I have studied that Gestalt Principles are principles/laws of human perception that describe how humans group similar elements, recognize patterns, and simplify complex images when we perceive objects. But can you give me real-life examples where this is applicable in day-to-day life not just looking at some patterns in the textbook.

    $\begingroup$ While reading this comment, you could say the Gestalt principle of proximity is at play when you recognize a sentence as groups of words. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It's still a toy example, but one you can try out right now, in the real world. If you take two pens, hold one over the other perpendicularly, your brain will perceive two straight pens, instead of some weird pen shaped like a cross, or two bent pens. This is the Gestalt principle of good continuation at play. $\endgroup$
