How You View Yourself vs. How Others View You

See what happens when a forensic artist sketches people based solely on descriptions given by themselves and a stranger.

Gil Zamora, an FBI trained forensic artist from the San Jose Police Department, helped create sketches of people based on how they described themselves, and then again how a random stranger viewed them. When looking at the two drawings side by side, sometimes it looked like they were describing two different people who looked alike, as demonstrated by the pictures of Lani.


Some of the participants had this to say after their sketches were completed, and they saw the difference between how they described themselves and how others described them.

I should be more grateful for my natural beauty. It affects the choices and the friends that we make, the jobs we apply for, how we treat our children, it impacts everything. It couldn’t be more critical to your happiness.

We spend a lot of time as women analysing and trying to fix the things that aren’t quite right, and we should spend more time appreciating the things we do like.

You are more beautiful than you think.
