Many medical students and physicians who have had the opportunity to view a videotape of themselves interviewing a patient have been surprised, even startled, to see and hear themselves as others see and hear them. Many of us expect to look and sound as wise and charismatic as Walter Cronkite or Eric Sevareid and may initially blame the distortion of the videotape equipment when that is glaringly not the case. It is uncomfortable but also important for us to realize how we actually do look, sound, and come across to others, especially in our doctor-patient and other caring relationships.
