Impressions is a term according to Hume that refers to the relatively strong mental experiences caused by sensory stimulation. For Hume, Impression is essentially the same thing as what others called Sensation.

In the psychology context, impressions refer to the judgments, attitudes, or feelings that an individual forms about another person, place, or thing. Impressions can be influenced by various factors, such as an individual's personal experiences, biases, or cultural context.

Examples of impressions in the psychology context include:

  • The judgments or evaluations that an individual forms about another person, based on their appearance, behavior, or other characteristics
  • The attitudes or feelings that an individual has towards a particular place, event, or object
  • The first impressions that an individual forms about another person or situation
  • The influence that an individual's impressions have on their behavior or decisions

Impressions are an important aspect of social and cognitive functioning, and they can influence the ways in which individuals perceive, evaluate, and respond to their environment. Psychologists and other mental health professionals may study impressions in order to understand their role in shaping behavior and perception, and to explore ways in which they can be influenced or changed.
