The Ideal Self

A recent huffington post article highligthed something intresting that has become the focus in todays day and age, and that is how we see ourselves and what our ideal selves should and could be. Photographer Scott Chasserot receny did an experiment where h took before shops of willing participants and then procedded to alter it to fit the participans ideal self image while taking a brain scan to see which photos were ost pleasurable. Essentially he altered the photos untill the brain was happiest with how we saw ourselves. it was a pretty cool study that brought to mind the fact that not many people really accept how they look mentally even thought they say they are happy with the way we loo and will always want to change something even in the sligthest if given the chance.
