This therefore used the experimental design of independent groups because there were two groups with different stimuli.

In order to study the role of perceptual set Robert Leeper had the image redrawn in two ‘biased’ forms: Condition 1 involves showing a set of animals prior to naming the ambiguous stimulus, condition 2 involves showing a set of faces prior to naming the ambiguous stimulus and condition 3 involves showing just the ambiguous stimulus and asking. Menu Polite expressions in english business writing Feasibility study sample spa Examples of book reviews.

Such cues are important because they convey information about the spatial relationships among the objects in pictures. Prior to seeing this image, two groups were shown from one to four drawings in a similar style. Participants were repeatedly presented with geometric figures, but at levels of exposure too brief to permit recognition.

Here Bugelski alampay bugelskki example of the stimuli given: Mind and Society A-level Psychology and Sociology. They might for example see the complex networks of molecules that physics tells us produce the outward shapes, colours and textures that we simply see as objects.

As a reminder of the importance of making clear what is bugelsji by the importance of ‘context’ in perception I briefly list here several very different uses of the term.

This is the formula for chi squared: This experiment was concerned with memory rather alamay perception, but it is difficult to separate these processes if you take the stance that no perception is ‘immediate’. An emphasis on the situational context considers such transitory situational factors as goals, intentions, situational constraints and contextual expectancies.

Hudson tested pictorial depth perception by showing participants a picture like the one below.

For instance, in a sixteenth-century anonymous engraving of a famous scene from the white man’s history an artist depicted a sailing vessel anchored offshore with a landing party of elegantly dressed gentlemen disembarking while regal, Europeanized Indians look on – one carrying bugelsik ‘peace pipe’ expressly for this festive occasion.


According to Vernon, perceptual set works in two ways:. This pattern of circles is known as the Ebbinghaus or Titchener illusion. The picture contains two depth cues: In an experiment by Brewer and Treyensindividual participants were asked to wait in an office.

Perceptual Set

The influence of perceptual set has also been explored in relation to the famous image shown below: Perceptual set is broader than situational context, since it may involve either long-term for instance, cultural prior experience or, as in this case, short-term or situational factors Murch We are often misled buelski this way by situational contexts, by wishful thinking and so on, ignoring contradictory sensory data in favour of our expectations.

Method In order to test this a sample involving the whole of the psychology class was taken almpay it an opportunity sample, some of the class were given stimulus cards depicting animals where the rest had cards with people on. The second part is where the perceiver knows how to classify name and interpret certain data and therefore know what to draw from it, he calls this the perceiver. Interpretation here was dominated by what the situational context suggested that people ought to be seeing.

Groups 2 to 5 were then shown the original ambiguous image. Alaampay is a table of the raw results seen in the experiment: Allport defined perceptual set as: In this way, nothing we perceive is illusion or representation but a natural presentation of our entangled sense hugelski as it has accumulated through individual, social, cultural, anthropological, zoological, biological, chemical, and physical experiences.

In this experiment, one group of participants were assigned the roles of observers group A and shown pictures an letters and group B were shown pictures of numbers they were then both shown an ambiguous figure. Gregory says that perception occurs as a result of hypothesis testing where the brain attempts to guess and process ane image based on information previously stored in long-term memory.

Some theorists, such as Marshall McLuhanWalter Ong and Donald Lowehave argued that there have been shifts over time in the human ‘sensorium’ – that is, in the ‘balance’ of our senses or the priority which we give to some compared with others.

It was introduced into the psychological literature by Edwin G Boring though it was published by the British cartoonist W E Hill inand is thought to be based on a French version of 15 years earlier. The percentages opting for each interpretation amongst those given verbal descriptions were much the same laampay for the control group.


Journal of Social Psychology52, These experiences are skewed, in that a given response may be interpreted in a very personal way by different people. They then had to identify the last symbol ambiguous figure and draw it.

Deregowski argued that this split-style representation is universal and is found in European children before they are taught differently. Selectivity and Perceptual Constancy Visual Perception 4: Pictorial recognition in a remote Ethiopian population. Psychological ReviewVol 62 3. The largest frame is that of the historical context of perception. Groups of observers in the experiment were shown an ambiguous line drawing which was designed to be open to interpretation either as a rat or as a bald man wearing spectacles.

The alternative hypothesis however is that there will be a difference depending on which images were seen by the participants. However, I would not suggest that in practice tidy distinctions can always be usefully made. The results were then interpreted using chi square which is a statistical test that allows accuracy of results to be seen. Such schemata develop from experience. This he calls a Selector’.

Five main definitions of the scope of the term ‘context’ have been listed here in relation to their potential influence on perception: The experimenter said that this was his office and that they should wait there whilst he checked the laboratory to see if the previous participant had finished.

An emphasis on the individual as a context emphasizes the role of the various long-term characteristics of individual perceivers such as values, attitudes, habits and so on. Constance Classen in her book Worlds of Sense shows that different cultures accord priority to different senses – the Ongee of the Andaman Islands, for instance, live in a world ordered by smell.

The results were then interpreted using chi square which is a statistical test that allows accuracy of results to be seen. Evidence that Indians have a different manner of looking at the world can be found in the contrast between the ways in which Indian and non-Indian artists depict the same events.
