Vivian Zayas, Ph.D., is an associate professor and the director of undergraduate studies in the department of psychology at Cornell University. You always hear people say to be careful not to judge others.  But judging others is actually an innate part of us. When we first meet someone our brains automatically start making judgments about them based on anything we see or gather about them in the first seven seconds.  But could the first seven seconds with someone actually determine the rest of your relationship with them?  Dr. Vivian Zayas discuss her research on the impact of first impressions on relationships.
