Sense Perception Definitions "Perception by the senses rather than by the intellect." () "Perception by or based on stimulation of the senses." (Medical Dictionary) Sense perception has three steps: We perceive the world through our five senses. (Hearing, Sight, Smell, Touch, Taste) Our sense receptors are stimulated by sensory.

    Social perception, or the ability to identify and use social cues about people and relationships, is another important type of perception. How It Works The perceptual process is a sequence of steps that begins with the environment and leads to our perception of a stimulus and action in response to the stimulus.   The person who understands that our perception changes with our emotions knows that what we see is not a true, solid reality. What we see is distorted by the emotion that is running us at that moment. It makes sense that we try and gain control over our emotions if we are to have a chance at not being run by our lower primal instincts.

      The law of figure-ground captures the idea that when we perceive a visual field, some objects take a prominent role (the figures) while others recede into the background. For example, if you were getting a picture taken of yourself near a lake with beautiful hills and mountains behind you, then you would be the central figure of the photo, while the water, mountains, sky, and other scenery. Perceptual control theory (PCT) is a model of behavior based on the principles of negative feedback, but differing in important respects from engineering control s of PCT experiments have demonstrated that an organism controls neither its own behavior, nor external environmental variables, but rather its own perceptions of those variables.
