I’m studying for my Communications class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
This week we are talking about and learning about perception and how it influences our communication.
Read Chapter 4 in Interpersonal Communication by Kory Floyd.
Discussion questions for the week:
Watch this video and respond to a question below
- After watching the video above, how do you think the idea that the photographers were given shaped their pictures? What are the differences between the photographs?
- What inaccurate perceptions do people often have of you? Why are people prone to making these perceptual mistakes? What perceptual mistakes concerning other people do you find yourself making?
- Read “Prejudiced thoughts run through all our minds — the key is what we do with them” and reflect on your bias. How can we do to improve our perceptions? How can we make our bias less limited?
