Emotions and Perception


Emotions and Perception

An emotion is a mental and physiological state associated with a wide variety of feelings,
thoughts, and behavior. Emotions are subjective experiences, or experienced from an
individual point of view.
Emotions are thought to be related to activity in brain areas that direct our attention,
motivate our behavior, and determine the significance of what is going on around us.
Emotional Intelligence (EI), often measured as an Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ), is
a term that describes the ability, capacity, skill or (in the case of the trait EI model) a
self-perceived ability, to identify, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, of others,
and of groups.
Practically speaking, we often fail to see reality in this world. We interpret what we see
and call it reality. Perceptions, thus, influence behavioural responses greatly.
Perception is nothing but a person's view of reality. To get a clear picture of what he
visualises, a person first selects what he wants to see organises the obtained information
and interprets the same in his own unique way. In this process he may move closer to
reality or go off the track completely due to certain perceptual errors.
