Self perception and the perception by others

“Whenever two people meet, they are in reality six: each of the two as he sees himself, both as seen by the other, and each as he really is.” – Quote of the psychologist William James We meet daily other people and communicate with them. But why we tend to sympathise straight off with some and others not, is sometimes puzzling to us. Certain is, that our own ego plays a main role in the way that we other people encounter, and how we assess them. Yet, how did our own ego take form over the years, and which impressions influenced us? These and many more questions are approached within the work – partly explaining, partly experimental. The human face plays a particular important part, then it helps us not only as a individual to understand, it is also the most obvious parameter to assess other persons.
