A question of self
Just looking up the etymology of 自 and yellowbridge reckons this is meant to represent the nose and adds:
"Chinese people still point to their noses when referring to themselves"
..this seems to ring some old bells for me but I can't recall ever seeing in any recent time. How common is this to still see? Should we waiguoren adopt it? ...would that be strange?
