Things that we notice first may be reflections of our inner state. 

Dr. Steven Abel reminds us of the phrase that someone “can’t see the forest for the trees”, and says that it refers to the fact that someone cannot look beyond the details to get the big picture, that particular details prevent him or her to disengage his or her perception and get a grasp of the general gist of the situation.

These differences were also a subject of the studies of the psychologist Herman Witkin for three decades. He called the topic “field dependence versus field independence”. His first book was titled Personality Through Perception (Witkin et al., 1954), and it captured the idea that personalities can be revealed through differences in the way people perceive their environment.
