How to improve our perceptual skills and awareness
by Jan R. Heinricks, Brian H. Kleiner
International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Life-Long Learning (IJCEELL), Vol. 5, No. 1/2, 1995

Abstract: Perception is the process by which people select, organise and interpret sensory information from which they form attitudes. Perceptual processing is affected by the thing perceived, the perceiver, and the nature of the situation. By understanding how perceptions affect themselves and others, people can deal with each other and reality more effectively. Perceptual skills can be improved by sending perceptually effective messages, perceiving oneself accurately, being empathetic, and being aware of perceptual distortions and impressions.
