The perceptual features people extract from objects depend on how they typically categorize them. It is now commonly acknowledged that the human perceiver can interact with the objects of his or her world at different hierarchically organized levels of categorization. People who have learned to categorize an object as general or specific may therefore perceive different features in this object. We report two experiments that examined the hypothesis that the nature of categorization (general vs. specific) can influence the perceived properties of an identical distal object.
