Happy new year :)
Pedophilia is a sexual attraction to children. It is considered a paraphilia, a condition in which a person's sexual arousal and gratification depend on fantasizing about and engaging in sexual behavior that is atypical and extreme. Pedophiles are more often men and can be attracted to either or both sexes. How well they relate to adults of the same or opposite sex varies.
Pedophilic disorder can be diagnosed in people who are willing to disclose this paraphilia, as well as in people who deny any sexual attraction to children but demonstrate objective evidence of pedophilia. For the condition to be diagnosed, an individual must either act on their sexual urges or experience significant distress or interpersonal difficulty as a result of their urges or fantasies. Without these two criteria, a person may have a pedophilic sexual orientation but not pedophilic disorder.

How do humans perceive depth?
Humans are binocular beings, hence the utilization of both of their eyes help perceive depth, but this is not enough. Hence, they also use the mechanisms of detecting depth with monocular vision. These mechanisms include: 1) relative size of the object at hand (If an image contains an array of similar objects that differ in size, the viewer interprets the smaller object as being farther away. 2) Interposition; If one object is positioned so that it obstructs the view of the other, the viewer perceives the overlapping object as being nearer. 3) Relative height; Among similar objects, those that appear closer to the horizon are perceived as being farther away. 4) Perspective; When parallel lines in a scene appear to converge in the image, they are perceived as vanishing in the distance. 5) Shading and shadows. and 6) motion.

What is Gestalt psychology?
Was an approach to psychology that began in Germany early in the twentieth century. The Gestalt psychologist emphasized the importance of perceiving whole objects or forms, and proposed a number of principles to explain how we organize objects. As used in Gestalt psychology, the German word gestalt is interpreted as "pattern" or "configuration".
These theories went on to explain our distinction from figure and the background, grouping of objects and the perception of distance.

Main approaches of the individual perspective:
The individualistic perspective of psychology referees to the subject’s perception of reality, and what behaviour this perception elicits. We all have different views of reality, and how we come to see reality, decides what our behaviour will be like. The individualistic perspective of psychology takes three trends: (1) The experimental method; applying scientific method to behavior, (2) Psychoanalytical method; taking the unconscious into account and (3) Humanistic approach; taking into account the human aspects such as self-actualization and creativity.
The individualistic perspective is a merge between the behavioral, cognitive, psychoanalytical and humanistic perspectives. This is mainly because the behavioral perspective fails to take into account the cognitive processes that take place when an action triggers a response from a human. The psychoanalytical and humanistic aspects come into this merge, because we are species with unconsciousness and possess human qualities such as creativity and self-actualization.
