Gestalt Laws of Groupings Proximity The closer objects are to one another, the more likely people are able to mentally group them together Similarity People link together parts of the visual field that are similar in color, lightness, texture, shape, or any other quality Continuity Seeing flow of elements continuing in a particular direction, rather than making an abrupt turn Closure People perceive whole objects from incomplete and imperfect forms Common Fate Leads people to group together objects that move in the same direction
