'A caricature is putting the face of a joke on the body of a truth'. Writer Joseph Conrad's words ring true in the real world too. We often unwittingly create caricatures which affect our relationships. We over-exaggerate characteristics and project our expectations, almost forcing things to play out in a way that will gratify our beliefs. If we're not careful, we lose sight of the people involved and see them in the distorted picture we've created. You can reach a greater depth of communication today.
