Perception and Presentation PT. II

Perception is one of many unfamiliar senses that we a Americans use on a daily basis. For example, if we see someone on the street with worn out clothes, messed up clothes and asking for spare change our perception is that this person is homeless. Based on this person's presentation we came up wth this perception. The biggest example of presentation and perception is with the media. Every time you turn on the news there is some negative or positive aspect of life that is blown out of proporion by the media. Whether we realize it or not the media plays a big role in our opinions and how we view issues. For example in the presidential election many people had their minds made up who they were going to vote for, but when the media began to expose and focus on the negative aspects of the candicates, some people changed their postion. In our society today it is very easy for us to be swayed back and forth because of opinion and presenation. That is why we must find out the truth for ourselves and not allow ourselves to be bothered by the opinions of others.
