Image of a woman or a face? Gradient structure: A gradient is a continuous change in something- a change without abrupt transitions. But it may not be always possible to perceive the stimuli as they are. Factors that Influence Decision Making There are several important factors that influence decision making. Although a consumer's perception of a product or service is at least partially based on his actual experience with the good, a significant amount of market research suggests that a consumer's view of a product is also conditioned by a variety of other factors. People tend to view satiric cartoons differently, depending on their own attitudes. In addition to past experiences and cognitive biases, decision making may be influenced by an escalation of commitment and sunk outcomes, which are unrecoverable costs. These perceptions, in the workplace, drive the reality that we think is present.
X may feel that women are not capable of holding their own in tough negotiations. Most of our actions are primarily based on our perceptions. Perceptual learning: Based on past experiences or any special training that we get, every one of us learns to emphasise some sensory inputs and to ignore others. Several factors lead us to form inaccurate impressions of others. Can you assume that this behaviour reflects the sales person's personality? Errors in Perception : As seen above perception is process of analysing and understanding a stimulus as it is. To illustrate the rhetorical use of visual images, Scott analyzes a Clinique ad that shows tubes of lipstick and makeup immersed in a glass of soda water garnished with a slice of lime. Juliusson, Karlsson, and Garling 2005 indicated past decisions influence the decisions people make in the future.
Cognitive styles: People are said to differ in the ways they characteristically process the information. A number of factors operate to shape and sometimes distort perception These factors can reside: i In the perceiver ii In the Object or target being perceived or iii In the context of the situation in which the perception is made. There is an assistant who regularly takes several days to make an important decision. However, the idea is to avoid human shortcomings in important decisions. These sensations are transmitted to the concerned parts of brain. In addition, heuristics have been researched to understand the decision making process. The contrast effect also explains why a male students tands out in a crowd of female students.
I … nsight, intuition, or knowledge gained by perceiving. In addition, we remember information that is consistent with our mood state better than information that is inconsistent with our mood state. A full page spread advertisement attracts more attention than a few lines in a classified section. The purchasing attitude of a person educated in the Caucasus mountains has little to do with that of a person trained in technological Tokyo. Scott suggests that much research on images in advertising has dealt with pictures either as transparent representations of reality or as conveyors of an emotional appeal. Workplace Perception It is important to understand how these perception issues apply to the workplace. You probably cannot, because of the influence of the situation.
Project managers are particularly susceptible to consequences, because projects must succeed the first time and offer limited learning opportunity that does not end in failure. On the psychology of the recognition heuristic: Retrieval primacy as a key determinant of its use. For example, consider an equilateral triangle and insert or form equilateral triangles inside the large one exactly fitting. Because our individual interests differ considerably, what one person notices in a situation can differ from what others perceive. Perception is our sensory experience of the world around us and involves both the recognition of environmental stimuli and action in response to these stimuli.
But also genetic and biological conditioning factors. Humans are normally unaware of biases and heuristics, and awareness requires training, skill, and experience. For example, while giving promotions to the staff members, the managers will try to get full information to make an effective decision, in absence of getting complete information, managers try to make meaningful assumptions and based on that suitable decision will be made. Selective perception is also out tendency to choose information that supports our view points; Individuals often ignore information that makes them feel uncomfortable or threatens their view points. Two Viewpoints on Perception It has long been said that perception is reality, and I happen to believe that. Retinal disparity: The image of the object which falls on both the retinas differs.
Each culture has its own concepts, needs and specific techniques of child rearing as well as a set of expectations regarding patterns of approved behaviour. Obesity Children and adolescents who are obese have less sensitive taste buds. Perception not only creates our experience of the world around us; it allows us to act within our environment. Theories have been generated to explain how people make decisions, and what types of factors influence decision making in the present and future.

When we see people and houses from the top of hill, the images will be very small like Lillyputs. Characteristics of the Perceived: Characteristics of the person who is being observed can affect what is perceived.
The strength of the situational cues also affects social perception. Weighing the past and the future in decision making. Decision Making: Factors that Influence Decision Making, Heuristics Used, and Decision Outcomes. For example, in this Figure 3. Since, we can't observe everything going on about us, we engage in selective perception. Primacy effects can be particularly dangerous in interviews, given that we form first impressions quickly and that these impressions may be the basis for long-term employment relationships. Once you can see the world through the eyes of another human … behavior becomes more understandable, even predictable.
