Perception (Jyosilpsycho-hub)


Perception and sensation are two distinguish processes but they are very closely related. Perception consists of sensations and their meanings. It is a combination of many kinds of sensations. Their meanings are known through images of past experiences. Suppose, you perceive a mango by combining the sensations of its taste, smell, touch, colour, shape, size, etc. into a unity. You refer them to an object, which occupies a portion of space in the external world, and recall its name. You may perceive some its other qualities, e.g., smell, taste, touch, etc. You combine these sensation and images into a unity. Thus, Perception is a combining activity. It gives the knowledge of meaningful objects. In this section you will be able to get multiple choice question related to perception.
