Transcript of Schemas

Perception, Bartlett and Carmichael
Main Idea - We have a framework of knowledge about objects, people and places that affects our perception
Example: we are waiting to meet Mr. Johnston in a crowded railway station. We see his shiny bald head approaching and sigh. We are sure it is him. But it is not him - it is another bald old man. Our expectation has affected our perception.
