I can never tell if I look good or not. Sometimes I like the way I look in photos whereas other people think I'm making funny faces or look different, whereas at other times people think I look good in photos I hate.
I think it's natural that we pick apart our faces and focus on our worst features, when in reality other people won't find them to be nearly as noticeable, or might even think they look nice. Like, I hate my smile because it's so wide and I think it makes me look like the Joker, but I've gotten compliments about it.

I think everyones interpretations of beauty are completely different, you might think you look like a bag of gravel (weird thing to look like but everyone is using this image) but there will be people in the world who think you are gods gift to the earth. I'm not arrogant i'm confident i like how i look and use it to my advantage haha never be put down by how you think you look more than likely you have a bias against yourself and the rest of the world will perceive you differently although if you keep believing your ugly and hide away then why should they?
I definitely would have to agree with you but humans are complex so it can be difficult to objectively judge someone else's looks because there will always be some factor which will distort perceptions. If you know the person then their personality for instance. If they have a fantastic/horrible personality then it can override their looks. I know someone who most people would probably call average yet because of her amazing personality to me is someone who I could not take my eyes off of. On the other hand, I know someone who has a bad personality but is physically attractive but who I can't bear to even hear let alone see.
