Social Perception

Social Perception is the process by which we form impressions of other people and make inferences about them. For example, on the first day of a new class, when the professor walks into the room, I may perceive him to be short, poorly dressed, and socially awkward; he may initially remind me of previous teacher I didn’t like. But later on, once I have gathered more information, I may re-evaluate him as humorous, intelligent, and an excellent teacher.
