Sensory Perceptions




Theaim is to determine whether people can trust their sense and theinterpretation of those senses for delivering accurate data to giveview of the world. This report also describes the accuracy, precisionand weakness in human sense as they think about particular or wholethings. There are many reason to believe in accuracy of sensoryperception and or inaccuracy of these sensors and their perceptionsin our life.

Abelief is that there is own ego involve in perception of human mind.These sensory perception are in constant touch with external worldand interpret things based on background of the data, previous humanexperience and some factors play important part in defining thesesensory perception. When one person had one type of experience andother had a dissimilar experience then both persons will not have thesame perception because of these factors [CITATION Jan08 l 1033 ].

Thereare various factors that contribute to the accuracy of the data,consider our organs for the matter, which provide us sensation andour body reacts based on those sensations[ CITATION Sen15 l 1033 ].The second factors can be our neurons, which define howwe will feel and perform different tasks. The final factors that canbe the key point is the sensation of perception[ CITATION Kem09 l 1033 ].

Thequestion whether believing in accuracy of sensory data is choice oropinion of person in contact with the question. There are many peoplewho believe in political, philosophical and religious matters, andbecause of many perceptions accuracy of the data can’t be judged bythe data of sensory alone [ CITATION Als93 l 1033 ].There are some factors involve in judgment and among the data thatdescribes these factors are the state of mind of the person who’sintact with the question [ CITATION Als93 l 1033 ].Consider if someone is ill then he will not be able to translateproper sensory data andthat can also effect the accuracy of perception [CITATION Jan08 l 1033 ],andbecause of these factors accuracy can’t be determine on the basisof single theory.

Thereare many possibilities and consider if someone feel anxious with thesociety and don’t want to go out then person will have fear and inthat state accuracy can be difficult to determine based on the naturealone. Consider another possibility that a person is told to fearsomething and on that occasion person will have a differentperception because that person is not actually fearing but insteadtold to fear, and based on this this examples, assumptions can bemade that sensory data depends on factors and among then there isemotion conflict that play major role in defining sensory perception.

Sensorswill always be the major upfront in defining different things inhuman state of mind, including geological, environmental andreligious factors [ CITATION Mer05 l 1033 ].On the other hand nature itself doesn’t play an effective role ininterpreting sensory data. Consider a possibility that if someone isborn with fearing the world and couldn’thold up to the loud noise of cars and vehicles in our society, thatperson will likely to live where there is less noise and cut tieswith the world.

Ifwe evaluate the person’s sensory data then that person isdeveloping ability to sense and live based on those personal terms.There are two major factors to the sensory data, one is eithersensory data is altered by the environmental factor or the personalfactor. Since that person has a personal view of world and noisewhich states that every person has its own frame of mind and thatplays important part in defining sensory perception, as said byMerleau in the book republished in year 2005, that no second personhave the same perception [ CITATION Mer05 l 1033 ],which means every person has its own unique sense, and that is why inlaw courts eye witness is necessary for testimony[CITATION Jan08 l 1033 ],andif in future science holds upper hand on the matter then there willno need of any eye witness in courts.

Thereare many things that will never fully be illustrated unless sensorydata is perceived based on a general theory and it will likely totake a lot of time to understand human behavior and their senses, butwith the current data, determining the sensory perception will bedifficult since ever second person carry a different set of emotionand behavior and because of that, sensory data maybe the wrong choiceof action if making a general theory of the data that is availablecurrently.

Ina research article publish in 2012, author regards sensory data toacquire so that uncertainties can be prevented. The author describesthat these believes are common in both scientific data and everydaylife[ CITATION Kar12 l 1033 ]. Keeping this perspective and above discussion, perception can bemade that there are various names ofSensory data and one can’t simply believe in complete accuracy ofdata based on perception of one person.
