Person perception is a term adopted from social psychology that refers to the cognitive procedures humans employ to arrive at inferences about who other people are (Cherry).

The use of social categorization by the media and trial lawyers during a trial have a major impact on the societal perceptions and characterization of the victim(s) and the defendant(s).

His nine stages, known as psychosocial stages, show at different ages throughout life which we develop life-stage virtues.
