The Spark Edition #29



Perception & Reality are many times, a topic of discussion and argument too. Everyone has their own perceptions about this. Ivanka Trump’s quote says perception about something is more important than what it represents.

We have featured an article with elephant twins Appy and Proppy about how perception and reality play its part in innovation and entrepreneurship. As usual, their mentor Lucky is there to help them learn.

There are articles from sources like Fast Company and Marketing Week about how certain words or the lack of words mean something in some language and something in the other, triggering perception about a culture. Another article says how people perceive it and what it actually boils down to, to actually be an entrepreneur.

We also have an article about how perception can trigger innovation. Then, we also have an article about customer experience, how perception plays an important part in it.

The infographics represent the factors that are subjective or objective that determine someone’s perception. Some of the best advertisers seem to know this formula. This is why they have an influence on people’s perceptions.

We conclude the Spark with a cartoon featuring Anny and Ory. Are you seeing three bars three or four? It depends on how you perceive it I guess. What you perceive is what reality is, in this case. I hope this edition of Spark sparks your ability to influence perception in a positive way and helps you in your innovation journey.
