Organizational Behavior / Perception


PERCEPTION
Perception may be defined as the

process by which an individual


selects, organizes and interprets
stimuli into a meaningful and coherent
picture of the environment in which he
lives.
Perception is the process of receiving
information about and making sense of the
world around us.
It involves deciding which information to
notice, how to categorize this information
and how to interpret it within the framework
of existing knowledge.
