How We See Ourselves and How We See Others

Very interesting review paper in "Science" last week. It's slightly OT, but I thought that members of this forum might find it a good read (I first heard about "the 4 agreements" on gordo's forum after all). You won't probably have access to the full pdf, but shoot me an email (fbiemar_at_temple_dot_edu) and I'll fetch it your way.

Here's the abstract:
People see themselves differently from how they see others. They are immersed in their own sensations, emotions, and cognitions at the same time that their experience of others is dominated by what can be observed externally. This basic asymmetry has broad consequences. It leads people to judge themselves and their own behavior differently from how they judge others and those others' behavior. Often, those differences produce disagreement and conflict. Understanding the psychological basis of those differences may help mitigate some of their negative effects
