Our perspective is the way we perceive anything in life, that is where the word came from. Every individual has his or her own unique perspective, some of us might share similarity with others more than some in certain aspects, but never identical.
When it comes to creating perspectives, every person gathers their own seemly thoughts from the mass and create its own exclusive one. Past experiences are the key element, it plays a big role by shaping our perspective till it becomes a whole. No one shares his or her experiences with any person, not even family member, that is why our perspective is remarkably unique.
Other individuals’ perspective might oppose with ours, but that does not mean our vision is right or their as well. There is no right or wrong standpoint in life just different, and we all have to respect the opposing, which we extremely lack in this modern era.
Even though the presentations were shorter than the ones we had last weeks, the information was fully researched and well explained. The topic perception appeals in all lives, but as Carlos said, “We have different point of views based on culture, experiences, and beliefs,” and also he brought up the example of two people that have different opinions and because of their perspective one says it can happen and the other says it’s challenging. I 100% agree with the point Carlos claimed, but not because his sentences are true in word, but because I personally have been into the situations which I wanted to express my beliefs only because I believed it’s a right thing. About other presenters, I also agree with their point of view. Back to Emily when she said, “people have different perspectives on the same artwork,” which pretty much expresses the same idea others were talking about.
Our perception of things can never be classified as right or wrong, as everyone will perceive different things. This is why we as a species agree to disagree. Each individuals perception is what they themselves witness with their eyes. Their experience through life shapes what they perceive, and in their eyes their perception is "right." While they are not necessarily right to think that, which is quite ironic in itself, they are not wrong either. We can never fully comprehend what another person thinks, where their values lie, what their beliefs are, and what their experience has taught them. Each individual SHOULD in fact have varying perspectives because in order for people to see eye to eye when the time comes to consult with others, they have to overcome their differences, forming a stronger bond. You cannot live your life strictly by what you truly believe in and what you truly want to do, because society will now allow it. We all make sacrifices to understand each other and respect each other, and while it is obvious that our perspectives differ, we learn to work with those differences. The point being is that we cannot really know if what we perceive is the truth, but what we can do is believe that it is. Every risk a person takes, they are never 100% sure if what they perceived will go as planned, which is why it is called a risk. However, we trust our gut and instinct and believe that it will end up working out.
I would have to agree with my classmates point of views as they too said that each individuals perspective is different, and we all are taught different rights and wrongs and that is how we perceive life. What we individually perceive should not be bound by the words "right" or "wrong" as each and every person has their own rights and wrongs that they believe in.
In the words of one of the presenters, evidence is needed for absolute truth.
Perception is very subjective, therefore, it has little to do with whether someone is right or wrong.
Consulting others greatly relies on who those people are. As another presenter pointed out, we turn mostly to people we are close to for validation. We sometimes do this, knowing deep down inside that we feel wrong about something, but we'd rather stay in denial, and use the bias of friends and/or family to validate us and not hurt our ego.
Delusions we hold can be brought to our awareness by consulting others who can be as little bias as possible, whether that be schoolmates, coworkers or even in online forums, where people are likely to be brutally honest.
There is no way to know if our perception is right, because it is not possible. We can only hope to bounce ideas off one another to see our own perception from angles we otherwise would not have seen. Compassion is the best way to come to a mutual understanding as to why someone sees through the lens that they do. It’s not about what the perception is, it’s about the “why.”
Everything is subjective even aspects of life that we do consider objective since those objectives are based on general consensus. There is no way of being certain of whether ones perception of something is right or wrong. It is hard to have a strong perception of something and be able to justify it entirely, it can be easily altered by external influences. However it is also conflicting to build your own perception based off of what others may say.
To me whenever I have a big decision to make i like to consult a few people to hear their opinions. Although no single one of those opinions would finalize my decision, I will consider each of them collectively and will make the decision myself.
I would have to agree with my fellow classmates about this topic.The soul reason to seek an outside opinion about something is to be certain that whatever you are doing is not morally wrong or socially unacceptable. Discovering other people's perceptions about something can help you form your own. However this does not guarantee that your perception is 100% right.
Everyone has a different point of view in life. Anybody can be right or wrong in any situation. The presentations that were given in class were short and simple. Most people can be the same, as in having the same personality. In this society people can always pretend to be somebody they are not. They see others having the same thought and want to be like them even though inside they have a completely different mind set.
At times it is interesting to understand how someone else's mind works. For example, whenever my friends and I are dealing with a problem we like to take each others advices and see what we can do to overcome the problem. At the end either I will go with my own gut feeling or their guidance. Sometimes receiving others advice is helpful at the end. There are also people that always think they are right for any situation. People who go through life like that will struggle because they are not always correct, they have to listen to other peoples opinions too.
• In the world that we live in, it is simply inevitable that an individual will hear the opinions and perspectives that others have towards their beliefs. Each person’s values have in some shape or form been impacted by the viewpoints that others have towards those ideals, and we have no way of knowing if our opinions or perceptions about certain things are correct or incorrect. There are specific topics that are purely opinion based, such as cases of who to vote for as President or simply what is the best option to eat at dinner for a night out with a group of friends. In these types of cases, each person may have a different opinion over which is the best option to go with, but there is never a defined correct answer because there will always be others who disagree with your perspective. The only place where these individuals are “right or wrong” is in their own minds and opinions. That being said, consulting other people is the most effective technique one may use in order to get the best idea over what is the most accurate perception that they could have over a topic. If you feel conflicted over what to believe or think, consulting a friend, parent, or teacher may be a great way to shape out your thoughts, because hearing another viewpoint may open your mind up to ideas that you previously were not exposed to or open to hearing out. It is my personal belief that consulting others is a fantastic option to help an individual solidify or change their beliefs that something is correct in his or her mind. Although hearing others out is useful, you should not always need to consult others for every single personal debate that you have, and I agree with my classmate Karmen’s statement in her presentation, where she stated that it is truly up to each individual to decide whether or not the help of others is needed in coming to a conclusion about something. In the end, you have no way of knowing if anyone is actually right, or if we’re all deluded with our perceptions, but it is important to take the opinions of others with a “grain of salt” and use their advice to help you understand the workings of the world and your mind better.
The prompt asks whether we can be sure if our perception of things is correct, without consulting others, and if we do, how do we know whether it is true or if we are both deluded. I do not think there is a “correct” perception of the world. There is no one right way to look at things. Karmen said, “I feel like coming to a conclusion on my own can cause me to make biased decisions due to all the personal experiences, opinions, and morals I have built up with time…”. While that might be true, that is exactly what everyone else is doing as well, basing their current judgement on their past experiences and past experiences of those around them. Perception is a completely personal experience that differs by the individual. I believe we should take into consideration other people’s perceptions to help us form ours, it is very easy to form an opinion by yourself but if you bring others in it opens the topic to discussion and if you can come to an agreed understanding I think that is as close as you can get to the “truth”. We do have a personal prejudice when it comes to perception, but that is okay because that is what makes you an individual, your own opinion. We cannot factually know whose perception is true because perception is personal truth, not fact. My perception is correct until someone proves me wrong.
Perception is a state of being, one that is expressed differently by every single person. So by asking if we can ever be sure that our perception is right, even without consulting anyone else is a 50/50 case. As one of my classmates said in class, her experiences and the experiences that other people have had is different, by having different experiences your perspective of things is also different. This doesn't mean that, what one person thinks is wrong, but by asking someone else for their perception of a certain matter it will definitely always be helpful. If you consult with someone and they have a different view on what you thought then that helps you think more profoundly about your issue or thought. It opens your eyes to maybe a possibility that you never thought or couldn't see until someone else brings it up. Now if the person does agree with you, then that could tell you that you may be right to think what you're thinking. Ultimately it's your own perception that will make the final call to whatever you are doing, but I believe that you would have to look at what is ethically right as well, to try to figure out who's "right".
Upon researching the topic for my presentation, I have become moderately obsessed with solipsism. The theory that one's own mind is all that can be proven really gives me sort of a reckless perspective. If no one else's consciousness is a factor, then their opinions do not matter. Judgement fades into meaningless whispers that do not extend to any rational idea worth listening. Except for my Mom's. It's almost a depressing thought to be alone if you choose to actually delve into this theory and let it control your actions. For my own mental sake, I won't take this theory to heart, but it is fun to think about.
Every person has their own ideas on what is right or wrong as everyone thinks and sees every situation differently. If one person agrees with something, the other person doesn't necessarily have to agree with it. In my opinion, it has to do with what a person went through in life and what they experienced, as experiences will shape your way of thinking. As every person has their own ways of thinking, I believe that you cant label things as right or wrong, there is no right or wrong. I agree with my classmate that It is your own decision if you need other people in order to come to a conclusion and that by asking other peoples opinions you will become more open-minded as others might bring up points which you haven't thought about yet. This can change your opinion on certain things but eventually, it is all about what YOU as a person believe is right. When I have to make a big decision, I tend to ask people that are close to me for their opinion, but in the end, I always do whatever feels right for me. Nevertheless, we are all just humans on this planet and no one really has the exact right answer to things.
Perception is determined by your way of life. Someone who grew up in the tropical rain forest in Brazil has a different perception to someone who grew up in the deserts of Arabia. I agree with what Carlos said. He claimed that we all have different point of views based on our culture, experiences, and beliefs. What is considered right to one person can be considered wrong for another. For example, when I need advice on something, I ask my mother, who has lived many years and experienced things that I have yet to live through, but I also ask someone closer to my age for advice because they see the world a little closer to how I see it. Both offer different and unique ideas and perspectives because they both have different perception of reality. In a way, our perception are both right and wrong. It is right because it is your perspective and your truth, but it is also wrong because there is so much more that you may not know or consider. When we consult others, it is not a question of whether we are both deluded, but rather finding balance.
We all tend to have different perceptions, that can be because of our age, and lifestyles. But one thing is guaranteed that our perception can't always be right. Even if consulting others, the perception probably will be much stronger than it was because it brought the best out of two minds. We can not know if perceptions of others is right because, you might have your own perception but, you stand behind it and you think it's right. There is no way to know what's right what's wrong.
Perception is reality. Our perception, however, is not always the whole picture. We have a specific point of view in any and every subject. There are many factors that contribute to our perception among these are our environment and our past experiences. Thus, it is nearly impossible to be neutral in any one thing. It is very important that we consult others to reach the truth of reality. Sometimes our perception may be very alike with only few disagreements, other times we may be completely opposed in the way we view a certain subject. For example, in a combat situation, different things affect different people in different ways. What may seem like an obstacle that is unbearable may push a person to exert their will and not back down, to another it may make them fold under the pressure. These 2 people see the things very differently, one as a challenge and the other as a problem. It is ultimately up to the one person to choose how to see a specific thing, our perception is malleable it can change according to how our beliefs change. In conclusion, it almost impossible to derive truth from merely one account of perception, we must always take other points of view into our own account.
I believe we were all given our personal perception of life because it defines as a person. I don't think it's easy to say that our perception is always right because then that would mean we are closed minded. I believe we should be open to another person's point of view. When doing that we expend both our perception and see or analysis something great. The way we live our lives and the experiences we have had, play a huge role in our perception. For example, if something negative happens to us we tend to view it negatively always. The same if something positive happened. If we live our lives afraid of everything our perception will be negative and closed minded. However, if we open up our minds, are negatives will become something positive.
When we consult others for their perception, one of two things happen. We disagree or we try to understand them and that changes our perception. Most of the time we ask for another person perception to feel some type of security. To find out whether we are right or whether we might be wrong and how we are wrong. Perception is a huge part of who we are. We should be open with the way we see life.
people's perceptions come from the experiences that they had in their lives. Everyone views the world in a different way and everyone might have a different perception when it comes to something like agreeing on a subject. I agree with Zoya when she said "everyone has different cards to bring to the table," because everyone has a different way of thinking and you cannot say she is wrong because she said something else. Maybe she thinks about this subject in a different way and maybe she has good examples that she can use to prove that actually her perception of this subject is true. I also agree with her when she said that if one stays in a little circle where she only takes to her friends, she will never find someone who would go against her perception and in my opinion that is true. One should talk to people with different perception of life in order to be open minded and sometimes even accept the fact that their perception is not right and that she has to try harder to understand the subject.
Our perception of things is unique as ourselves. Everyone may see the same object, topic, or problem but how we look at it is entirely different. We perceive things that are right to our own eyes and also things that are wrong, but that doesn't make it the truth. As one of the presenters said, obtaining evidence and having factual explanations makes the person right since it is the truth with actual support. Having the right to our own opinions doesn't make our statement the "right" statement. There are reasons for why we think this and that as there is evidence to prove why this is true and that is not. The presenters also stated that consulting others is helpful and that we should be open-minded to what others have to say. I support the idea that we should always be open to others' point of view to not be bias all the time. When we consult others, it is important to keep in mind that they too are expressing an opinion unless there is factual evidence involved. Our perception of things does not make us right nor say others are wrong. There are no right and wrong answers when it comes to opinions. What we perceive ourselves may distract us from the truth and the truth is always right.
Perception is subjective, and people will always perceive the same situations differently. As all three of my classmates said, it is good to consult others about their own perception, but is not necessary to come to your own conclusion. It also matters who it is that you choose to consult with. If you only speak to others that share similar perceptions with you, you will never get the full scope of human experience. On the other hand, if you converse with people who hold a wide variety of perceptions, you will see that everyone sees life differently and that there is no true universal answer to who's right or wrong; whatever you perceive is correct. Do not rely on others to validate or invalidate your opinions. Everybody experiences things differently, and it is up to you to create perceptions that are true to you.
Perception is the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through our senses. Although we may perceive things to be a certain way doesn’t necessarily mean that we are right. We may see things in different tones or even hear sound waves differently such as how someone might enjoy certain songs and some people don’t. Without consulting people there is no way of knowing we are right, but we are confident from our experiences that what we perceive is correct. On the other hand, there is no way of knowing whether the person we consult with is right. For example, if we were to ask someone their opinion about a painting they might process it differently. They might enjoy the contrast of the colors or even the vibe they get from merely looking at the picture but there would be no right or wrong answer. Although perception may be defined the same for everyone it doesn’t mean that everyone shares the same perception.
People’s perception of how we see the world and how we differentiate right from wrong is often at times impacted by those around us depending on the situation and on who we ask. For instance, if you were to ask your parent and a friend advice on relationships both would give you different answers but who is to say which person is right and which one is wrong, and often at times there is no right or right answers and it is up to use to figure out the answer based upon the decisions that we make in our lives depending on how we view the world.
We can never truly be certain if we are right, instead only knowing that we are right by our own standards. Often many of our biases and preconceived notions affect the way we react to reality and later how we perceive our actions. We consult with people who hold similar perceptions, and they help to forge the viewpoint from which we see the world. While we may view certain actions as normal and not offensive, others outside of our viewpoint may have the opposite opinion. For instance, a simple action like asking for salt to improve flavor in a meal, while not a taboo in the United States, can be offensive in culinary cultures such as France and Italy. These differences in viewpoints may cause a certain group to view another’s viewpoint as delusional and vice versa. However, just because one group views another as delusional, it doesn’t mean that that group is delusional. There is no unipolar power which dictates what viewpoints are correct or false rather it is the various groups that dictate which is correct and false. However, when it comes to personal matters I agree with Karmen’s assertion that we can reach the truth without consulting others when it comes to ourselves. While we may have biases of the world and groups around us, we can always know what is right or wrong by our own standards. Though our standards can be subjective to a broader population, they are correct by us, and it is how we navigate the world. Ultimately, No one is without bias and the line between right or wrong is dictated by different groups and the viewpoints they hold.
The definition of perception, according to Wikipedia, is "the organization, identification, and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the presented information, or the environment." I think this is a good definition, because it allows for a clearer response to this question. If one's perception of the world includes not only their observation of the world through the use of their senses, but also their interpretation and organization of those observations, then it is obvious that one's perception is an entirely subjective thing. For example, if both an asian teen, who lives in an affluent area, and a black teen, who lives in an impoverished area, see a police officer approaching, they will both observe the same police officer through the use of their senses (sight, in this case). However, if we consider their perceptions (how they interpret and organize what the police officer means in their reality) it is highly likely that they have perceived two different things. The Asian teen might see a trustworthy figure who upholds the law and maintains order in society, whereas the black teen might see a threatening figure who might cause him unnecessary suffering. To answer the question, I think what is most interesting about consulting with other people about their perceptions is in understanding how and why people interpret the same things differently. It is only through the free expression of speech in dialogue that allows us to gain perspective of the world and become wiser.
We cannot ever be sure that our perception is right without consulting other people because we rely on other people to know more than us. We rely on other people in our everyday lives. For example, some people do not know how to tell the weather for the next day. Thus, we look at the weather online or on the TV for the weatherman to tell us whether it is going to rain or sun. We automatically assume the person is right because we assume that they know more than us in that subject. Also, we grow up learning from our parents or whoever what we should know, and that it should always be considered right. If we grow up knowing different information than other people, then of course people will have different perceptions of what is right to them. We trust that our parents taught us the correct information, so we always believe that whatever they told us is true. Basically, people conform to the idea that whoever has more people on their side or is smarter, they are the ones that have a higher chance of being correct. Overall, if the majority of people's perceptions of things are right, then other people will join in and believe it is true, due to the amount of people that trust that it is right as well.
We don't have to consult with others to know that what we perceive to be true isn't always the truth. If we do consult with others, we will also not know whether their perception is the total truth. Your perception about others' perceptions might not even be real. You take actions based on your beliefs, or in this case, your perception of reality. Every person's perspective of reality is different, meaning no one will ever fully understand another one's experience. It is what you believe is the truth versus someone else's belief. That doesn't mean you are right and they are wrong. There is no right or wrong. When it comes to the law, the only thing that can be taken into serious consideration is raw evidence. Going off of my classmates' presentations, this evidence can't be based off of anyone's morals, but by reality itself - the sole truth. But then again, who knows what's real and what's not? We get to decide who and what is real. We decide whether or not to seek people for advice, and whether or not to take the advice.
I agree with my classmates about how there is many different ways to perceive things and that each one is right. To elaborate on their opinion, because we have so many opinions and perceptions to life, politics, and other complex situations, we will never have the "right" way to look at things.
We can gather up research and see many personal stories and essays with the objective of finding the "right" perspective. And hypothetically speaking, let's say we succeed with flying colors. Resulting in creating the person with the ultimate perspective, an ubermensch if you will. No one will collectively and unanimously agree on the perspective, even if it is right. Therefore creating doubt in society.
We do not truly know of who's opinion is right, even if it is front of our face. That is what humans need to be human. To become irrational and doubtful of ourselves.
Every individual has its own perception of things and no one can ever be sure that their own vision. Consulting with others can help to improve the perception, however, it should not be influenced. As we grow, our perception improves, educating ourselves changes the way we look into life/world. Life changing events sharpe our world views. We can not rely on others advance because no one will ever know or understand the things we go through in our life and the advice they give might be good for them but not for us.
Perception; a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression. Your perception of objects will always be right from your point of view. The way your mind leads you into a direction guides you to have different viewing on things. It’s when you share your perception with others is when you really see things different. Yet it is not to say whether who is right, or who is wrong. At the end you will see what you want to, and believe only what appeals to you best. Perception is key. Understanding that you have different views from others, but having the open mindedness to see what others do gives you the ultimate decision of your perception.
Perception is two-fold: the act of sensing, and the act of translating what has been sensed into words or acts, because without the second part of cognition, you have no mind at work discerning subtle distinctions. What you perceive to be true and what is actually true aren’t always the same. In fact, those two things can be so far removed from each other, you might wonder how you ever thought what you thought in the first place. Your perceptions define your reality, and your behavior is based on what you believe to be real. Today is a reminder that what you think is true may just be a alternate reality that you made up.
I believe that our perception of things are mostly inaccurate because as human beings, our first perception of something affects our later perceptions and decisions. For example, when experiencing a negative situation like being attacked by a pit-bull, naturally our perception would later gravitate to them being dangerous. In the other hand, pit-bull owners wouldn’t fear their dog because they might have not had the same experience. Just like my classmate stated, with everyone having a different human experience, perception is dependent on those experiences. When consulting with others, they too see the world and perceive it differently because of their past experiences. Depending who we are speaking to, that would also alter our decision. If we lack knowledge on the subject and the other person have better knowledge and past experience with that, we will we most likely validate their opinion. We all live in the same planet but we reside within our own metal worlds. This is one of the reasons why it is difficult to comprehend ideas and circumstances we are generally not used to. It is important to always be open minded and not stubborn to other people’s perspectives. It is helpful and beneficial in your life being open minded as well as taking advice from people who talk about their experience so you can use it to formulate a conclusion to your problem.
Our perception to us will always be right due to it being all we know. Our perception is based on our beliefs and what we believe to be right and wrong. Our perception on things can be completely different from another individuals due to what we have experienced and what we grew up with. That is why some people have a negative view on the world, and others have a positive view on the world. There is no way of knowing whether your own or someone else's perception is deluded because perception is based on the individual.
Perception is the process of becoming aware of something through our senses, so going off of this simple and clear definition, it is clear that every perception is different but that doesn't have to mean it is wrong or right. One person and their favorite scent might be the worst thing another person has ever smelled. Neither can say who is wrong or right because perception is personal, perception is also neither true nor false. Perception can be considered like that of opinions, everyone has them but just because everyone has one doesn't mean it is wrong, right, true, or false. Perception can also be defined as "a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression." So once again, going off of a definition, how can we say that our perception and how we see things is right over that of another?
Listening to the three students who presented, I realized that all of them had almost the same outlook on this situation. The first girl who spoke to us had a good point when she said that others' opinions help her come up with smarter ones. I see this as a way to improve yourself. If one's opinion isn't the best then they should admit to it and just listen to what others have to say. She said that, yes it is possible to come down to the correct conclusion without consulting others, but if you do speak to others about your opinion, it makes what you have to say that much more solid. The second girl who presented said that without consulting others, one might not have true or valid thoughts. Everyone has different thoughts so consulting others will give someone different perspectives. Having seen different perspectives, one can give a much better argument about a topic, rather than being bias to one side. The third girl who presented mentioned how although we are sure of our opinion, hearing another side of it can possibly change our mind. Also, even if there are different perspectives, that does not mean that any of them have to be right. Having heard what all three student had to say, I came to think that consulting others doesn't exactly make your opinion correct, but it gives you more solid information and you can use it for a better argument. Not only that but, it can also change your mind and you can see the situation from more than one angle.
Can we ever be sure that our perception of things is right – without consulting other people? If we do consult others, how are we to know whether theirs is true or if we’re both deluded?
We can never be 100 percent certain that our perception of things is correct. We go off of what we know and have learned as a basis. We need to consult others to have supporting or differing opinions on many topics. Without this we would never know if we are correct or flawed. At the same time we can never know if another person is 100 percent correct in their view also. Because of this, we choose to believe and percieve things from the way we are taught and the way we have experienced things. This puts us in a familiar zone and helps us believe we are correct. After all we may not find out if we are 100 percent correct or not in terms of perception. We choose to believe what we know.
