Interpretation of the Surroundings

Sensation involves judgment. It is the process in which sensory receptors create neural impulses that help in identifying different feelings in the eyes, nose, ears, tongue and other parts of the body. Perception deals with the processing of the sensory information that is gained by experiencing the outside world. It is impossible to separate sensation with perception because both are the elements of a continuous perception process (Lindsay et al, 1977, p.1).
"The role of perception is to make sense of sensation", (Zimbardo et al., 1997, p. 177). Basically, it organizes sensation into meaningful patterns. Moreover, it also helps in knowing and analyzing the world where we live in and a place where we experience a lot of different situations in our routine lives.
Dimensions of Social Perception
Social Perception is the sequence of related processes in which a person interprets and understands the world and people around with the help of available information. We see people making the variety of judgments for different things but they are unaware that these conclusions are not true for all situations even the experts are at times unable to identify what is right and what is wrong. In our society, when we make perceptions about people around us, we remain unsure of the reality and such false perceptions persist and prevail for a long time. In social perception, the behavior of a person is taken into consideration and on that, based the inference and supposition for his intentions and motives. People make important decisions on the basis of social perception which is very biased in for every field. Whether we consider the population of a country or students in a particular school, using social perception and its dimensions is an incorrect method of analysis and testing (Social Perception, 2007, p.1).
