Perception Check

No body likes to be told what they are thinking and feeling.

Perception checking allows individuals to fully understand each other. ... In addition, the process of perception checking shows that you are tuned in to what the other person has to say (Hawkins, 2009). It shows you are invested in the person and willing to take the relationship to a deeper level.

When you ask a question ending with Is that right? they have the opprotunity to reveal their true feelings. They feel good about themselves because you have demonstrated to them they they matter, that they and their feelings are relevant and important to you.

Test yourself. Take this simple quiz before you move onto the next lesson.
