Chapter 3: Perception

  • What is perception?

    • The process by which you filter and interpret what your senses tell you so you can create a meaningful picture of the world.

  • Why do people have different perceptions?

    • Physical differences, past experiences/background, present feelings/circumstances

  • How does perception affect communication?

    • Most people have shared or in-common meanings


Perception

Perception

All human beings are born with the ability to perceive things or beings in our environment.

How we process this input, organize it into meaning & concepts, & describe it to one another, is learned.

When faced with something new, we have a ‘gut response’ to it based on prior knowledge or experience. Only with time & practice do we learn to consider other aspects of what we perceive.

This is especially true of our perceptions of people that are unfamiliar to us or places where we have never been.

Richard cory

Richard Cory

Whenever Richard Cory went downtown

We people on the pavement looked at him

He was a gentleman from sole to crown

Clean-favored and imperially slim

And he was always quietly arrayed

He was always human when he talked

But he still flustered pulses when he said, “Good morning!”

And he glittered when he walked

And he was rich, yes, richer than a king

And admirably schooled in every grace

In time we thought that he was everything

To make us wish that we were in his place


Richard cory continued

Richard Cory….continued

So on he worked, and waited for the night

And went without the meat and cursed the break

And Richard Cory, on a clam summer night,

Went home and put a bullet through his head

What was the townsfolk’s perception of Richard Cory?

What was his perception of himself?

What lesson does this poem teach us about perception?


Perception activity

Perception Activity

You will first look quickly at a picture & write down a ‘gut’ response: three words that express your initial feelings and thoughts

Next you will look at the picture longer & write down your interpretation of what is going on in a complete sentence.

You will then have a chance to discuss this with two partners. As a team, write down one objective sentence that completely describes what you see, but with no value words or assumptions.

CONCLUSION:

  • Recognize your gut response – 80% are negative to neutral

  • Take time to observe and reflect on what you see

  • Expose yourself to new cultures and people

  • Travel or read a lot about others’ lives

  • Eliminate assumptions and stereotypes

  • Sometimes, your view depends on how far away from the scene you are
