Looking Glass Selfie

I've always been intrigued with the fact that as a human being it is impossible to see ourselves without the aid of a reflection or capturing an image. Our reflections are personal, unique to the exact moment of being in the location and seeing ourselves but an image can be held on to and shared with others, completely changing the reason for seeing one self. Currently, in our society the act of taking a "selfie" has become a definition of our self image and the image that others have of us. The article I stumbled across, The Social Psychology of the Selfie, has both answered questions and lead to more questions about self perception and the perception we have of one another through the use of foreign mediums rather than experiencing and seeing someone in the flesh.
