is our self perception cheeting on us?

A completely new way of comparison between our own perception of how we perform and the perception of others – worth watching it! A  number of women described themselves to a forensic artist who could not see them.  He produced a drawing of how they perceived themselves and then produced an image of how other people perceived them.

The result shows us another perspective of how slef perception can be mislead by the influence of perfect beauty through photoshop and all the other sorts of aestetic pressure produced by fashion and media industry.
