This week’s 2 on 1 blog post comes to you courtesy Shackman whose take on the subject can be seen at his blog.

Perception involves arriving at meanings often leading to action. In addition to the nature of the stimuli, and past knowledge, perception is influenced by many other factors.Rather than write a boring post, let me simply share some visuals and quotes. Why reinvent the wheel?

“A rebellion is always legal in the first person, such as “our rebellion.” It is only in the third person – “their rebellion” – that it becomes illegal.”
~ Dr. Benjamin Franklin.

“We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.”
~ Anais Nin.

  1. Perception is a very individual thing. As your cartoons show, two people will see the same situation in very different ways. One will see a mugger running away from his victim, one will see someone late for work and running for the bus. We need always to be aware that our perception might be faulty and that we may have missed what’s actually happening.
