Perception and Thinking are closely linked

Perception and Thinking from Edward de Bono from HolstPerception is the meaning we make of different information that comes in, based on how we are looking at it. Different people perceive reality in different ways based on their interpretations. Thinking is working with our perceptions in different ways based on our needs and goals. The most common definition of thinking is that it is a logical process based on moving forward step by step to some sort of conclusion. When two people perceive things differently, they can reach very different conclusions even using the same thinking process. For example, imagine that you see a young woman running down the street screaming. Then you see a man running behind her, holding a stick. You think about the situation and conclude that the man is trying to harm the woman and the woman is trying to escape from the man. But another observer, from a different vantage point, can see a large dog with bared fangs running after the man and woman. This person concludes the man and the woman are both running from the dog. It has been found that as much as 90% of the errors made by people taking tests are errors of perception, rather than errors of logic. Perception is a very important part of thinking. Those who learn to manage perception become more powerful thinkers.
