BUS5202 Week 2 Reflect
Recall an experience at work when your perceptions (or someone else’s perceptions) were later found to be distorted. The following factors distort our perceptions:
a. Stereotypes – Assign attributes to a group of people
b. Halo effect – Uses one attribute to develop an overall impression of a person or situation
c. Selective perception – Defines problems from one’s own point of view
d. Projection – Assigns personal attributes to others
e. Contrast effects – Derive meaning by contrasting it to another recent occurrence
f. Self-fulfilling prophecies – Predetermining a situation based on individual experiences
With your recalled experience in mind, and given what you’ve learned about differences and perceptions this week, compose a response that addresses the following points:
- Which one of the listed distortion factors most contributed to your situation?
- What could you have done differently?
