    Perception is not the same as

    • A.

      Seeing

    • B.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. All of the above
    Explanation
    The answer "all of the above" is correct because perception is not limited to just seeing. Perception involves the interpretation and understanding of sensory information from all the senses, including sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. It is a complex process that involves the brain's processing and integration of sensory inputs to create our perception of the world around us. Therefore, perception encompasses more than just seeing and includes all the senses.

    Perception and Communication are

    • A.

      Reciprocal

    • B.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. All of the above
    Explanation
    Perception and communication are reciprocal because they both influence and affect each other. Our perception of a situation or person can greatly impact how we communicate with them, and our communication can also shape our perception. Additionally, perception and communication are interconnected as effective communication relies on accurately perceiving and interpreting the messages being conveyed. Therefore, all of the above options, which include reciprocal and interconnected aspects, are correct in describing the relationship between perception and communication.

They also consider opposing information, meaning they are willing to listen to and consider different perspectives and opinions. Furthermore, competent communicators can see the validity of others, meaning they recognize and respect the value and truth in other people's viewpoints. Therefore, all of the given options accurately describe the qualities of competent communicators.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Perception involves how many processes

    • A.

      6

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      3

    Correct Answer
    C. 3
    Explanation
    Perception involves three processes: sensation, interpretation, and response. Sensation refers to the process of receiving sensory information from the environment through our senses. Interpretation involves making sense of this sensory information by organizing and assigning meaning to it. Finally, response refers to the behavioral or cognitive reactions that result from our interpretation of the sensory information. These three processes work together to allow us to perceive and interact with the world around us.

    Stage One is

    • A.

      Selection

    • B.

      Organization

    • C.

      Interpretation

    Correct Answer
    A. Selection
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Selection". This is because Stage One refers to the initial phase or step in a process, and in this context, it involves selecting or choosing something. The other options, Organization and Interpretation, do not align with the concept of selecting or choosing, making them incorrect choices.

    • A.

      Selecting stimuli from our environment

    • B.

      The above

    Correct Answer
    B. The above
    Explanation
    Selection involves the process of choosing or picking out stimuli from our environment. This can refer to the act of consciously or unconsciously selecting certain information or stimuli to focus on, while ignoring or filtering out others. In this context, "the above" refers to the statement mentioned before the answer option, which states that selection involves selecting stimuli from our environment. Therefore, the answer is indicating that the statement mentioned above is correct.

      Vivid

    • C.

      The above

    Correct Answer
    C. The above

      Example is- You pick on a conversation because someone mentions ur name

    • C.

      The above

    Correct Answer
    C. The above
    Explanation
    The given answer correctly explains that salience refers to stimuli that are selected from the environment based on their relevance or importance. It provides an example of picking up on a conversation because someone mentions your name, which demonstrates how salient stimuli capture our attention and stand out from the rest of the environment. This explanation effectively describes the concept of salience without explicitly stating that it is the correct answer.

    • A.

      Noticable Stimuli

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all the above" because vividness refers to stimuli or experiences that are easily noticed, memorable, and stand out from the ordinary. The girl who raises her voice and the guy who is 7'1 are both examples of noticeable stimuli that would capture people's attention and be considered vivid. Therefore, all the options listed in the question are examples of vividness.

    Figure Ground Organization involves

    • A.

      Focusing on one conversation when other go on in the background

    • B.

      The above

    Correct Answer
    B. The above
    Explanation
    Figure-ground organization refers to the ability of our visual system to distinguish between a figure (the object of focus) and the background or surroundings. It involves focusing on one conversation while other conversations go on in the background. This process allows us to selectively attend to specific stimuli while filtering out irrelevant information. By separating the figure from the background, our brain can better perceive and understand the visual scene.

    • C.

      The Above

    Correct Answer
    C. The Above

    Perceptual Bias...

    • A.

      Occurs because we all see things differently

    • B.

      Selective attention and selective perception are involved in this

    • C.

      The above

    Correct Answer
    C. The above
    Explanation
    Perceptual bias occurs because we all see things differently. Selective attention and selective perception are involved in this. This means that our individual experiences, beliefs, and attitudes can influence how we perceive and interpret information. These biases can lead to misunderstandings, misjudgments, and miscommunications, as different people may have different perspectives on the same situation. Therefore, perceptual bias is a result of the individual differences in perception and the involvement of selective attention and selective perception.
