Perception - Perception management - Netflix

Perception management is a term originated by the US military. The US Department of Defense (DOD) gives this definition:

Actions to convey and/or deny selected information and indicators to foreign audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning as well as to intelligence systems and leaders at all levels to influence official estimates, ultimately resulting in foreign behaviors and official actions favorable to the originator's objectives. In various ways, perception management combines truth projection, operations security, cover and deception, and psychological operations.

“Perception” is defined as the “process by which individuals select, organize, and interpret the input from their senses to give meaning and order to the world around them”. Components of perception include the perceiver, target of perception, and the situation. Factors that influence the perceiver: Schema: organization and interpretation of information based on past experiences and knowledge Motivational state: needs, values, and desires of a perceiver at the time of perception Mood: emotions of the perceiver at the time of perception Factors that influence the target: Ambiguity: a lack of clarity. If ambiguity increases, the perceiver may find it harder to form an accurate perception Social status: a person's real or perceived position in society or in an organization Impression management: an attempt to control the perceptions or impressions of others. Targets are likely to use impression management tactics when interacting with perceivers who have power over them. Several impression management tactics include behavioral matching between the target of perception and the perceiver, self-promotion (presenting one's self in a positive light), conforming to situational norms, appreciating others, or being consistent.

Perception management is essentially a means for which an image or reputation can be created and maintained, whether it is true or not. On September 24, 2011, The American Dietetic Association announced it would change its name to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In this case, the ADA is adjusting its name to more accurately describe the organization. According to Escott-Stump, “The name Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics promotes the strong science background and academic expertise of our members.” It is thought that by adding the word nutrition to its name, the organization is better able to communicate its ability to transfer nutritional science and research into healthy lifestyles and foods everyone can understand. Also, by keeping dietetics, it creates a connection between the new research and the history and reputation ADA has as a food and science-based profession. Escott-Stump reassured the public that although the name is changing, the organization's mission will remain the same as it has been for nearly 100 years.
