In The Tempest, Miranda seems to believe that imagination can't improve 
on reality:

                 "I would not wish
Any companion in the world but you,
Nor can imagination form a shape,
Besides yourself, to like of" (3.1.54-57).

But then, Ferdinand is one of only three males that she has any 
remembrance of.

 >Sebastian willingly yields to experiences he's not sure are

How does this differ from Antipholus of Syracuse's impression of Ephesus?
