I just learned today about the process of perception and it is so interesting!
Wow, that all sounds super interesting! Maybe I will consider that more when I perceive things.
Basically perception is creating meaning of objects, events, situations, and other phenomena. The way you view yourself and the world. Perception goes through a process that follows: Selection > Organization > Interpretation. Some things that even influence the process of perception are experiences, culture, age, gender, etc.
It definitely affects how you "perceive" life HAHA!
