Hello, all wonderful people with good -hearts.
As the heading suggests. I'll be telling you about how to introduce yourself in different situations. for example, it can be your interview or the first meeting with a stranger and many more. So, firstly before moving towards the situation it necessary to know the importance of an introduction.

What is all about introducing yourself?

let's take an example from our regular life when we are at our workplace. we daily meet new peoples they can be are going to be a colleague or they can be our customers. So, what's the first thing we want to know about them? obviously, their Name, their qualification, their skill, their nature means it all depends on what the person is. If you are going for a blind date you will be asking about likes or dislikes or professions. So, questions may differ but our only purpose is to simply know about them that's an introduction. To tell someone about yourself according to which question is being asked and what is the situation. why I said according to the situation? because if you are at the metro and some stranger meets you then he can ask your name, your workplace so, you need not answer that I am good at singing or I love playing cricket, right! now moving to the next point.

Why introducing yourself in a good way is necessary?

This is simple to understand we know our first impression is our introduction and by this, another person judges us or assumes about how will be us to them. for example, you are for an interview and you introduce yourself but your lack of confidence was visible with your shivering voice. So, the boss can assume that you are not capable of doing a job for the company even if you have the best qualification, your bad confidence, and way of introducing yourself, ruin everything. and another example can be you met a stranger and when she asked your name you just stand in a straight position with crossed hands and give a precise answer, this will have a bad impression on the stranger that you are rude even if you are not and it was just a normal way of yours.
