I always wondered if it was possible to generate a visual image of
1) A persons self presented to the world
2) A persons authentic self
3) The difference between the authentic and presented self -the filter that could be the ego, distorting the authentic self into the presented self as well as distorting the view of the world presented to the inner awareness of the person.
After years of research I created an software algorithm to create a visual image of a persons ego:
-Red areas showing a person acting beneath their authentic potential, beating themselves up or not giving themselves enough credit -usually an indicator of a feeling of lack of self worth
-Blue areas where they were exaggerating their authentic potential, possiblly being over confident or even arrogant.
Green areas where there was no distortion and there was a match between the deep down authentic self of a person and the presented self they showed the world.
Juts being more noble in the red areas and more humble in the blue areas led to a person making the presented self to the world match the authentic self within -resulting in them being true to themselves.
