How do you see yourself - does your self-image match what others see?
(We often misconstrue the way we come across to others)
I see myself.....in a totally bi polar way.
I'm superman one day, a pile of poo the next day...I'd love to know how other folks saw me, but it probably wouldn't truly help me either way.
Way cool. Thanks for sharing. I go though that, too. I generally see you as a guy fighting to keep your mind-body-and-spirit on top of it all, like myself, but strong enough to lead the charge in areas that are supposedly taboo for us to talk about.
Yes. I think so. My friends know me. I am a very liberal thinker.
It is not possible to see yourself as others see you. What you see is an imagined self that is created naturally in order to help you survive. We have dozens of defense mechanisms protecting our imagined self. One is like this one: to know that I'm correct about this matter!!!!!
I'm fairly self-critical, always challenging myself to be better, think more cautiously, learn a smarter way to do things......basically, I'm steadfast on the road to improvement in most aspects.
From what I hear (understand) in terms of how I'm perceived by "others," I'm always all together, self-assured, sensible, rational and dependable. I'd say that's pretty much opposite ends of the spectrum!!
I hope not. I am much more critical of myself than people around me, most of the time.
No - I really don't see myself as others see me - but then again everyone is different - everyone has a different concept than the other person. I could use more confidence - I don't have the 'disease of conceit' as Dylan sang about. I am always learning ways of how I can better myself from time management, to lifestle, and maintaining me and those close to me. Good question.

The opinions of others on ourselves - why do we care?Whilst we can all try to say "I don't care what anyone thinks of me" it's likely to be a lie - we do so! But why? Any answers?
