And I'm a big fan of 'instinct', especially with people-stuff. For instance, if you ever bump into members of 'the high and the mighty' or Showbiz folk that you think you "know" already (from their TV appearances say), you might be surprised by your 'instinctive' reaction at a close-up meeting. Personally, I've 'instinctively' disliked most of them, even the ones I'd liked a lot before. Now part of that is maybe because faces seen in real life are subtly different from on-screen (the camera _ always_ lies), but I put the rest down to the 'aura' or 'presence' that we all project out to the world - and that seems to be perceived "by instinct" but not by the camera.
