Perception of People

Mike Sanders says that each Blogger is four Bloggers (march 17 post)

the blogger you are (person B)
the blogger you think you are (person A)
the blogger others think you are (person D)
the blogger you want others to think you are (person C)

very true, but not just about bloggers. This is a perception issue: I perceive myself to be person A, if I am humble and have an accurate mirror to gauge myself by, I may be accurate in that perception. However, more often than not, I am not. I am in fact person B. As I see myself, I have a model of who I would like to be perceived as, person C. However others often perceive me as something totally different, person D. with all these differing perceptions, it's truly amazing that anyone knows who any one else truly is.

confused yet?
