Is kendinize iyi bak wrong?

For example if I mean plural (i.e. kendiniz) but not formal (i.e. bak).

Quoting qdemir

... bak覺n (IF)

... bak覺n覺z (F)

 

I´m just a little confused. Acording to this http://www.turkishlanguage.co.uk/imperative.htm :

 

verb stem (IF)

verb stem + 覺n (F)

verb stem + 覺n覺z (very formal/public request)

The verb should take -覺n (IF), or -覺n覺z (F) to agree with the 2nd person plural reflexive pronoun kendinize .

 

Notice the difference:

 

Kendine  iyi bak.           (NOT ...bak覺n or bak覺n覺z.)

Kendinize  iyi bak覺n(覺z).   (NOT ...bak.)
