    Is there a difference between judgment and perception? If so, what is the difference?

    In addition, can perception and action occur simultaneously. Does the difference, therefore, between judgment and perception have something to do with time?

    I would say that perception, to begin with, relate to senses. What we absorb through sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing. It obeys also to realization, the eureka or aha moment. To recognize a situation, fact or hypothesis to what we believe something is or appears to be for us...

    Judgement is strictly based on the principles we´ve been raised with. Regardless of the naked truth. If we´ve been raised to believe that something is bad, our tendency would be to condemn that what we feel is wrong. But wrong and right are angles of views, no perception. Perception can be tainted by our personal standards...

    What is good for you may be bad for me and viceversa. On a larger scale, idiosincrasies play an important role. The best example is East and West...

    Abstract concepts such as honesty or humility, even love; though they have a generalized definition, are seen under a different light for Easterners and Westerners, and even within the same culture, influenced by principles and religious views...

    Do they have to do with you? Absolutely...You may be influenced by many factors ( all of those discussed above), but it is your choice in the end what determines the outcome or realization...

    This is , of course, my personal view...

      So, it seems, judgment has to do with conditioning; family, schooling, religion, culture, social structure, political and economic system, ideology. While perception, if free from that conditioning, is clear, direct, true; not clouded by time.

    There is an entire difference. Perception is how you perceve the situation, what your senses pick up. Judgment is a reaction to perception, you analyze after perceving. Action comes after judgment, or assessing the situation. Think of it as a series of events within less than a second.
