Cognitive/perceptual/actors The preceding section has dealt with relatively straightforward questions and responses concerning the subject's typical behaviour and his immediate feeling states. We move now towards. a set of cognitive/peripheral factors which while of undeniable significance are more elusive of definition and measurement. It is apparent that human subjects not only selectively perceive the world around, but make judgements and evaluations, deliberate about alternative solutions to problems, make plans, and try to cope with difficult situations by means of different plans and strategies.

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. The question as to whether these patterns actually exist in the world probably has no meaning. All that is required is that each person's model of the world (composed of his expectations and the patterns he sees) should be similar to the models of the people he comes into contact with.
