The following principles are all instances in which our snap judgment and viewpoints lead to significant psychological perspective shifts. The first perception for us to use to the gain-loss principle, which states that as one person’s opinion of somebody else becomes increasingly favorable, the other person is more likely to develop a more favorable opinion of them in return.
