the CEO values his personal zone. It also provides a safe distance to handle business within the office. The reason is cited within the text, “The man wanted nobody invading his space. He sat protected, barricaded behind his oversized desk” (Hirsch, 2011, p. 71). The desk is a barrier between the manager and the visitor. Communication alone is difficult, but when speaking with a manager that stays behind the desk, and creates another barrier, such as bolting down a chair, could easily make one uncomfortable. Also, managers who stay behind their desk indicate a symbol of power and exert the role of the individual. Desks......

My Impression in Living in the City

...My Impression in Living in the City Living in the city means to have easier access to any resources we may need, like having nearby marketplace, hospital, mall, and school however the common perception about cities is that they were dangerous because it is where criminals usually attack for there are greater mass of people that causes pollution due to smoke from vehicles. Although, cities are where you also find bigger and brighter opportunities for you to live a better life because of advance technologies and system of education. I have lived in this city all my life. It is where I was born, grew up, and first learned how to write and count and develop into a matured young woman. This city has always been a big part of me because it witnessed all my special moments, sweet smiles, hardships and struggles that caused my eyes to cry in tears. Although, an Ideal home for us is very hard and tricky to find because there are factors to consider before we can decide on which home to invest in that lead us to keep moving from house to house so I can consider myself as NPA or No Permanent Address in this city. Since we moved out from my grandparents’ house and got separated from living with my relatives we got to experience to move from house to house and due to this I got to transfer to different schools that lead me to making more new friends. Despite of all this, I have been blessed. I have been lucky enough to experience many different walks of life. I know that if I......

First Impressions

...Perception is the process of becoming aware of objects and events from the senses. Perception can have an impact on how we experience events or people. First impressions are the initial feelings that we have towards a person when we originally meet them. This impression can affect any future experiences with the same person, because we attach to those initial feelings from the first few hours of meeting them. About a year ago one of my close friends started dating a younger man that was from a well-known local family that was notorious for their kindness. The first time I meet him, he seemed like a wonderful person. He acted chivalrous, and politely complimented all of the women there. He made delightful conversation and acted genuinely interested of what each one of us had to say. He would send my friend flowers on a whim, and surprise her at work with food for lunch. My friend could sometimes act like a prima donna, and her boyfriend wouldn’t get mad at her at all. My friend’s boyfriend seemed like he was a character pulled right out of a movie. I thought he was perfect for her for quite a few months. There were a few times when he would be angry at her for talking to other men. I thought that it was only human to get a little jealous, especially if he did not know they were her friends from school. During another incident, I was spending time with the two of them and she said something he did not care for and he was extremely disrespectful and told her that her......

...Impression Management Impression management is a goal-directed conscious or unconscious process in which people attempt to influence the perceptions of others about a person, object, or event. Everyone uses impression management from time to time. * In what situation are you most likely to use impression management? What situation are you most likely not going to work to use impression management? What is the typical difference between these two situations? I would most likely use impression management when seeking employment. It’s very important that the employer receives the impression that you’re a great fit for the company. I wouldn’t use impression management at a family reunion or an event where there’s family and friends who knows me well. The difference in the two situations is that one is with relatives and the other one isn’t. * Provide an example of when you used impression management successfully. What was the outcome and why? Everyone knows that employment is very important and it’s important to impress the hiring managers.
