If you saw the picture above and did not know who those people were, you would easily fall for the caption "Proud coach posing with middle school all-star, JJ. Watt."
And that is exactly what you would believe, isn't it? Unless of course, you knew who JJ. Watt was and that would immediately change your perception.
JJ. Watt is the NFL's defensive player of the year. He's 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds, and turns head because of his size.
Next to Yao Ming however, he looks like a middle schooler. Yao, is listed at 7-6, 310 pounds, a full head taller than Watt.
Perception is not reality.
Whenever you really want to know what you are talking about you have to begin with a clean slate and then, you need to fill it with accurate information.
