Perceptions: Understanding Perceptions

Perceptions: Understanding Perceptions

Updated Apr 29, 2020

Henry David Thoreau once wrote, "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." This simple quote sums up the fact that people perceive things differently. Two people may be staring at the same picture, holding the same object, hearing the same words, experiencing the same situation, yet their perceptions may be staggeringly different. In this program, we talk about why that is by looking at what exactly our perceptions are based on and discuss how our experiences shape the way we view the world around us.
