However, I am surprised such an incident occured to you. The opposite of this happens with me where I get the advantage of the feeling teachers apparent partiality. Majority of the teachers I have encountered are feelers. The way the system works for me is that if you can get on to the positive side of the teacher earlier on then your rest of the study year will go very smoothly. Every year, in my first week- I will be the most punctual, the most obedient, the most attentive and the model student. The teacher will obviously take a liking to me. Those who are talkative and disruptive will definitely never be able to get on to teachers good books as much as I can- even with all their sweet extroverted talk. The result- Whenever I ask for an extension or if I have made a mistake then the teacher excuses me while the others who were initially non-punctual and talkative and well, slackers don't get off in a similar scenario.
The first impression is the lasting impression. And I have experienced it first hand. It doesn't matter if I am not a model student for the rest of the year because the teacher has already formed their impression. I can take as much unfair advantage of this ímpression' even if I make millions of mistakes and be not as competent as their initial impression. Besides, I don't really need to take any advantage as I am a model student for the rest of the year as well.
I know Feeling teachers are partial but I was surprised they were partial with a hard working student and not with students that hardly- work.
