Ladder of Abstraction
Use the ladder of abstraction to describe the relationships between perception, communication and action in one interpersonal encounter in your life. First, describe the situation as fully as you can-remember, I was not there, so no you will need to provide enough detail that I understand what was happening. Next, describe the behaviors and environmental cue you noticed. Finally, identify the way you labeled what was happening and others who were there. Now consider alternate selective perception you might have made and how they might have influenced your labels and actions. Would you differently if faced with this situation again? Your paper should be a 2-3 page paper citing specific examples and providing detailed analysis incorporation reading and textbook material. If outside sources are used, proper citation of the source should be included.
