Gestalt laws are the principles established by Gestalt psychologists as underpinning our perceptions. These include:-
- Law of Closure — The mind may experience elements it does not perceive through sensation, in order to complete a regular figure (that is, to increase regularity).
- Law of Similarity — The mind groups similar elements into collective entities or totalities. This similarity might depend on relationships of form, color, size, or brightness.
- Law of Proximity — Spatial or temporal proximity of elements may induce the mind to perceive a collective or totality.
- Law of Symmetry (Figure ground relationships)— Symmetrical images are perceived collectively, even in spite of distance.
- Law of Continuity — The mind continues visual, auditory, and kinetic patterns.
- Law of Common Fate — Elements with the same moving direction are perceived as a collective or unit.
- Law of precision -
