where do you think perceptions come from, either a person's or a society's? What shapes them when they're first developed, and what causes them to change them over time? How can we, when studying a different society - or even our own - make the distinctions between an individual's perception and a society's?

  1. I'll be glad to discuss your answer with you.

  2. I think perceptions come from both a person and society's. As a child we learn to perceive things, we also learn what is right or wrong from our parents. However as we grow older our perceptions change based on what we ourselves believe is right or wrong.Culture is a main factor in our perception, because not everyone has the same culture or belief.

    I don't really know how to answer the last part:

  3. We need to see how widespread a behavior or belief is. If many people share a perception, such as women are inferior to men, then we can say it's a societal perception. Societal perceptions are often part of the legal or religious system in a culture.
