The Laws of Perceptual Organization are a set of principles in Gestalt Psychology. It involves several laws, including Similarity, Pragnanz, Proximity, Continuity, and Closure. Each of the laws deals with how the mind has atendency to fill in missing information. Similarity deals with how similar objects are grouped together. Pragnanz is how people usually simplify reality as much as possible. Proximity is how objects that are closest to each other are usually grouped together. Continuity is the tendency of the mind to prefer smooth lines, therefore lines are usually seen as following the smoothest path. Last, Closure is how objects that are impartial and grouped together are usually seen as whole. Refer to: http:/
