Most of the time, why do we feel we are misunderstood? Why do we feel that we are judged continuously by people around us? Why do we feel often that people don’t get my true feeling or true intention?
All these questions have one answer. It is because of my own thinking pattern and behaviour and not because of some problems with them.
Yes, people judge me and make an opinion about me what they see and hear from me. I, do the same. Nobody has the time to sit down and analyse my true intention.
The truth is …
you can change people’s perception by changing your behaviour or do
not get affected at all about what people perceive about you.
4 interesting facts about perception.
1. Perception is simply how an individual thinks or become aware through the senses. It is a model created continuously by the brain to perceive reality. The thinking pattern differs from individual to individual. So, the same event can be perceived differently by each individual depending upon his thinking pattern and interpretation.
2. Perception is something that developed and changed continuously as we grow up. It has grown with the awareness and understanding of the external world as we grow up. Anything in the external world, objects, events, people are attached to some kind of stimulation, organization, interpretation, evaluation and memory.
3. Perception is often mistaken as reality as we get so involved in our perceived thinking of people, places and things around us that we create altogether a different world. May not be the real world as it is. Then perception becomes our reality. In other words, perception is our concept of reality.
4. There is no wrong or right things in life. Whatever you choose to do, depending upon your perception, you are responsible for its outcome and consequences.
