To know others on ourselves

There is a saying that says, "through ourselves we know others". But do we really do that?

I mean that the answer to this is both no and yes. NO, I can not, for example, know exactly what others think, experience and feel etc. But YES, we can much more recognize self-deception, denial, disclaimers and lies in others because we ourselves dared to see and meet ourselves in the same things

And this can make us "scary" for some people, because not everyone is ready to see what we see in them. A bit sad indeed, "because usually we can not see ourselves clearly until we have seen ourselves through the eyes of others". How do you think we came to get to know ourselves so well?
