A friend of mine asked me my definition of ‘perception‘ after she had concluded it to be a false reality.
I told her perception could either be true or false, but should not be a yardstick for measurement. it is an individual sight, opinion or understanding of a particular situation, person or people.
If two individuals, one biased and the other a straight forward persona were called to tell their insight about a particular issue, what do you think happens? The former will not tell the exact truth, while the latter will tell it just as it is. Hence perception could either be true or false but doesn’t change the real fact.
Peoples perception about situations and other people will always differ, but the fact remains unchanged even though they are unable to see it. It takes so much effort to recreate a person’s intuition because our brains are wired differently. Perception could be ‘true’ or ‘false’ but not the ‘fact’.
