Horn Effect-If for example your in a job Interview, the first thing you say is "the weather is crap and I hate long days" to your next possible employer, the person who is interviewing you will automatically assume that you are generaly a negative person, and will probably assume all other traits about you are bound to be negative, and will therfore probably not consider hiring you.

Halo Effect- The opposite of Horn Effect; if you come into the interview with a smile and say "Isn't today and awesome day!?", the interviewer will have a straight and simple first impression of you, so he/she automatically assumes all your other traits and personality are bound to be positive and outgoing, and he/she will then most likely consider giving you the position.
