    Yeah, I think this summarizes myself. I *have* to trust any sort of outside 'data', because otherwise I'd be where I was at as a teenager, just really, truly believing I was horribly unattractive (well, and I DID have a few yrs there where I was more gangly/bizarre-looking than most teenagers ). It's admittedly always been a problem area for me, & hard to let go of that focus.

    There are aspects of my looks that I'm insecure about, but I try not to point them out to others, in case they hadn't noticed. :-P
    I'm highly tripped up by one feature that's totally out of my control and basically traumatizes me if I don't just 'let go' of it. But other than that these days I'm pretty secure and happy with how I look, even though I know it's not everyone's cup of tea and some of my features are a little more unusual (i.e. nothing that people stereotypically associate with 'beauty').

    I'm about average. No one's throwing themselves at my feet, but then again no one's fleeing in horror. Had serious self image/confidence problems as a kid and young adult, which was a shame, because looking back I wasn't bad looking at all.

    I just thought of a compliment I got from a boyfriend years ago: "You know, you're nobody's dream girl, but when I look at you, I think you're so pretty." That's about the size of it.

    I am overweight and I hate that about myself. It think it has more to do with respect than with beauty. If feel like people will think that I am not very intelligent just because I am overweight.

    Sometimes I think it would be nice to be beautiful. If I start to feel too badly about myself, I go to Walmart and look at everyone (real people v. TV). Then I start to feel better.

    One problem I have always had as an INFJ is that I am so lost in my thoughts of whatever recent project I am involved in that I completely forget to look at my outfit, fingernails, or anything as earthly as that.

    i came to accept myself, meaning my objective flaws are not unattractive to my "taste",
    but that does not stop me from assuming/calculating that other's find my flaws unatractive/unpalatable. and they do. since i accept myself, i can forgett about it though. i don't care about the taste of random strangers. but i can not assume they find me attractive. I feel that my "taste" for my objetive flaws is odd and rare brand of taste, no one shares it. i can naively assume they find me acceptable. i often do, only to find out i am not so acceptable to them...

    I was looking at old photographs of myself and I saw that I was a perfectly cute little kid. It was when I was eight years old and saddled with a pair of hideous-looking glasses that I started thinking that I was ugly. Also, it didn't help that I was always the smallest kid in my class. I believed myself to be "little and ugly." It wasn't a very pleasant feeling.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.
