A friend asked me my definition of ‘perception’ after she concluded it is a false reality.
I told her perception could be true or false, but not be a yardstick for measuring fact. It is an individual’s opinion or understanding of a particular situation, person, people etc.
If two individuals, one biased and the other, straight forward are asked to relay their opinion 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. The former relays based on feelings while the latter, based on fact. Hence perception could either be true or false but doesn’t change the real fact.
Do you agree? What’s perception to you?
