Hello Alfred,

Tangential to my initial point, but you're quite right as usual.

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.
