Our emotions and environment around us influence how we react and perceive things. If you are in a bad mood, then you are most likely to perceive a situation with a negative attitude, whereas if you were in a good mood, then you would perceive a situation through a better, positive manner. Not only can your mood greatly affect how you comprehend something, but also how you were raised through your beliefs and different culture. If someone were raised in a culture where it is laid back and casual, then they are more than likely to handle situations in a laid back manner. People’s beliefs are very important and will determine how they handle a situations based on the morals and beliefs and what to them is considered right or wrong. Every person is unique in their own way, which then determines how they perceive things.
