“Perception is a powerful force that can distort reality and make even the smallest issues appear larger than life.” - Unknown

πŸ“„ ABSTRACT
#

Human perception is a complex cognitive process that allows individuals to make sense of the world around them. One aspect of this perceptual experience involves perceiving the location of other people relative to oneself. Whether it is perceiving someone in front, back, behind, on the right side, left side, under or over, our subjective experience plays a significant role in shaping our understanding of interpersonal relationships and spatial awareness. This essay explores the fascinating realm of human subjective experience in perceiving others’ location, delving into the psychological and sensory processes involved.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ THE ROLE OF PERCEPTION IN INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS
#

Human perception serves as a fundamental basis for building and maintaining interpersonal relationships. When encountering another person, our perception helps us establish their location in relation to ourselves, which influences our subsequent actions and interactions. For instance, perceiving someone in front of us may signal familiarity and invite engagement, while perceiving someone behind us may trigger caution or even fear.

πŸšͺ PERCEIVING LOCATIONS: FRONT
#

The perception of someone in front typically evokes a sense of direct confrontation or engagement. It often implies a face-to-face encounter, allowing us to observe facial expressions, body language, and other non-verbal cues.

🧱 PERCEIVING LOCATIONS: BACK OR BEHIND
#

Perceiving someone behind us can create a feeling of support and backup or induce fear from unknown person.

➑️ PERCEIVING LOCATIONS: RIGHT SIDE
#

Perceiving someone on our right typically implies a parallel or adjacent position. This perception often allows for easier communication and interaction, as we can maintain eye contact and engage in direct conversations without turning our heads significantly. In english language use of “This is downright important” can literally means that we place meaningful persons or items in our mind on the downright side.

⬅️ PERCEIVING LOCATIONS: LEFT SIDE
#

Perceiving someone on our left typically implies a parallel or adjacent position. This perception often allows for easier communication and interaction, as we can maintain eye contact and engage in direct conversations without turning our heads significantly. In subjective experience we tend to code in spatial location persons, things and events according their relationship to us. Left side is commonly used by right handed people as codification for the past, stable and fix relationship between ourselves and “our” people or things.

⬇️ PERCEIVING LOCATIONS: UP OR OVER
#

The subjective experience of perceiving someone under differs from the previous scenarios due to the altered spatial orientation. When encountering an individual beneath us, such as on a lower level or physically crouched, it may evoke feelings of superiority or authority. These subjective experiences influence our behavior and interactions, shaping power dynamics and social hierarchies. Even if we have got fear of public speaking we can speak to group of children as our perception changed the representation in our mind.

⬆️ PERCEIVING LOCATIONS: UNDER
#

Perceiving someone above us, for example, when they are taller or positioned on an elevated platform, can trigger sensations of subordination or insignificance.

🧱 PERCEIVING LOCATIONS: BEHIND THE SEPARATION
#

Perceiving yourself separated from your goal or way by solid wall, mountain or other big solid mass means that unless you overcome issue or break through there it’s no other way.

πŸ•³οΈ PERCEIVING LOCATION: IN THE HOLE
#

Perceiving yourself as in the hole it’s another favorite metaphor. We need to wait for flood of water or help from our fellows. People who are “in the hole” may feel like they are the only ones who are struggling, and that no one understands what they are going through.

πŸ§— ON THE EDGE
#

If we make one wrong move it’s over. we fell without repair. It describes a state of high anxiety, stress, or excitement. It can be a feeling of being on the verge of something, whether it is a breakdown, a breakthrough, or something else entirely. People who are “on the edge” may feel like they are going to lose control, or that they are about to explode. They may feel restless, irritable, and have trouble concentrating. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, shaking, or a racing heart.

πŸ” I AM GOING IN THE CIRCLE
#

We are repeating out loops till something change.

πŸ—Ώ BIGGER THANK LIFE OR PUT SOMEONE ON PEDESTAL
#

Perceiving someone in our mind in bigger than life or putting someone on a pedestal is a common phenomenon in human relationships where an individual attributes extraordinary qualities or values to another person, often idealizing them. When we place someone on a pedestal, their actions, opinions, and behaviors hold significant influence over our own self-perception and decision-making processes. This act of elevating someone’s status can deeply impact the dynamics of interpersonal connections and the subjective experience of the mind.

πŸ‘ž WALK IN SOMEONE’S SHOES
#

When we imagine walking in someone else’s shoes, we attempt to mentally transport ourselves into their reality. This exercise encourages us to consider their background, beliefs, values, and personal history. By doing so, we open ourselves up to new perspectives and challenge our own biases and assumptions.

⏳ IN 100 YEARS NO ONE WILL REMEMBER THIS
#

Extending time scale from “Now” I feel it, therefore it’s upmost importance! to In given perspective it has got slight importance.

🌐 I SEE IT AS A SPECK OF DUST COMPARED TO THE GRAND UNIVERSE
#

Some people are calm in their mind considering that in the great scale of things, this it’s really small issue.

πŸ› οΈ IT’S A LEARNING EXPERIENCE
#

Everything what’s happened, it’s happening or will happen it’s learning experience. Instead of crying over spilled milk we can learn how to not do it again or to do it again in more creative way.

EXPERIMENT NO 1. RELATION TO OTHER PERSONS IN YOUR GROUP
#

Take several coins and place them on the table. Assign one coin as you and other coins as your friends. Put the coins of your friends in relation to your coin. Some friends might be closer, some more distant, some might be at different level in relation to you. Next step, try to position the coins for your family, next step for your colleagues, bosses and subordinates.

EXPERIMENT NO 2. CHANGING TIME-FRAME
#

Imagine that in 100 years no one will remember this event, problem or issue. The importance might be blown out of proportion when we thing in lapse of time. Some parents might think that in 60 years time this kid will take care of them and thinking about this engage more on emotional bound than leaving kids with their phones.

EXPERIMENT NO 3. CHANGING THE PERSPECTIVE DIFFICULT PERSON TO DEAL WITH TO PIECE OF CAKE
#

Imagine in your mind Difficult person you are dealing with in your mind and notice the qualities of representation. The person location, distance, size. Now in your mind convert this person to small piece of food you like, place it almost on the ground in front of you. Take this small piece of food with your hand and eat it. Notice the change of your body sensation and perception of this person. Observe changes in your real life.

  • Why did the debate team go to the optometrist? They wanted to improve their ability to see things from different points of view.
  • I asked my friend for their perspective on life. They said, “Life is like a camera. You can focus on the negatives and develop them, or you can focus on the positives and develop them. It’s all about your perspective!”
  • My friend told me they have a 360-degree perspective on life. I asked if that means they’re constantly spinning in circles. They replied, “No, it means I see all angles and never miss a beat!”
  • I tried looking at life through rose-colored glasses, but then I realized I couldn’t see the thorns. Sometimes a clear perspective is just as important!
  • A group of hikers were arguing over which path to take. One said, “Let’s go left!” Another said, “No, right!” Finally, one person suggested, “How about we look at the map together and find a compromise?” It turns out, a shared perspective can lead to better decisions!
  • Why was the math book sad? Because it had too many problems from different perspectives!
  • Two people are looking at a glass of water. One says it’s half full, the other says it’s half empty. Meanwhile, the engineer in the room says, “The glass is twice as big as it needs to be!”
  • Why did the artist always carry a sketchbook? Because they believed in capturing different perspectives, one sketch at a time!
  • How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb? Just one, but the light bulb has to want to change its perspective.
  • A pessimist, an optimist, and a realist walk into a room. The pessimist says, “It can’t get any worse than this.” The optimist replies, “Oh, yes, it can! The realist sighs and says, “Here we go again…”
