    When one considers the perception of another?

    We may say that perception is the specific ability to make out something with our senses. The interesting part is your perception and my perception about anything specific may vary though we all are applying our senses to perceive anything. It may not be true in the case of colours unless someone is colour blind as what is red will be perceived as red by all but when it comes to the application of mind our perception varies a lot. Now, should we become worried about or consider others' perceptions? For example, when a gross injustice is visible to someone on a specific issue, another person may find no injustice in it and in this case should the person noticing the gross injustice be worried for the other one who didn't find anything wrong? Though remaining worried will never change the perception of the other person and in most cases, people do remain ignorant of others' perceptions but there are certain situations when one has to consider the perception of others before coming to any conclusion. Any idea when we do think for a while how others may perceive and then act?

    It is when we are responsible to give our judgement on anything specific that caters to a large audience. It may be a judge of a court, an editor of any newspaper or portal or even the head of a family. It is a person with high integrity dealing with a lot of people who thinks of the perception of others before the final decision.

    Unfortunately we tend to have our own perceptions on issues which are confronting and contradicting to many and that were one lives with their principle and knowledge acquired because we cannot change the mind of the person just because our thinking process was different and others should tow the same idea. Even in the present war crisis between Russia and Ukraine, there seems to be guarded response from nations including India as both countries are dear to us and even to other countries for obvious reasons and there cannot be huff decisions in supporting whom. Therefore having neutral stand is also bothering the US that it wants India to completely come out against the Russian invasion to which India is not agreeing. So perceptions changes according to our past relations and feel good factors with others also.

    True. Perceptions vary from person to person. But it is of no use to worry about the perception of others. If possible it is better to have a debate with the other person and try to come on the same platform or leave the perception of others as it is.
    When things are personal we need not worry about the perception of other people on this particular issue. But when the issue is a generic one and many others will also have an interest in the outcome, one should give importance to the perception of others.
    When a judge delivers a judgement, he will apply his earlier experiences, the history in which similar cases were dealt with and judgements were given, his perception and the perceptions of other people also will be taken into account. Because of the differences of perceptions only we will be seeing different judgement for the same case in different courts.

    Different people will have different perceptions of the same thing. It depends on many factors like what is the intellect level of the person observing that thing. Another is how it is going to affect him. Some people feel that their perception is the correct one. They do not bother for the perceptions of other people in that matter. So these people have poor data collection and input assimilation because they simply go with their own perception and in that process make mistakes and error in their lives. Your decisions are also of very superficial nature. On the other hand there are some people who consider all others perception in a particular matter and try to guess what other people might think about that issue. This approach helps in getting a number of perception from all directions and then making use of that information into decision making or simply understanding the issue in details.
