Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Gestalt means what

    • A.

      Organized Part

    • B.

      Random Half

    • C.

      Clustered Sixteenth

    • D.

      Organized Whole

    Correct Answer
    D. Organized Whole
    Explanation
    Gestalt refers to the concept of perceiving and understanding objects or experiences as a whole, rather than as individual parts. It emphasizes the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In this context, "Organized Whole" accurately captures the essence of the term "Gestalt" as it highlights the concept of perceiving and comprehending things as organized and unified wholes.

    Which choice DOESN'T go with the tendency to perceive complete forms?

    • A.

      Sensory Analysis

    • B.

      Perceptual Constancy

    • C.

      Bottom-Up Processing

    • D.

      Top-Down Processing

    Correct Answer
    B. Perceptual Constancy
    Explanation
    Perceptual constancy refers to the ability to perceive objects as unchanging despite changes in sensory input. It allows us to recognize objects even when they are viewed from different angles or under different lighting conditions. This concept is related to perceiving complete forms because it helps us maintain a consistent perception of objects. On the other hand, sensory analysis, bottom-up processing, and top-down processing are all processes involved in perceiving complete forms. Therefore, perceptual constancy is the choice that doesn't go with the tendency to perceive complete forms.

    Gibson and Walk developed the visual cliff to test depth perception in what type of people?

    • A.

      Teens

    • B.

      Adults

    • C.

      Toddlers

    • D.

      Infants

    Correct Answer
    D. Infants
    Explanation
    Gibson and Walk developed the visual cliff to test depth perception in infants. The visual cliff is a test apparatus that creates an illusion of a drop-off, with a glass surface on one side and a solid surface on the other. Infants are placed on the glass surface and their reactions are observed to determine if they have depth perception. This experiment is specifically designed for infants because it aims to understand the development of depth perception at an early age.

    A Monocular Cue uses how many eyes?

    • A.

      Two

    • B.

      One

    • C.

      Four

    • D.

      Zero

    Correct Answer
    B. One
    Explanation
    A monocular cue is a depth cue that can be perceived with only one eye. This means that it does not require both eyes to perceive the depth or distance of an object. Therefore, the correct answer is "One" as a monocular cue uses only one eye to perceive depth.

    What is Similarity?

    • A.

      The grouping of items that look alike.

    • B.

      The grouping of items that look different.

    • C.

      The grouping of random items.

    • D.

      Pick me!

    Correct Answer
    A. The grouping of items that look alike.
    Explanation
    Similarity refers to the process of grouping items that have similar characteristics or features. In this context, it involves categorizing or organizing items based on their visual resemblance or likeness. This means that items that share common traits or appearances are grouped together, highlighting the concept of similarity.

    What is Convergence?

    • A.

      The more our eyes focus inward when we view an object, the nearer the object.

    • B.

      The more our eyes focus outward when we view an object, the farther an object.

    • C.

      The less our eyes focus inward when we view an object, the nearer the object.

    • D.

      The less our eyes focus outward when we view and object, the nearer an object.

    Correct Answer
    A. The more our eyes focus inward when we view an object, the nearer the object.
    Explanation
    Convergence refers to the inward movement of our eyes when we focus on an object. This allows our eyes to align and focus on the object, creating a single image. The more our eyes converge, the closer the object appears to us. Therefore, the statement "The more our eyes focus inward when we view an object, the nearer the object" accurately describes the concept of convergence.

    What is Relative Clarity?

    • A.

      Objects that appear clear are seen as farther away.

    • B.

      Objects that appear hazy are seen as closer.

    • C.

      Not relative clarity.

    • D.

      Objects that appear hazy are seen as farther away.

    Correct Answer
    D. Objects that appear hazy are seen as farther away.
    Explanation
    Relative clarity refers to the perception that objects that appear hazy are seen as farther away. This means that when an object appears less clear or blurry, our brain interprets it as being located at a greater distance. This is a visual cue that helps us estimate depth and distance in our surroundings.

    Extrasensory Perception

    • A.

      Perception inside the range of normal sensation.

    • B.

      Perception outside the range of normal sensation.

    • C.

      Pick me!

    • D.

      Perception using ordinary senses.

    Correct Answer
    B. Perception outside the range of normal sensation.
    Explanation
    The term "extrasensory perception" refers to the ability to perceive information outside the range of normal sensation. This means that individuals with extrasensory perception can gather information through means other than the five ordinary senses (sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell). They may be able to perceive things such as thoughts, emotions, or events that are not detectable through the normal sensory channels.
