We spend an enormous amount of time and mental energy to understand how people see us and find us attractive. This study will show how to find out that people are satisfied with us.
The new experiment showed that people think about themselves in a completely different way than others. They, as a rule, examine themselves more carefully than the actions of those around them. This is due to the fact that we have a huge amount of information about ourselves, much more than about other people. You know when you gain weight or look tired.
“We are experts of ourselves, but others are not. This makes it difficult to understand how we look in the eyes of others, ”asserted the founder of the study, Epley. The key to knowing what other people think of you is to drop all the information you have and see yourself through the eyes of a stranger. Studies have shown that time helps people to consider their own appearance or actions more fairly.
Therefore, if you see fresh photos or videos with you, you can judge them strictly. But when you look at your picture in a few months or years, you evaluate it with a fresh look, as a stranger views you.
