Perceptions of Reality

100

This causes us to perceive hazy objects as farther away than sharp, clear objects

Relative Clarity

100

Objects or shapes that are close to one another appear to form groups

Proximity

100

Failure to detect changes in an environment due to a brief visual disruption

Change Blindness

100

The tendency to perceive little variation in the lightness of objects despite enormous differences in the amount of light falling upon them and in the amount of light reaching the eye from them

Lightness Constancy

100

Tendency to organize stimuli into coherent groups

Grouping

200

This helps us perceive objects as smaller when they are further away

Relative Size

200

All else being equal, perception lends itself to seeing stimuli that physically resemble each other as part of the same object, and stimuli that are different as part of a different object

Similarity

200

Not being aware of their own choice or preferences



Choice Blindness

200

Tendency to see an object you are familiar with to have the same size and shape despite being closer or farther from you

Perceptual Constancy

200

Organization of the visual field into objects that stand out from their surroundings

Figure and Ground Relationship

300

The farther away something is, the less detail it has

Texture Gradient

300

Refers to vision and is the tendency to create continuous patterns and perceive connected objects as uninterrupted

Continuity

300

No self awareness of choice blindness

Choice-Blindness Blindness

300

Perceiving objects as having the same size even though distance varies

Size Constancy

300

Taking bits and pieces and forming whole and meaningful objects out of them such as Necker’s Cube

Gestalt Psychology

400

Parallel lines seem to converge at a distance to convey a sense of depth because of this

Linear Perspective

400

Refers to the mind’s tendency to see complete figures or forms even if a picture is incomplete, partially hidden by other objects, or if part of the information needed to make a complete picture in our minds is missing

Closure

400

The inability to detect a change between two voices

Change Deafness

400

We perceive a shut door and an open one as the same shape, a rectangle

Shape Constancy

400

The visual cliff was a common experiment for this that showed that infants could estimate distance

Depth Perception
