We need to understand how our perceptions work if we are to change our behaviour. Perceptions act as a filter based on our experiences and are then used to interpret our thoughts on what we see, hear and feel through the conscious.
Our perceptions will have an impact on our values, feelings and beliefs, but as we continue to subject ourselves to the different emotional and psychological elements that change how we see our realities, those realities will change over time.
I believe individually, we will begin to interpret what we see through our many experiences and from those experiences we will draw on our own perceptions. We cannot make others believe what we believe, just as they cannot make us believe what they believe.
Because our own view and interpretation on the world is different, our character traits will also be different. Behaviour is usually defined according to how we conduct ourselves.
This is why I believe it’s important to understand our perceptions and how those perceptions fit into our lives and into the lives of other people.
