We can never know for sure that our own perception is right. We have different ideas and understandings. Consulting with other people allows both sides to understand the reason and logic behind everyones ideas. Depending on the topic there may be solid truth but when it involves a debate there can almost never be one answer as long as there is evidence to back up each person's own perception.
I think there is no right or wrong in how we look at our perceptions, every individual has their own way of thinking and perspective of the world. Consulting with other people will help to see from their own point of view, however, I don't think there is a right or wrong side in our perceptions.
In my opinion in every situation that happens to us we think or we are sure that our perception of things are right but I think in reality we can never be sure of anything.What we want to be true or we are sure is true and what is actually true are not always the same.Although, most of the time we do the things that we think are right without thinking about people who are going to be affected and that we may actually be incorrect. Usually when people consult with each other about a problem or something each of them consider their solution to be true, but after all everything depends on peoples logical choices and I think that our perceptions define our reality.
When we consult other people for their perceptions of things, we usually will grasp the same perception as the person we are consulting. If we stick to our own perception of things, we usually question it more than adapting it from somebody else. But to perceive something without prior knowledge is not validating to ourselves because we only little to nothing about something. For someone who has much prior knowledge and often takes a view of both sides of something, their perception is often validating, since it offers both sides to something and knowledge to back it up. The only real way to tell if something or someones viewpoint is deluded is if the majority rule it as deluded and incorrect. Also, thinly way to tell if something is true is by investigating it ourselves, however, the issue with that is that many people do not investigate, rather they just give a claim without a source.
The root of the question is on the nature of truth, and how figure out what is true. Scientific truth is easy to determine alone because the definition is scientific theories that were proven true. You can come up with a scientific theory and prove it true alone. It is easier with others but still valid if you come to a decision alone. Moral truths seem to have the most disagreement on. If you treat morality as Natural Law you will be safe because everyone already has the same idea of moral truths. If you make the truth subjective not objective you will have subjective truth and that will lead anarchy. The idea of human rights in that case instead of being objective will be subjective to each person. This was the principle behind slavery in America, they were less than human. In short if truth is different to each person, assuming they were seeing the same thing, there would be no reason to argue with some one because the truth would be subjective.
The human body can only perceive a minsicule fraction of all otherwise detectable frequencies. Perception is overrated. I hope many of us realize that this world is just as much (if not more) mental than it is physical. Despite this lack of possible experienced stimuli, perceptions can still be correct. For example, I’m not sure how would one could argue if something is hot or not because the concept of hot derives from its distance to our body temperature, and all humans have roughly equal body temperatures. Objective perception is a reality. How we personally and subjectively interpret this objective data is where arguments become possible.
When we get ideas into our heads a natural reaction is to want to share it with the people around us and get feedback. Even if a lot of people disagree with your idea or outlook on things you are gonna think you are right, but if you are given the chance to talk to someone about it, like in a group project, and share different outlooks on it then your ideas end up merged together which means that your idea maybe wasn't so perfect in the end like we had originally thought. No ones perceptions are ever the same and will always be different, it is just a matter on if you are able to cooperate with each other on the matter or not.
We never really know if our perception or another persons is right. No one is ever right but you have to see what is more logical than another perception. It all matters on the situation, timing, and position of the person, you have to always go with your own gut because if you don't trust your own perception then you wont be successful. Asking another persons perception might help you figure your owns out but you can't always depend on theirs more than yours. Sometimes our perception could be completely wrong but since its our own we might argue that it is the right perception and no other is right, that is where asking for couple perceptions on whatever your wanting is a more safe way of knowing whether you are on the right track or you are completely off.
we all have our own opinions and thoughts about everything that happens and believe in what we think, when we talk to other people about the matter we get there side of the problem and we can take two perspectives and form out a conclusion but some people will try to change the way you think and thats the problem with some people. So there is no way of knowing who is right or wrong.
I think that we know that our perception is right, however it may not be right to someone else. Everyone is raised differently and if we do something it may seem okay to us, but someone else will see it differently. If we try consulting with that same person about the same topic, chances are they will have different views on it. Instead of actually coming to a conclusion, we will inevitably reach polar opposites in the argument and never get them to see our point of view. I agree with Emily’s response because she said that “Ignorance is bliss.” To me that is true because if we do not consult with others, we won’t become zoned in on our part of the argument and disregard every point of the other side’s argument.
I did agree with one of the speakers when they claimed that ignorance is bliss, meaning that we are always making ‘right’ choices by our own standards, but that may not be the best way to make decisions. We need to take others’ opinions into account. One person may feel that swear words or drinking alcohol are not right, and if we care about those people sincerely, we should accommodate that- even if that is abnormal for us. The goal should be to avoid anything that comes between relationship with others. Whether certain actions are right or wrong is almost always subjective, and universal truths are few and far between. If we truly want to judge our own actions, they should be judged by what they produce and how they affect others.
No, because our perception of things isn't right all the time bc people have different opinions. Who you think you are might not be what others think of you. Your perception of things may not be accurate but it's real to you and it's reality to you.
Every person has their own perception of everything that is going on around them. Having your own ideas and opinions is a part of being an individual. Not every person is going to believe in the same things that you do because they are not seeing the world the way that you are. There might be some that have the same perception of things such as you do but with enough time and persuasion there is a way to make those close to you understand the things that you believe in. There was a quote said in class that ignorance is bliss and this is very true. Not only do those who done have a opinion or idea on an issue not care but they also do not get the amount of backlash that those who do share their opinions would. At the end of the day your perception is something that only you can understand.
The most simple way to put it is that everyone has their own perception. People view things differently and may not support the way another person perceives something. Like one of the speakers said there is a basis for which someone’s perception may be different from the others which is why they don’t see it the same way as the other. If we take religion as an example, people have different views on religion which can change their perception. Childhood can be another factor that changers people’s minds because they grow up with the beliefs that they stand by for the rest of their lives. No one can truly know if their views are right which is why people need to base their values off knowledge or reasonable support. Not everyone learns or is taught the same values, so we will never know if our perceptions are right.
I agree with what Emily said in her response; Perceptions are not always right because people have many different perceptions. I believe that people see the world differently. The world would be damaged and lost with the same perception. There would be no music, sports, politics, art..etc because there is none of that without artistic ability and no artistic ability is present when everyone has the same perception. Also, no person can gain knowledge without being intellectually challenged. Therefore, no perception is right, but instead the most correct perception are ones in which WE agree with. It is our own decision to choose which perceptions are right or wrong. Opinion is perception, and as Socrates would say "opinion is knowledge".
While we think what we see is correct because we believe we cannot mistake something as that . I believe that according to peoples backgrounds they can all see the same things and interpret them differently. Although the help from the other party to assure us that that neither of us is delusional would be great.
We all like to believe that we are always right. However this is not always the case. Even if we do consult with others they may not necessarily be correct either. That is why I agree with one of the presenters in class that stated that "ignorance is bliss". Some people like to surround themselves with "yes men" having there personal perception constantly validated by others. By doing so however they trap themselves in an eternal fallcacy never being able to supercede it because of their own ignorance. That is why it is important to get the facts straight and take into consideration the opinions of others who might dare to disagree with you. By doing so you might be able to get past all of the nonsense and piece together the truth and finally proclaim that you indeed are not deluded, but in fact right.
I believe one’s perception of something is based on how other people see it. I think it also depends on who someone looks up to. For example, if someone’s idol believes strongly in a certain opinion, then that person’s opinion of that matter may be influenced heavily by how their idol thinks. I don’t believe any one perception can be right because there are so many different views that can contradict each other and also are superior to others in certain ways. However, this does not mean certain views or perceptions aren’t stronger than others and more accepted. This makes it impossible to determine if your perception is “right” or socially accepted, because you will always need to consult others to fit in. I think whatever the majority believes in is the most socially accepted and therefore considered “right” by the masses but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will align with an individual’s ethics and morals. In order for an individual to have the right perception is up to that individual and what makes them feel the best about themselves, so long as it abides by actual laws made to protect people.
Our own perception is just that, our own. It’s not necessarily right or wrong, it’s just what might work for us and not necessarily for others. When we ask for others opinions sometimes our perception changes because we see their point of view and we might reconsider. Sometimes it is good to consult with others to step outside the box and see the bigger picture. When we do consult we have to be open minded and remember that not everyone thinks like we do.
I believe that everyone has their own perception on something just because its them. Everyone has a different perception on something maybe because of their background or what someone told you. Neither of these are wrong. Your perception may look bad or 'wrong' because of what they think on the situation. But their perception isn't correct either. It all comes down to the individuals beliefs and background.
You can never truly be sure if your precption is right but if you really get down to thinking like that then nothing will seem real. This is similar to a question I got in philosophy 101 where I had to write a 6 page essay on weather or not my hands were real. In that essay it came to down to me explaining that if I wasn’t real then what was the point of existence and that’s the same theory I apply to this situation. If what were are seeing is not real, what ther purpose could there be of that existence.
I believe that everyone has their own perception. Not everyone is going to think alike, even if it were consulted with others it does not guarantee being right but it does give other people the opportunity to hear different point of views and see the logic behind their thinking. It is good to hear other people's opinions, but most importantly is to hear your own perception on things.
Most of the times we can be sure that our perception of things is right because usually we just “go with our gut,” and it is often the right way. Moreover, most of the time it is just waste of time to consult with other because you are going to know already what their perception is. Even if we do consult with others, their perceptions will be similar to our since these people are usually our family members or friends. I think that we do not really have our own perception. In my view, our perception depends on the group of people that surrounds us. Our perception is based on what our parents and sometimes teachers have taught us. Furthermore, our perception relies on our friends' perceptions, and of course the social media. Therefore, even if we do consult with someone who’s perception is different from ours, we would not follow his advice, and we will never know if our perception is correct or not.
Perception is unique and is essentially ones take on the reality of the situation. Although most times ones perception is right because it is ones own take on the situation at hand, consulting with others can lead to an overall more clear perception for the group. Everyones perception is true to some aspect.
Our perspective on things are always going to be affect our decisions more than considering others. Our perspective is direct and personally, even though considering the perspective of others is helpful in decision making, we are most likely going to choose our own perspective because of the close connection we are going to have to our own perspective.
