Differences in personality traits as self-perceived and as judged by others were examined. A target sample of 80 students were photographed on slide pictures and asked to take the calm-anxious and introvert-extrovert lists. Another sample of 193 students served as judges by watching the target slide pictures and judged them on how calm-anxious and introvert-extrovert they appeared. Results showed that target subjects perceived themselves to be calmer and more extrovert than judgments made by others who watched the target slide pictures and judged them. This indicates that individuals see their personality traits in a more favorable way than others see them in terms of anxiety and introversion judgments.
