What is Perception?
I consider perception as sensation plus meaning — already a mixture of more than one function. Thus to me, perception describes a complex mode of human functioning in which an individual pays attention to certain stimuli arising from the sense organs or brain and ignores other ones, regardless of whether the paid-attention-to arises through sensation or intuition as understood through the Jungian or Myers-Briggs grid. As I conceive it, human perception presupposes a considerable amount of unconscious ordering and rejection prior to its awareness.

What is emotion?
"I take emotion as affect; it is the same as something affects you. Emotion is the thing that carries you away. You are thrown out of yourself; you are beside yourself as if an explosion had moved you out of yourself and put you beside yourself" (Jung, CW 17, para. 46).
Jung distinguishes between emotion, as an involuntary, temporary, and chiefly unconscious behavior, and "feeling" ("F" on the MBTI) which he understands to be one of the two rational ordering functions, the other one being "thinking" ("T"). The feeling function is a value-based way of judging the perceptions brought to us either through sensation ("S") or intuition ("N").
