36. When you look at yourself before going out, and you are trying to see yourself from the outside, can you describe a bit about what this “other person” is like? What do they like, dislike, what sorts of judgments do they have? Is this “outer eye” based on someone you know or once knew?

what?

I'm not sure, but I guess they think, "Oh, hi. " And go about their day.

Thankfully I don't think like this.

don't like to be noticed. not very approachable, but not likely to be rude if you do speak to them. not frivolous or ditzy. not clumsy or shy. not judgemental but thoughtful and internalized.

of course this isn't all necessarily true.

I haven't thought about doing this before. When I look at myself I see my reflection through my own eyes. I don't see the point in assuming someone else's opinions or parroting what someone has said to me in the past. I think it would probably feel miserable.

I have no clue. I only know how I see myself. The rest is a mystery . . . which is quite fun, most of the time.

It mostly relates to my weight/body image. I imagine myself walking on the street and think about how I would feel with people looking at me. This probably came from societal standards around the female body and its portrayal in modern media.

I look cold and distant, hard to get to know, awkward

They will compliment me and says look at you you look beautiful than I'll thanks as usual

My outer eye is pretty oblivious to other people's feedback. I'm often critical of my waistline and the way my clothes fit over my waist and shoulders. It doesn't take much effort or hair product to clip my hair up into a very loud, curly statement updo.

I tend not to do this, but if I do it's normally my parents voices saying something about my weight (not that they do that nowadays but they did a lot from when I was about 9 to 19).

I think it's literally just me. Standing there making a face at myself and then cracking up and loving myself.

I teach at a fashion school, I need to have a “look” that says fashion aware

I hope im considered to be a Nice, happy woman who stands for what i do and that is inspired by the romantic and classy look. I cant say its based on other than who i want to be.

She likes dancing with no shoes on, laughing until her face hurts, and seems like she can stare straight into your soul. She’s impossibly elegant. She’s someone I could never be. If this were based on anyone, it would be based on who I think I should have become.
