  7. 9. Perception Summary: <ul><li>Human perception is very efficient overall as it allows us to rapidly process large volumes of incoming information. However, the way we process information isn’t always accurate - we can sometimes experience errors/blind spots in perceived information. </li></ul><ul><li>As information enters our brain, it passes through various FILTERS that alter this info. to a degree. </li></ul><ul><li>Altered info is then RE-PRESENTED in a form that makes sense to us based on our own knowledge & understanding. </li></ul><ul><li>affects our internal emotional and physiological state which in turn has an effect on our outgoing behavioural response. </li></ul>
  8. 10. Beliefs <ul><li>What are Beliefs? </li></ul><ul><li>What we perceive to be the TRUTH </li></ul><ul><li>Are our beliefs always accurate? </li></ul><ul><li>The earth is flat </li></ul><ul><li>Man will never walk on the moon </li></ul>
  9. 11. What do Beliefs do? <ul><li>Beliefs are one of the simplest forms of mental representation and are therefore one of the key building blocks of conscious thought. </li></ul><ul><li>They help us to make sense of the world around us and shape our reality. </li></ul><ul><li>They provide us with internal guidance and influence our thoughts and behaviour. </li></ul>
  10. 12. Limiting Beliefs <ul><li>Beliefs that inhibit our thinking and personal growth. </li></ul><ul><li>Often tied into our self-image and perceptions about the world. </li></ul>
  11. 13. <ul><li>Examples of Limiting Beliefs: </li></ul><ul><li>I have specific capabilities, roles or traits that cannot be escaped or changed. </li></ul><ul><li>I cannot succeed, so there is no point in trying. </li></ul><ul><li>My opinion is right; therefore, there is no point in considering other viewpoints </li></ul><ul><li>That a particular action or result is the only way to resolve a problem. </li></ul>
  12. 14. How are Beliefs Formed? <ul><li>Develop our beliefs and our ideas of truth from the input of people we believe in or look up to (family, peers or authority figures) </li></ul><ul><li>If this input is negative, we come to develop negative ideas about ourselves, which creates poor self image. </li></ul><ul><li>Children in particular are vulnerable to accepting false negative judgements from authority figures as they do not have the ability to evaluate and challenge these judgements. </li></ul>
  13. 15. Process of thought <ul><li>CONSCIOUS </li></ul><ul><li>SUBCONSCIOUS CREATIVE </li></ul><ul><li>SUBCONSCIOUS </li></ul>
  14. 16. <ul><li>Conscious: </li></ul><ul><li>Involves the process of perception – gathering information about the world around us. </li></ul><ul><li>Subconscious: </li></ul><ul><li>Where our beliefs and ideas about the world are stored – also holds our self image </li></ul><ul><li>Creative Subconscious : </li></ul><ul><li>Maintains our beliefs and perceptions of reality. Also reinforces self image held in the subconscious. </li></ul>
  15. 17. How our beliefs are maintained <ul><li>In order to maintain our beliefs, the Subconscious/Creative Subconscious generates biases and distortions in perception which serve to support and reinforce our beliefs – i.e. we are more willing to perceive and interpret information that supports our beliefs and tend to ignore information that is inconsistent with them. </li></ul>
