Imaginary Audience - Examples

Examples

Examples of imaginary audience: A teen that is affected by imaginary audience might be self-conscious and may worry about what other people think of him/her. He/she may change his/her clothes constantly before leaving the house to make sure he/she is presentable for everybody that is watching him/her. He/she may also spend extra time on make-up and hair to better appeal to the audience he/she feel they need to impress. A teen may also change his/her wardrobe to match “trends” that start. He/she may also believe that he/she is better than everyone else and everyone is constantly looking at him/her and judging, feeling the need to look “perfect”. A teen who has a pimple on their face will think that everyone will notice and that it is covering half of their face. (This is one very common example of Imaginary audience.) In reality, only a small percentage of those people have any interest in a person’s activities, and a maturing worldview will usually reduce the impression that this imaginary audience exists. Some people, however, maintain this misapprehension well into their adult years.
