Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Evolving from the same egocentrism and ideas of playing the central part in one's personal fable, adolescents may become preoccupied with what others in their peer groups think of them. Because adolescents become so involved with others' opinions, they believe that an imaginary audience is scrutinizing them wherever they are. No matter where they go in public, they think that their outward behavior and appearances will always be watched like an actor on stage, and that all eyes will be fixated on them-such that every facial blemish or misstep will be noticed. So, a teenage person might spend hours putting on makeup to hide acne only to give up and assume everyone will think they are ugly, or another teenage person might also give up when they think their mouthwash is not working and that everyone will notice their horrible breath.
