          Abstract

          What do you see when you look in the mirror? A man, woman, your hairstyle, face, wrinkles, age, attire? Do you see a person who has particular parents, siblings, neighbours or friends? Do you see a person who has certain beliefs, who has specific social background, one who belongs to a particular religion, nation or ethnic group? Do you notice skin colour or an individual having a particular personality? Do you accept what you see? Or do you wish you were someone else? Are you honest? All these considerations refer to identity. How we perceive ourselves, the groups, and categories we belong make us into who we are. In addition, there are lot of things you cannot observe in the mirror.
