    Hello. My name is x and the task which I have been assigned with today is to discover how other people actually see me. It's something which most of us can never be sure of, and a question that once famously perplexed no less a literary character than the great Robert Burns who worded it thus:

    O wad some Power the giftie gie us

    To see oursels as ithers see us!

    It wad frae mony a blunder free us,

    An' foolish notion:

    So, I'd like to ask 5 people in the audience to be kind enough to describe me in one sentence. Please raise your hand if you'd like to contribute:

    Yes, the gentleman over there with glasses in the yellow shirt ..... and so on.
