Delusion...Friend or Foe ?

 So...
We view something...
Let's use a RED DRESS as an example...

We walk into our local boutique and we are startled at the beauty of the RED DRESS on the mannequin..
That dress is GORGEOUS and SEXY and PERFECT for an evening soiree...
We MUST have the RED DRESS....

As we stand ogling the fabulous-ness, in comes Sally,,,(a second customer)..
She is also STRUCK by the RED DRESS...
She is actually OFFENDED by it....
She finds it FLAMBOYANT and TACKY and useful ONLY in a BROTHEL..
She leaves quickly, in a huff, mumbling about the decaying morals of our society, etc.

Enter a third customer,,,Margaret...
Margaret takes one look at the RED DRESS, and summons the saleswoman, as she wishes to purchase
it immediately!
She declares that she has NEVER seen a more PERFECT DRESS FOR THE OFFICE....
That it is SUITABLE and ELEGANT and SUBLIMELY CONSERVATIVE...
Margaret works for a prestigious accounting firm....

So, there you have it.....
One Red Dress....
Three customers...
Three utterly opposing opinions on the SAME Dress....

Which woman is correct ?
Which one is delusional ?
Is there ONE TRUTH ?
