    There is no real way of knowing.

    It's difficult, though, trying to figure this out. I don't want people to think of me as someone they need to protect. But, when people see me, maybe they see the sadness I know lingers in my eyes. Maybe they see the hope that outlines my features, or maybe the anger boiling...

    I wonder what people really see What I see.

    Are we seeing the same color? Same shape? Texture? formatting into object, meaning, definition... I believe not because we have define our own way in seeing thing in our experience.

    What do you see when you see homeless man

    I just constantly wonder what people really see

    in me. I'm shy, at times very insecure. I don't take very many pics. Of myself because I'm not confident in my appearance, I can dress nice or dress down. I'm social awkward, Then other times I'm the life of the party...usually at home or my really small social circle. I joke...

    Growing up with verbally abusive parents will

    make you question who you are, and if you're really good enough for everyone. Which is an impossible feat, but I still try to please everyone nonetheless. This makes me wonder what others see. I've heard all of the "Your so cute and beautiful!" quotes as well as the "Gaming...

    Will the Man With No Eyes See Darkness?

      In my younger years, which is not that long ago for me, I first wondered if people saw different colours…because if you see red as I see green how am I to know the difference, because we both call the different colours the same thing. Now days I think science has...

    It's funny.... Most people like me,

    I don't understand why... I'm really a stand offish kinda person until I get to know somebody is trustworthy and they are worthy enough to be called my friend. I don't trust easy, people have let me down pretty much most of my life... Including close family members... I have...

    Perhaps we are all blind,

    and the true vision of the world is still hidden from us. We all pursue our causes with a vision of change, but are any of us truly right? In our own eyes, yes. In the eyes of our enemies, however, we are wrong. What we see in front of us may be the same, but our perceptions of...

    The Poetry of Perception

    You may find that person in life that is an exact replica to you, your alternate thumb print so to speak.  But the truth is, we are all individuals and as such our perceptions vary. I know what I see when I look at that plain wall, in the mirror, at 'him', etc.  But...

    A psychologist walked around a room

    while teaching stress management to the audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the 'half empty or half full' question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: 'how heavy is this glass of water?' Answers ranged from 8 to 20 oz. she...

    I mostly want to know how guys experience love.

    It just doesn't click in my brain that guys feel the same way girls do about others. And no one ever gives me a direct or real answer when I ask. It's really rather annoying.

    I often wonder if people see how warm

    and open my heart is. Do they feel the love I give? How do they really see me? To me, it's all so much deeper than what's on the outside.

    What do you see? Yeah there's the brown hair

    and eyes, but what else? You can't see what's inside, that's why it's so easy for others to judge, to assume, and to turn away. But we may have more in common than you'd ever imagined. So, take a closer look at someone next time you start to judge =]

    What do you see, when you look at me?

    Do you see me for who I am? Or do you see me through the tinted lenses of predetermined stereotypes? Do you see me as a unique individual, or do I seem like a cliche nobody? Who am I to you? Do I mean anything at all? Am I your friend? Or just a source of entertainment to you...

    I'm a rather solitary person.

    I prefer to speak only when necessary or spoken to. Its just the way I've grown up. I feel like I have two lives. Who I really am, and the silent doll at school. I mean, I'm not bullied and I have never been, but I am definitely not happy mostly. I think much more than I speak...
