Bruner and Postman (1949) briefly presented playing cards to people. Among the real cards were some with black hearts and red spades. The subjects failed to notice these, reporting that they were normal cards. Sometimes the denial was less complete and subjects reported 'purple' spades and hearts. My theme in this chapter has been that perception is a process whereby we construct economic descriptions and models of the environment. This is done by 'discovering' relationships and patterns in the environment.

What dimensions or categories are relevant will depend on the culture, the situation, the motivation and personality of the perceiver. Thus a religious enthusiast wants to know if people are saved or not, a political enthusiast which side they are on, a snob which class they belong to, and so on. In this section there have also been examples of analogies of behaviour from different species of animal to man. These must be scrutinised carefully, as much for what they omit as for what they include.
