I can see that scar on your face…

Ten people were asked to take part in a psychology experiment. A make-up artist applied a nasty scar to each person’s forehead and then showed the person what it looked like. Each person was then sent into a doctor’s surgery and told to make an appointment and to sit down in the busy waiting room.

Ten out of ten people came out of the surgery and complained that people treated them differently, 100% of them said that everyone was staring at their scar. But here is what they didn’t know…

Before they went into the surgery, the make-up artist telling them that she wanted to “touch up the scar” had actually removed it… there was no scar on their foreheads.

It just goes to show that sometimes perception is everything…
