Hi,

I asked the IC :"How am I perceived?" and I received hex 52 unchanging.

Judgement:
Keeping Still. Keeping his back still so that he no longer feels his body. He goes into his courtyard and does not see his people. No blame.

Judgement Commentary:
True quiet means keeping still when the time has come to keep still, and going forward when the time has come to go forward. In this way rest and movement are in agreement with the demands of the time, and thus there is light in life.The hexagram signifies the end and the beginning of all movement. The back is named because in the back are located all the nerve fibers that mediate movement. If the movement of these spinal nerves is brought to a standstill, the ego, with its restlessness, disappears as it were. When a man has thus become calm, he may turn to the outside world. He no longer sees in it the struggle and tumult of individual beings, and therefore he has that true peace of mind which is needed for understanding the great laws of the universe and for acting in harmony with them. Whoever acts from these deep levels makes no mistakes.

Initially I thought the hexagram wanted to say that I am perceived as quiet, introverted person. After reading the Judgement Commentary I reconsidered the interpretation - wise, balanced person. Feeling little bit confused...

Thank you very much for all your help.

Actually and in all seriousness, it seems a possible reflection (say, if you'd asked a mirror) of you in a state you might be in precisely as you asked how you are perceived.

your back might be still, you might be quiet in your courtyard, with the time having come to keep still...as you approach the oracle and inquire.

it might "reflect" the Yi's literal perception of you, as you were perceived, at that moment,

If you read it the advice is to walk in your courtyard as if there were no people there. IOW this doesn't answer you question it tells you not to think about what others think of you, to still yourself, not to mind.

Anyway how could others all possibly perceive you the same way anyway.

Often Yi answers the question behind your question. here your concern is with others thoughts and your answer quite clearly tells yourself not to concern yourself with that

One thing that might make it a little easier is if you asked, how am I perceived in this given situation? Otherwise the question becomes too broad. However, in light of the answer given, it may be that you are not noticed. If you are there at all, you are just there. This often happens when people do not have a commanding personality that turns people on or off. It is often the case when someone just goes along with the crowd, and does not really make their voice or their wishes heard.

This may or may not apply to you in this way. You will have to decide. In order for the readers here though to give you their best answers, it may be that you will need to be a little more precise in your questions.

Best wishes for you in this manner. This can be a time of personal discovery.

hooo, Trojan, gene,

Thank you very much for your interpretations. Sorry for the late response from my side - i thought there was no answer to the post (but in fact I forgot to tick mark the email notification).

I have to agree with your interpretations. I do tend to be rather quiet in crowds - especially if I feel disinterest towards the situation or people. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed and not in my element.

At the same time, I am on a journey of personal discovery, as gene said... I met a person who encouraged me to pursue my passions, to go out from the passive state I was in and do things, not just wish things. I have changed and I am still changing. The journey has just begun :)

Concerning the question, the exact formulations was " How am I perceived by men?"
Curious on the current perception (or "evolution" let's say), i cast the coins once again and got 61.3.4.6 (Inner truth) changing to 43 (Breakthrough)...
