Apperception refers to the personal values and interests determining the mode in which an individual perceives self , others, and the world. It is a conscious experience. The mode of perceiving is "biased" by convictions ; thus, each individual has a "biased apperception" of both subjective and objective experience. The schema of biased Apperception defines the individual's phenomenological field.*
