I’m working on a Writing question and need guidance to help me study.

Just read this and reply to it. No long answer, something short. Use your own words.

discussion unit IV
Our individual perceptions shape our experiences and our realities. In A Beautiful Mind, John Nash’s perception of reality is distorted by schizophrenia. The experiences that he believed the be real, never actually occurred due to his illness. He was unable to separate what was genuinely real and what his mind perceived to be real. A friendship that he believed existed dissolved into nothing after his diagnosis. I believe perception is different due to everyone’s individual needs, influences, and lenses. The popular quote, “what is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly”, comes to mind. People’s perception of events will differ because the way they view the world differs. In chapter four, Chaffee discuses perceiving things through different lenses which is why people will never experience things the same way. What factors help shape your own perceptions and how do you determine those perceptions as “real”?
