Q2.PERCEPTION:Perception is the way sensory input is organized, defined, and perceived to reflect andunderstand the world. All perception requires impulses in the nervous system, which in turnresults from the sensory organs' physical or chemical stimulation. It is not the passive receptionof these signals but is formed by learning, memory, anticipation, and attention. The analysis ofsuch perceptual processes reveals that three groups of variables influence their functioning -the objects or events being perceived, the context in which perception occurs, and theperceiving person.Perception is the combination of 5 senses; touch, sight, taste smell and sound. It also includeswhat's referred to as perception, a group of senses involving the power to detect changes inbody positions and movements.In simple words, we will say that perception is that the act of seeing what's there to be seen.IMPORTANCE OF PERCEPTION:It's all about how we react to the facts. It is the mechanism through which an organism, throughthe sensory receptors, absorbs and interprets input from outside world. It is our sensory worldexperience around us and includes both identifying environmental stimuli and responding tothese stimuli. Via the perceptual method, we gather knowledge about the environmentalproperties and elements that are virtual to our survival.

All that we see or hear is notexactly the same as it really is. When we buy it, it's not because it's the best thing, butbecause we take it as the best thing.2.If people act on the basis of their perception, by considering their present perception ofthe world, we can predict their actions in changed circumstances. One individual mayview the facts in one way that may be different from the facts that another viewer hasseen.3.With the aid of perception, different people's needs can be defined, as their needs affectpeople's perception.4.Perception can be important because it provides more than objective output; it ingestsan insight and creates an altered perception enhanced by past experiences.FACTORS AFFECTING PERCEPTION:
Perception is the mechanism by which knowledge is collected, obtained, arranged andinterpreted from outside world to make it meaningful.This incorporation of relevant knowledge contributes to judgments and actions. A variety offactors work to shape perception, and often distort it. Such factors that reside in the perceiverwithin the perceived object or target, or in the sense of the situation in which the perception ismade.
