Perception is the process of assigning meaning to sensory information. Someone’s perception is his or her reality. Perception in communication determines how one will communicate and how they will receive information from another person. Perception in communication is based on three elements. Your perception of others is the product of how you view yourself, which you remember things better if you relate to self and that you tend to ignore that which contrasts with your view of self.
Environmental perceptions are formed based on the context in which the information is received. For example, if a child turned to a parent and said, “I hate you,” that would have one obvious perception, but if you were practicing for a play and you read, “I hate you” in your script, the perception of the same words changes. One’s environment will shape the perception that creates a mental filter in which they will process life and information through.
Perceptions vary from person to person. Different people perceive different things about the same situation. But more than that, we assign different meanings to what we perceive. And the meanings might change for a certain person. One might change one's perspective or simply make things mean something else.
I myself personally use perception to tell if someone is lying, or telling the truth, or happy or upset or sick. My mother used perception on her children to tell if we where really sick or just faking to get out of a math test. You can use perception of nature, like the way the leaves are blowing might tell of a storm coming. When birds chirp at me, I perceive it as a warning they have built a nest someplace and I am about to stumble on their nest if I don't pay attention. Ducks quacking give me the perception I need to go to the house and feed them, like a baby crying is a perception for a mother to feed it. The perception of smoke could mean there is a fire.
