In this paper, you will find the answer to the phenomena of perception and attention. “Attention is the process of concentrating on specific objects of the environment or on certain thoughts or activities” (Goldstein, 2011). Selective hearing is the exclusion of other features of the environment where limited hearing is in capacity and timing. There are a few theories of attention such as the Broadbent’s filter model, which we will be discuss in this paper. “Perception is the process of recognizing, organizing, and interpreting information from senses” (Goldstein, 2011). Perception is not an exact copy and can be based on an experience
This topic is specifically interesting because I want to do a research on how human mind perceives things as it happens, and the kinds of role that perceptions play in human mind. Perception of things cannot be true at all the time. It might be illusional. Perception of a certain element/event of life is a natural cause. It is an instantaneous action inside the brain’s functional parts. Consequently, it gives awareness or consciousness to the mind. The topic is specifically relevant today because perception is a natural cause, it cannot be evaluated to its full potential. There are always flaw in decoding perception of a human mind. The significance of this topic is to inform people about direct and indirect form of perception. Visual perception is a learning process which can be modified at particular instant of time.

Perception: the way sensory information is processed, organized, interpreted, and consciously experienced (Psychology, p. 151, 2016)
Have you ever wondered how someone could see things the way they do? A very good amount of people such as Phycologists say that being able to see another person’s perspective is a very good skill. Not only are you able to see their perspective on how they view things, but you really engage and make it to seem as if you were them.
A person’s thoughts, feelings, emotion, and beliefs often shape ones decision-making process. Other components, including perception, memory, introspection, and reasoning also assist in the formation of opinions, shape our knowledge, and transform an individual’s viewpoint (Feldman, 2003, p. 3). Perception is how one sees the world around them, the sights, sounds, smells, and other senses creates an understanding of the external environment creating a mental image and often places an attachment to it.
Although the little girl in this picture is very cute, I did make some observations right off the bat. The first three things that I observe in this picture is that the little girls finger is in her nose, it looks like an older type of picture, and it seems that she is getting a professional picture taken. Her finger in her nose demonstrates that she is a young child and she is most likely trying to be funny or she is getting bored with sitting there. She looks like she is about kindergarten age so it does not seem untypical for her finger to be in her nose. I notice it seems to be an older picture. Things that make me think this is even though it is in color it is in a shade of pink. When I say this, I mean that there isn't much difference
Jim is using a personal construct, or mental yardstick, to measure his intelligence and responsibility when he is discussing how he is performing in school (Wood, 2012). He compares himself to his father by claiming his father is brilliant and did not have any trouble in school versus himself who is struggling to pull C’s. Jim feels that no matter how hard he tries he will never be an A student because he is using a self-servicing bias that college is more difficult than when his father went to college and he has no control of the difficulty (Wood, 2012). Jim is attributing his grades to external forces, such as more difficult material, and believes that no matter how much studying he will not
This discussion is all about perception and how we look at things. Everyday we use our senses to improve our ability to see, hear, and become aware of something either good or bad. You can also use perception as a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something as well. During the watching of this video, there are some key points your wanting to know and understand.
Perception has a few definitions; the most frequently used definition is what we become aware of through our senses. However, perception is not just what our senses tell us, it is our reaction to the feelings we sense. Perception just happens; it is something we cannot control. The mind tells us how we feel before we even realize what is happening.
Our perception, or the way we interpret neutral sensory stimuli, can have a drastic effect on how see things. Dunning and Balcetis (2013) give many examples of this, such as a perceiver’s desire predicting what they interpret from an ambiguous stimulus, or participants estimating desirable objects closer than undesirable objects. This idea has important implications for the way we interact with other people. The way these participants arrived at their conclusions is an example of an unconscious process. A conscious process is one that is slow and effortful, but gives us more power to make accurate decisions. An unconscious process
while your trying to listen to your friends tell a story. So now you have to separate the information and focus on the one piece of important information, your friends story. But how does someone accomplish such a thing? Well they need to focus solely on one aspect of their surroundings and push the other noises aside. Cherry (2014) states that they are many different types of selective attention, but the one we will focus on is selective auditory attention, which is the ability to listen for one conversation without taking in the noises around, like demonstrated above. This ability is not something that people focus on daily, but it affects the lives of many and does so silently (Cherry, 2014). Without this ability there can be a lot of tension
Selection process of perception begins when one or more of your senses are stimulated, rather than pay attention to all the stimuli you engage in selection, the process in which your mind and body help you choose certain stimuli to attend to. (109 Floyd)
When your baby could talk, you may likely having similar arguing about everything you and she see because adults and babies brains are very different in ways to interpret images.
Before one makes knowledge their own, they have already subconsciously chosen what they will retain. The Principle of Selection is what we know through observation. The Principle of Selection serves as a filter before the knowledge observed is put into words, written or
