Perceptionism

Today's metro horoscope suggests that I challenge my public perception. Without discussing the merits of bothering to read a horoscope I'm forced to wonder how you even attempt to change other people's perception of you.

The key problem is do you know how you're perceived by others? It's hardly as if you can get them to complete a questionnaire. If we accept that what you see isn't necessarily what you get, how much can you actually know of yourself or others?

Like many of my thoughts and considerations, these may be questions without answers. You can only hope to project the image you'd like to see of yourself, the image you admire in others - that's the ideal, then hope for the best!

Or, alternatively, you could simply not give a crap what other people's perceptions of you are :-)
