Perception is how something is regarded, understood, or interpreted. Perception of the same stimulus varies because different people view things differently based on the contexts of their past and current preferences. Therefore, we seek to change someone’s perception or future expectations. People perceive things differently. We focus our attention on different aspects of a message based on what interests us, what is familiar to us, or what we consider essential.

The three major factors influencing perception are motivational, emotional, and experience. These factors, especially motivation and emotion, significantly contribute to how the person perceives a situation. Perception is important because it helps you understand the world around you. Our perception is essential to recognize because it is the driving force behind our reaction to things.

Perceptions are often good to change over time because people often say they want to change but aren’t prepared to make them. So having the desire to see things differently is an important aspect or component that creates room for us to learn and develop new perceptions. There are many theories behind perception, one being Gibson’s direct theory of perception. This is the idea that we perceive simply by using the information we receive through our senses, and this is enough information for us to make sense of the world around us. 

One daily life example of perception is one person might perceive that a glass of water is half empty, whereas the other might think it’s half full. We all have different perceptions based on our experiences and interests.

To conclude, perception is a necessary process. Through this complex process, a person makes interpretations of the stimulus or situation they are faced with.
