Module 2 Discussion: Perception and Mindset By Gabriel A. Godart 2010-04-HLS-355-OL009 Thomas Edison State College. 1 st Principle : We tend to perceive what we expect to perceive. (Heuer, 1999) Much of human perception is based not on information flowing into the brain from the outside world but what the brain, based on previous experiences, expects to happen next. (Sandra Blakeslee, n.d.) Two examples of this principle are: Perception of authority and opposite. (use undercover boss as example, CBS) In A Feeling for the Organism: the Life and Work of Barbara McClintock, McClintock would never trust an associate to check her visual instruments to see what was happening in her experiments, that instead she always did this work herself. Why? Because her expectations, based on her own creative knowledge of genetics, meant that she could see developments that an associate with less knowledge and creativity might miss. (Evelyn Fox Keller, 1983) 2 nd Principle : Mind-sets tend to be quick to form but resistant to change. (Heuer, 1999)
