Many people may have had a similar experience like this, that is, when looking in the mirror, they find that their looks are not low, and they even think they will look good. However, when taking pictures, especially when they are taking pictures, they will feel like themselves. The face value is very low, and the face is also very unrefined. This has also caused many people to have doubts, and even many people have anxious looks because of this. What kind of self is the most real one? What are the differences and changes in the appearance of these two methods? In fact, scientific research has proved that the person in the mirror may not be the real you. Let’s go and see what is going on.
Why do people think they look better when they look in the mirror? This is also a common cognition and idea that most people have. Many people think that they will look more beautiful in the mirror. Is there a change in your appearance when you look in the mirror? In fact, this is not the case. We can agree with this because the mirror may have been “confusing” your eyes. If you look in a mirror, the object appears to be a mirror image, that is, it is upside-down. For example, when you raise your right hand, the left hand is actually raised in the mirror. And maybe it is precisely because of such a basic characteristic that makes you deceived by the mirror.
Even the Mona Lisa in the world famous paintings cannot escape this rule. After people process the Mona Lisa portrait we usually see through mirroring, most people find that the Mona Lisa portrait in the mirror on the right seems to be a little bloated, while the portrait on the left looks more beautiful. In fact, there are many people in life. At first glance, we don’t think they look good, but as we get along, we will find that they will look more and more pleasing to the eye. Psychologically it is called the “exposure phenomenon”.
For us, our appearance is reversed when looking in the mirror. At this time, the mirror reaction itself does not have a great impact on our facial appearance and appearance, but because we usually see ourselves, we are already familiar with this image through the mirror, and then we can compare ourselves and the mirror in the photo. If you compare yourself in the mirror, you will find that it is still the best looking in the mirror. This is also because a visual habit has been formed, and the exposure phenomenon also has a certain relationship.
In addition, many people feel that their photos are not good-looking. This is because the photos are static after they are taken, and when we look in the mirror, they are dynamic. The above visual principle shows that some dynamic things can stimulate our brain more than static things. This phenomenon is called the frozen face effect. Some studies have shown that the human brain becomes more active when it accepts some dynamic things, and on the contrary, when facing some static things, the brain’s activity is relatively low.
Another point is also very important, and that is the focal length chosen when shooting. When we look in the mirror, we can adjust the angle or distance arbitrarily according to our needs, but the moment you press the shutter button when taking a photo, your posture at that moment is frozen, and there is no way to continue to change it. of. In fact, the focal length of a normal lens that people see in the eyes is only about 50 mm. However, if the focal length is shortened or lengthened, it will have a great impact on the appearance. For example, the shorter the focal length, the less the person’s appearance may look like. The more unreal it will be, and as the focal length is lengthened, the facial features of a person at this time seem to gradually become more attractive. It can be seen that these reasons have a very important impact!
In addition, studies have shown that when people look in the mirror, they automatically beautify their appearance by 30%. That is to say, when looking in the mirror, the appearance is relatively the highest, followed by the person who is familiar with you. , And the one with the lowest appearance is the self in ordinary photos.
