Noumena are similar to phenomena in that there is an awareness of a connection or relationship between objects, events, people, or ideas, but the connection or relationship is more of a perception than an observation. This type of connection or relationship is intangible and cannot always be clearly identified; however, it may be perceived as being real. Examples of noumena include intuition that guides behavior, faith’s role in healing, and the effect personal beliefs have on decision making. The study of tangible phenomena is far more common and easier to grasp than the abstractness of noumena; however, study of noumena is valuable, especially in the field of human services.
