Not Always Seeing the Whole Picture (Chapter 1)

Vote 0 Votes

Looking at a person or a picture, one is usually to judge about how they see a person or a picture. Sometimes we can usually pinpoint some, if not most characteristics of a person or picture. Naïve realism is the concept that I think is most interesting in this chapter. This picture, found in the book, caught and kept my attention after reading this chapter.


This picture looks completely normal because of naïve realism. Naïve realism means that we see things how we think we see them. Looking at this picture it looks almost the same but when you flip it around it is completely different. I find naïve realism interesting because everyone looks at a person or picture and thinks they really know all the answers, but when looked at more carefully, it can turn out to be opposite.
