Dealing with impression-inconsistent information

Dealing with impression-inconsistent information

Please write about a time when you learned something about someone that was inconsistent with your prior impression of that person. For example, you may have discovered that your nerdy, shy friend also drives a red corvette and works part-time as a go-go dancer at a local club. Describe how you dealt with this impression-inconsistent information. Did you explain it away? Did you keep your impression of that person intact? Did your impression substantially change? First talk about your prior impression of that individual (can be someone that you know or a public figure) and then explain how you dealt with information that didn’t fit with your view of him/her.
