People often like to hide themselves. They'll dress up as something else. You may see something, but did you see them?
How many people have the guts to turn up as who they are? Naked? How many people have the faculties to work out what they look like?

This copy comes off the internet bullshit emitter known as "bnet", a charming source of classic wal-mart tinged management pschobabble and commercial soullessness.
