Communication 130 Chapter 3 ­ Perception (continued...) Interpretation­ creating meaning.  Attributions o Self­Serving Bias: constructing attributes that serve our own personal interests.  Being selfish. Factors influencing our perceptions  Expectations  Physiological factors (including the five senses, physical factors, etc.)  Cognitive abilities (such as when a child learns that a dog is a four legged animal, they  start to associate all four legged animals as dogs.)  Social Roles (When a teenager goes to a party, it is the parents job to worry that  something will go wrong at the party. They are being protective as a parent should.)  Memberships in Culture and Social Communities  Media Improving Perception Skills  Avoid mind reading – we are assuming what a person wants, this can very easily be  misleading.  Check your perceptions with others – Verify your information. Do not automatically  believe what you think is correct.  Distinguish facts from inferences – Do not jump to conclusions. Know your facts  before you react to a situation.  Monitor self­serving bias – Make sure to give credit where it is due. Do not reward  yourself with all the credit, say “Good job” or “Good work” every once in a while.  Be aware our perceptions may not be accurate.  Always, keep an open mind!
