Verbal data in a quantitative assessment of ways of presenting visual objects



The article demonstrates the possibilities of using verbal analysis to quantify the data obtained in an experimental study of the perception of emotional expressions. It is shown that the verbal data adequately characterize the features of perception of images in different situations. Analysis of these data using methods developed in the framework of the paradigm of perceived quality provides quantitative indicators of their significance, depending on the type of perceived image and the conditions for its presentation. It was found that the least successful identification of the expression embedded in the image is characteristic of the situation of a “stroboscopic” presentation. This made it possible to draw concrete conclusions about the methods of video editing during the creation of cognitive experience transfer systems.
