If you really want to give a good first impression you should have something novel to say.  And if you have something really new and interesting to say then it is often a little bit annoying. So if you want to give a good first impression – be generous and be authentic and use a good body language, and look the person you are talking to in the eyes.

But if you want to make a very good first impression – and if you are willing to take the risk – use your intelligence to its fullest, and introduce something inventive and new into the conversation!
