    But I do think we are self conscious in our appearance by default. Especially if we are improving our fitness in one way or another. Just by hanging out with friends and family that you haven't seen for months and being given all sorts of compliments over a change they see in your appearance seems to sometimes be "unbelievable" but at the same time gracious to hear their perspectives.

    Depends, is our perception of others different from that ourselves in this scenario?

    I think most of the time your premise is true. I tend to see people, both their personalities, characters and their outward appearance better than those people see in and of themselves.

    I think people are, generally, hard on themselves. I think that is true for myself too.

    This seems to be true - as you said - in some cases. In others, people see/describe themselves as more attractive, more "masculine", more intelligent, etc. Where the line between self confidence and ego lies, however, is beyond me.

    True. Furthermore, the mirror shows me differently than I see myself in photographs. And not just because the mirror image is reversed.

    Somehow my mind alters the mirror view, making me as I once was - slimmer & younger. A photograph shows me the depressing truth. Odd how these psychological optical illusions work.

    Other illusions involve our self-image, in non-photographic ways. I imagine myself as shy and weak; everyone else faults me for being too forceful and dominant. So I've come to accept the latter majority view, though I still fail to see it myself.

    America is only great in the psychological theory that states that the more people say something is good, the more will believe it. My opinion is that America is more of Quantity than quality, EG, more obesity, more unhealthy food, more consumer products. It's just a giant cesspool for corporations to dump nasty stuff in when they want it to sell well.

    It has become this, but not everyone has abandoned independent thoughts. Sacrifice is require for progress. The U.S. forgot that a long time ago.

    It is important to understand the balance between your own image of yourself and how society sees you. If society thinks you are fat, ugly, and just in general someone that should not be associated with, this could be true to some extent. You have to keep an open mind about yourself and other people's opinion of you to truly get an holistic understanding of who you are as a person. If you notice what people are telling you, then you obviously know it is true. But if you can't see it, then you have to accept that you either have not find that part of you yet or it does not exist. We are constantly evolving everyday, we have so much to discover about ourselves that we can not limit ourselves to certain views and certain opinion.

    Don't take this the way, but you should seek psychiatric help.

    True... but the state of the economy dictates this. If we're in an expanison, then yes, people will spend money on lots of useless things they do not need. However, in a recession, nobody is going to buy squat because no one has the disposable income to do so.
