In class they proposed that perception is a way of regarding or understanding something, and it is based on experiences. They further defended that that two people could be in the same situation, and have different perceptions of the situation. In each case, both will be considered right because each one has their own perception that has been framed from their previous experience. Furthermore, they added that we need other people to learn what is right and everyone has their own belief and perspective. On the other hand, some may argue that we do not need anyone to tell us what is right because we can always go by our personal opinions and feelings. In my own view, I agree that as much as we may never admit to it, we actually need others to guide us and show us what is wrong or right. This is what occurs when a child is born, grows up and begins to understand their immediate environment. Children learn from the people they interact with and come to understand what is good or bad, and what is generally accepted in the society. Therefore, we grow up relying on what others tell us and while they may not always be right, we would be none the wiser because we do not know otherwise. Nevertheless, there are certain situations in which we do not necessarily need others to tell us what our perception should be. The principles that we develop from our upbringing mold our personalities and enable us to recognize signals that help to guide our opinions. For instance, if we are aware that by driving under the influence, we stand the chance of putting lives at risk then no one needs to spell it out how wrong such an action is. Ultimately, having the information we have learned and understanding the consequences of our actions guide our perceptions as well. Hence, it is best to combine what we learn from others with our experiences to help us make informed decisions about what is right, and even then we should accept that sometimes we may still end up being wrong.
I agree with you in taking others advice for what is right or wrong and learning from others. We do internalize what was taught to us through our environment. And I also agree with you on obvious situation as the one you pointed out of driving under the influence and that no one should tell us what our perception should be about that because we would definitely know why that would be a bad idea.
Well I believe that everyone has their own right to perceive things as they see fit. Although more often that not, many however will not agree on how you personally perceive things. For example I can see a kid playing in the rain minding his own business and I perceive as he or she is having fun; however the kids mother will perceive it as a bad thing get mad at him or her and tell them that it's bad to p[lay in the rain because he or she might sick. even though we the mother and myself have opposing perceptions of the situation we both right in our own way.
Thats exactly true, no matter what you think or how you got to conclude to your point of view we are ultimately right. Wether you think pepsi is better then coke, your right.
For the most part I agree with what was said in class such as that perceptions differ in many ways and that others are needed for us to decide what is right from wrong. For me perception is our way of seeing things and as we all know not everybody see's everything the same way. In my opinion our perception comes from how we were raised and is further developed through our experiences. When it comes to determining if our perception is right I feel it is based on the overall view of society. Most of the time if others agree that something is right people will follow suit without ever questioning it. Although when it comes to certain situations where there are many people on both sides of the argument it really comes down to looking at your own beliefs and deciding for yourself what is right.
In class, one presenter said that depending on situation and determine what there is no such things right and wrong. In my opinion our perception of things is not always accurate, especially when we are in emotionally situation. Appearance also can be deceptive, so people cannot be what they seem, a man looks very strong, but we don’t know what happens in his life, he might be not that strong when he faces a problem. First perception can affect our future perception and decisions. For example, when for a first time, someone has a bad experience with his/her neighbor, then maybe they will have problems for the future interaction. Even we do consult with others, we still cannot make decision if the things is right or wrong. So, we cannot judge people and take a solution only from first impression.
I agree that when a person s emotional there reactions/responses aren't always the best ones because they ted to react quickly without fully thinking of what was asked or confronted. Appearance can also be a factor on debating whether this person looks like a nice or bad guy, and honestly we tend to judge people right away whether it be how they look like, what they are wearing, their hairstyle and more, without really knowing who that person truly is. Just like there are many differences with like of style, there is differences in our way of thinking and our choices.
In class it was mention that there will always be a difference between perceptions due to the fact that one can have the same situation yet will be handling differently based on their own perception.
I believe that there is beauty in the way we handle things, this is because there are different norms that play out considering our different upbringings and cultures. The way we perceive things it pretty much sets the tone for our perception of views. One can be challenged in to changing the way we perceive issues if we pay attention to what society wants us to believe , yet if one can stand for what they believe in what is perceived then one is assured that they have used norms and culture believes to assured their believe system. There is no right or wrong since we take in to account that we are all allowed to have different perceptions.
I agree with what was said in class, like i mentioned in my response, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The hardships that one goes through in life and what they take from it will mold them to be who they are. After going through lifes' tough journeys, a person will learn how they cope with things and although it may be different than the way others cope through it, that does not mean their method is wrong. Through our methods of coping we will begin to see the cup as half full or half empty.
In class, they said there is nothing right or wrong, in my opinion,our brains can be easily deceived. With the technology today, human can produce artificial perceptions to trick out senses. Virtual reality is a good example that our brain can be manipulated under circumstances, if we decided to dive into it.
Consulting with other certainly helps us to confirm our beliefs and perceptions, but they could be deluded as well. Yes, we can be sure that our perception of things is right, by using critical thinking skills. We simply do not accept the perception we received about things, we let the perception go through a thinking process before generating a thought on things. Consult others about their perception might be a good thing to help us rethink the perception of certain things. We don’t necessarily have to believe our first impression or others perception about things, we need to process it. Thinking critically can train our thought process to improve our perception of things, so we can perceive things better and better next time.
No, we can never be too sure that anything we perceive is right. There are plenty of ideas out in the world to be accepted, refuted and perceived. Parenting can be used as an example, and more specifically , religious parenting. Religious parents raise their children with many ideas of God, the Bible and the basic principles of right and wrong. What one parent taught their child in one part of the world as a Buddhist can be hundreds of miles away from what (others), might think as being, 'right," as Christians. Religion itself can be one of the most argued subjects around the world and in present terms no one has the, 'right,' answer. The act of consulting others is a universal, and it is used to discuss and analyse the ideas of right and wrong. Only through consulting others can we ever find out if we are wrong. Many of the subjects and ideas being discussed currently still have no definite answers. What we do know, is that by consulting others can we validate our ideas to ourselves.
Our classmates have presented and proposed that our perception of things have build through our experiences since we are little. They also agree that there is nothing is right or wrong. Sometimes, we do need to learn from others that we are right or wrong. In addition, one had an example that in the same situation, but with two different people will have two differences ways to drive the solution out. People have their own belief and perception. Thus, sometimes they search for consulting from others to confirm if they are right or not. The other times, they just listen and ignore if they do not think in the same way.
In my opinion, I do agree with them that people have their own perception and believes which build up from their experiences. Everyone has set rules and values in his or her role in the society. His or her will be expected to behave in a certain way and live by a certain rules in order to live in harmony with others people. Family, religion, work, culture, country, school, etc,. have shaped that person's personalities, experiences, and perception. Whether you believe it or not, our brain already decided what is right and wrong for us. Consulting is just because we want to seek out for the empathy, for sharing the feelings. We do not know whether our perception is right or wrong. We do not sure whether the consulting from others people is wrong or right, neither. We just try to keep doing our things and our manner in the right ethics. So that we do not feel ashamed of, instead, we feel pride of what we are doing. Furthermore, once we see the success, we will know that we are right. If we fail, start to do it again and learn from our mistakes.
We all have our perceptions on how we visualize and want circumstances to be. Consulting with others for their personal advice is always helpful and could maybe help us see other perspectives that didn't cross our mind. But we couldn't really know which or whose perspective is the correct or best way. We are all giving a human right to think freely and to conclude our own ideas. Our own personal perception that makes us feel best should be the correct way. But we must keep in mind that if our actions and perceptions continuously put people in harm or negatively affects others, it might be obvious that one should consider changing their views as a decent human being will do.
I can agree with what my classmates had stated in class because i believe that a person can have their own perception of things an be right and at the same time when their are unsure they can consult others. We tend to ask others because we all have different ways of thinking, what may seem right to me, may be wrong to someone else. I think that their is obvious decisions one can make on their own without the necessity of asking others for example choosing whether or not vanilla is your favorite ice-cream or not. Perhaps a question that one can ask other people perception about would be deciding whether or not to move in to a rural area vs staying in the city.
They say, we sometimes need to reach out for other to validate our perceptions, that we sometimes need others to maybe agree or disagree, that it depends on the situation and that everyone has a different opinion. I say, I don’t think I have to consult anyone to know if whether or not I’m right or wrong, in fact, I think that everyone was there on perception and others may or may not agree but does not mean that he or others are right. If I do consult others, we might both be wrong or right. We both may be deluded. We will never know. I believe is a matter or self-conscious, self-thought, and self-determination. The answer will always be how you see the picture and I believe no one sees what you see.
I do believe in what you are saying when you say that ones perception is based off of their own beliefs. However, I have personally been put in situations where i thought i was most certain that i felt a certain way about something, until i spoke to someone who had a different point of view and they would tell me something that would make me feel slightly different because they had made me see a different point to it. People who have made a decision about how they feel about something based off of different information they have interpreted are okay in my book. I am not okay with however with the people that make a judgment or a decision about how something should be perceived by other without knowing fully the pros and cons to it. Once i know that a person is making an educated decision to feel a certain way, even if I may personally not agree with it, i definitely respect it because they have made an educated decisions that includes their morals, ethics and beliefs.
Our classmates said that every one can have a different perception, and there are not anything right or wrong. The perception blinds people to act in a bad manner. I say that it is partially true but adding to this ideas I believe society establishes rules and what is right or wrong. Also, at home parents teach their children how to behave and moral things. In my opinion it is very important because at this time people have lost the sense of doing right. Perception of wrong or right things start at home.
My classmates said that we can't really rely on others because we each have our perception of what is right and wrong and I can agree with that.I think that our perception of things or situation is right for us. I think there is no one right way to do something if you think it's right that it is. Consulting others does nothing because their opinion of right can be different from yours. People should do what Is right for them.
I can agree and see where the presenters are coming from, some people don't need to consult other people to know right from wrong but also everyone has their own option and their own perception of viewing things. Some people are considered selfish for thinking and only viewing their perspective which is ok because they are watching out for themselves and others are very considerate of everyone surrounding them. Everyone was raised differently so, I don't agree that it's the reason how we view things because as you get older you get to see and understand more than when you were a child, your perceptions change. So i believe that there is no way to know whether other peoples perception is true or not because at the end of the day you will go with what feels and is right on your part.
just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is our own sense of righteousness.
We ultimately only believe our own perception. reason being is anything outside of us is just external information which we pick and choose what to make into an internal question or fact. Our own perception is all we know, there is no one other that fulfills, changes, or takes away from it. For example, we hear ,read and see others perceptions everyday everywhere. On the streets holding signs, news anchors on tv, or anyone on our facebook feed. Yet, it ultimately stands for us to choose wether we choose to accept it as an answer to our internal questions or a fact (perception).
So to us, other peoples point of view is really nothing more than more information we either absorb , question or adopt as a fact. Just as anything else we see, we do the the same with the world around us, mostly when we were kids. We may see the sky and accept it as a fact that its blue, or we may ask our mother and accept her answer as a fact. Either of the two we had the choice to let it affect our perception. In the end wether we accept the earth is round or flat, wether President x or y is better, or even if coca cola is better then pepsi. We are right.
I agree with all three presenters because we do all have different perceptions on different views. I feel that is the beauty of all of us having a different views and opinions on topics, because if we didn't , that means everyone would think the same and make the same choices. I believe in "two heads are better than one" and the more different perceptions we hear, the more options and thinking you make. For example, I enjoy hearing others people perception on things because it makes my mind open up to ideas I wouldn't think about. When I ask for advice from other people, even if they are close friends or not, young or old, their perception gives you an inside how others think and can see why they responsed as they did. Even if I ask for their perception on things, it doesn't mean they are wrong or right answer because I still have a choice to believe the person perception if I want to or not. By hearing other perceptions, one can decide on their own if they want to agree with them or disagree because not everything agrees with someone, and when people do agree they have found a common ground to their own perceptions. People form groups by their perceptions on things and others against that perception, because we are bigger in numbers and if the group feels strongly about their perception they would do whatever it takes to get their views across to the opposition group. I believe in "beauty is in the eye of the beholder " because beauty is whatever you want it to and others may not see the beauty but it is there. Therefore, our perceptions build our own and others creativity to new ideas and old ideas but we all have a choice to follow them or stick with our own perception.
Just listening to everyone speak in front of every one , and hearing everyone's opinion it is true ,that everyone has their view , their judgement towards other. Like it is said in other journals we all have different views and from opinion everyone views is just different . Just listening and hear. You'll hear everyone view. Yes everyone is raised differntly and some people may not like what he or she has to say but will all have an opinion and those. Opinions help each other out . Some people may not be happy but those small critziced help ones move forward with life.
I agree with my classmates. I believe that there is never going to be something that has the same views and values. Everyone is going to see and feel something different about a certain thing. I know that even when we look at ourselves in the mirror, our perception of ourselves is different than what people see. I don't necessarily think that you always have to consult with others to be accepted in today's society.
In class there had been a few different opinions about what may be perceived as right or wrong. For this i say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Depending on what is being asked, whether it may be arithmetic or an opinion on the latest trend, we cannot be sure that there is only one right answer. Although a proper way to get the answer “four” may be ‘two plus two’, we cannot forget that ‘three plus one’ is also four as well as many other solutions. This can be applied to many things in life because there is no one way that is correct. Depending on how we were brought up we may, out of habit, take the longer way to do something to ensure that it is being done right, however that does not mean that the person who had the same outcome did it wrong because they did it in less steps. The perception one holds is based off of the things they have been through in life and it has molded their personality. A single person may have been taught to look at the glass as half full while others choose to look at is as half empty. In conclusion, as long as the outcome is the same, the process you take to get it does not matter. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and one is noone to judge the beauty others see beautiful.
