It makes sense that we might want to see inverted photos of ourselves.
I mean, who wants to look at themselves backwards from what they are used to?
This is of course about preferring things that we have already been exposed to.
If you don’t know: We view songs the same way.
My favorite test was when people looked at photographs of themselves and their friends that were either regular or inverted, as if seen in a mirror. We prefer the regular photos of our friends, because that’s how we’re used to seeing them, but we like the inverted photos of ourselves, because that’s how we see ourselves when we look in the mirror.
