Cultural Influences On Perception

Cultural Influences On Perception

Respond to the following prompt in a primary post of at least 150 words.

Sensation refers to an actual event; perception refers to how we interpret the event. What are some cultural differences that might affect responses to particular stimuli? In other words: provide an example of something that people from two different cultures may perceive in completely different ways (for example holding up two fingers, with palm facing the signer, is a very rude hand gesture for folks in the U.K., but in America, we hold up two fingers to mean “peace”). Create a post using examples from the text as well as your own experiences.
