Factors That Affect Our Perceptions of Reality
Manage episode 343734392 series 2912726
In this episode, I talk about how perceptions influence our everyday life. It is amazing how two people can experience the same event and have two completely different emotional responses to that event! This is where perception comes into play. Through internal factors such as emotions, memories, and values as well as external factors involving media, societal norms, and culture, we see our perceptions influencing the lense at which we view life.
Throughout the episode, I also discuss the different filters of perception including; stereotypes, selective perception, projection, expectations, and interests. Through these, we see the individualized impacts of perceptions and how we sometimes fall victim to negative perceptions as well as adopting positive ones.
This episode concludes with the discussion of the differing perceptions of all people, and how acknowledging and accepting these can lead to a more positive and harmonious life. Tune in for more!
