The third-person effect: Am I the only one who is not influenced?

As a complement to my previous post about cognitive distortions, today I would like to talk about something that usually affects us without realizing it and it is the effect of the third person.

Each person tends to have a very particular perception of himself, it could be said that everyone has a definition that describes them perfectly. In addition to having a definition of our own, obviously, we also make a definition of others, basically a way to personalize the reality we have around us and the people who coexist with us in that reality.
