Change of perception

I agree with the saying that the study of an academic discipline changes the way perceive the world. It is a commonly refused by people, but it actually alters our perception of almost all the things in this world.

For example, I majored in Computer Science and Engineering. Till my teen age, the internet is just a tool for me to search for book materials for academics, entertainment and online shopping. But when I zeroed in further on the specific topic of Networks in my academics, I could understand the nook and corner of the working of the internet such that what happens right from clicking a link in computer to what is displayed as the web page. The background process is amazing to know and changed my complete perception of the internet.

Another example I could state is about my friend who is allergic to blood. He had very good grades in his 12th grade and was forced to take Medical Sciences course. And now he is a successful surgeon. The satisfaction of saving a life made him not even care of his allergy towards life. In this way, our academic major changes our perception towards this world.

Thus, I agree with the saying that the study of an academic discipline alters the way we perceive the world. After studying the discipline, we see the same world but with different eyes.
