Be it to impress a first date, prospective in-laws, or one's boss, many people have a tendency to overcompensate, or adjust their normal behavior.

In doing so, however, their efforts to impress don't often succeed.

In fact, they might inadvertently find themselves putting these people off, resulting in an even bigger uphill battle than they began with.
