No Reality, Only Perception (2)

No Reality, Only Perception (Video Link)

dreamstime_xs_19065343Previously I wrote about how our perception of ourselves determines what we think of us, and how it might not be accurate. Now I would like to write about how our perception of other people determines what we think of them, and again, how that perception may not be accurate.

For example, have you ever had an employee who really messed up? What was your perception of that employee’s ability to do the job at the time? Have your perceptions changed? If not, is it possible the employee has changed and you have not seen it? Although I believe that generally past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior, I also believe that people can change. It may be more difficult for our perceptions to change.

Are there other people in your professional and personal life who may have changed, and you have not seen it?

It is important to keep an open mind. We may need to consciously analyze our perceptions to see if they are still accurate.
