This is my Literature Review paper:

  • What arethe Causes & Affects of Person Perception?

  • Abstract

  • Whatis person perception and exactly what causes one person to think certain waysabout other people? Kendra Cherry, a physiology expert, (2014) states that “Insocial psychology, the term perception refers to the different mentalprocesses that we use to form impressions of other people”. People are quick toform a perception about someone without even talking to the person. Perceptionsare formed based on many different variables such as needs, wants, attitudes,experiences, and beliefs. After the perception has been formed the person isplaced into a social category such as wealth, employment, and/or religion.After the person has been categorized into a social group the reaction,positive or negative, process will begin.

  • Theseperceptions of others cause us to portray certain behaviors and in the long runthis will affect the way we make decisions. (Cherry, K.2014). It is very important that peoplekeep a positive attitude when interacting with others so that the perceptionsof others are not misconstrued or clouded based on fast judgment, socialcategorization, and human reactions. (Bargh, J. A., Chen, M.,& Burrows, L. 1996). The purpose for writing this piece is to find out whypeople are so quick to cast judgment upon others and also to attempt to changethis behavior in myself because I have noticed recently that I am quick to castjudgment upon others based on their appearance or based on tattoos, piercing,or hair color. It is not fair to judge people at all, but to judge one based ontheir hair color? That is just absurd.

  • TheMany Different Variables

  • Peopleare quick to form a perception or an opinion about someone without even talkingto the person. Perceptions are formed based on many different variables such aswealth, handicap, appearance, clothes, hair (style and/or color), cars, music,color (race), etc. If a person is well dressed one will perceive that specificperson is wealthy or takes good care of themselves. Example: If Billy (an olderAfrican American male) is seen at a store being very friendly with a known drugdealer, people will perceive that Billy is purchasing drugs from this dealer.This is the way our eyes perceive the situation, and then we are quick to castour judgment that Billy has a drug problem. “Perceptions are the basis of allactions: decisions, judgments, attitudes, emotions, all the choices made byindividuals, organizations, and communities are based on the perceptions of thepeople involved” (Shaus, R. 2001-2010). All of these variables are also basedon situation and experience, meaning that most likely two people in the samesituation will have totally different views of the situation.

  • RickShaus (2001-2010), provides this great example “Two people can look at a drugaddict with one seeing a criminal and the other seeing a victim ofcircumstance, a third person could claim to see a case of mental illness andaccording to different frames of judgment, each or all three could be correct”.This results from people growing up in different life styles and someone who hadpreviously been in a similar situation would be more understanding than someonewho had never experienced this before. Someone who had never done drugs is morelikely to look down upon people who use drugs or people who have used drugs intheir past. People who are raised wealthy have totally different views fromthose who were raised very poor and these different people would also havedifferent morals and values they were raised to agree with, but it does nottake long for one to form an opinion of someone else based on looks, actions,or any other variable that may be involved.

  • LabelingSocial Category

  • Afterthe perception has been formed about the person and they have been placed intoa social category, the reaction process starts. The reaction or labeling caneither be negative or positive. “Labeling is based on the self-identity andbehavior of individuals may be determined or influenced by the terms used todescribe or classify them and it is known to be associated with the concepts ofself-fulfilling prophecy and stereotyping” (Macionis, J., andGerber, L. 2010). An example of self-fulfilling prophecy is; a teacher whothinks a child is slower than the rest of the students may start to cater tothat child more than usual or ask the child less difficult questions ascompared to the rest of the class. The teacher does this in hopes of the childreceiving better grades, but may result in the student getting better gradesthan any other student in class.

  • Stereotyping is known as “a fixed, overgeneralized belief about a particular group or class of people” (Cardwell, M.1996). “One advantage of a stereotype is that it enables us to respond rapidlyto situations because we may have had a similar experience before and onedisadvantage is that it makes us ignore differences between individuals;therefore we think things about people that might not be true (i.e. makegeneralizations)” (Cardwell, M. 1996). Labeling has become so negative recentlythat it has acquired a bad name; from doctors, teachers, parents, and thepublic. Stereotype labeling is the worst type of labeling because it causes oneto assume things, mostly negative thing, about a certain gender, race, orreligion.

  • Perceptions& Behavior

  • “Behavioralpotentials set the limits within which our dispositions can vary. And vary theydo, even for people in the same culture, society, and family” (Hewitt, J.1970).  These perceptions of others causeus to portray certain behaviors and in the long run this will affect the way wemake decisions and it will also affect the way our children make decisions. Thechildren are our future and the responsibility is in our hands to teach themright from wrong and I have learned that having a negative attitude affectsone’s way of life and happiness, so be as positive as possible in allsituations. Staying as positive as possible has many benefits such as: “Peoplewho practice positive thinking are more likely to have less stress, are moreoptimistic believe in themselves and their abilities, believe that the bad thingsthat do happen to them are just small setbacks, and they can easily overcomeanything” (Universe Laws. 2014).

  • Peopleof the same culture have the same beliefs and values as one another. They seeeye-to-eye majority of the time and get along because of this. Some culturesreflect negativity towards other cultures and children learn to mimic theseactions early in life. Some families discipline their children in a negativemanor and this causes the children to grow up confused and being a rebelagainst anyone with authority. The way we grow up depends on the way we willraise our own children, but people have been known to break the cycle byputting forth effort to see the wrongdoings and correct them. Example: Long agomembers of the KKK would walk around performing violent hate crimes and thisbehavior towards African Americans continued for generations. This can causepeople to cast judgment only based on skin color and a negative perception isplaced upon this group because of their beliefs and actions. Since this type ofhatred can be discontinued we should also discontinue our casting judgment sofast.

  • Conclusion

  •   Tosum it all up one’s perception of others or a situation can be altered by whatthe eyes see instead of knowing the situation and evaluating it properly.  One should never form a false perception ofanother based on wealth,handicap, appearance, clothes, hair (style and/or color), cars, music, color(race), employment, and/or religion. These perceptions of others cause us toportray certain behaviors and in the long run this will affect the way we makedecisions. (Cherry, K. 2014). It is very important that people keep a positive attitudewhen interacting with others so that the perceptions of others are notmisconstrued or clouded based on fast judgment, social categorization, andhuman reactions.

  •   Labelinghas become overwhelming and should only reflect positive labeling instead ofnegative labeling such as gay, Negro, etc. Stereotype labeling is the worsttype of labeling because it causes one to assume things, mostly negative thing,about a certain gender, race, or religion. We all should refrain from doingthis because it causes negative reactions all around.

  •   Everyoneshould try to stay positive about all situations all the time. Universe Laws(2014) states that “People who are happier have their thoughts aligned towhat they want, helping manifest desires, improve outcomes, events, and overallhappiness in life”.  “Start changing how your mind thinks and don’tforget that your thoughts control your emotions which can help control theevents in your life, good or bad” (Universe Laws. 2014). Staying positivealways has the best results, especially when interacting with others around youon a daily basis.
