Top definition
A person who demands that people live their life more concerned about what others will perceive of them rather than who they actually are.

Perceptionists are typically found in corporate settings especially Fortune 500 companies. They tend to be so focused on perception rather than reality that life passes them by. While they may have piles of money they usually lack true happiness and a self fulfilled life.
I once had a boss that was such a perceptionist.
