"Grouping: As per the grouping principle, people tend to group together the various stimuli so that they are seen as a unified picture or unified whole; the basis for such grouping is i) similarity amongst stimuli; and ii) proximity of the stimuli. The grouping of the discrete and distinct pieces of stimuli is done so as to facilitate storage in memory and easy recall. - proximity of the stimuli: The stimuli or the elements that stand close to each other in some way are grouped together. As the stimuli stand close to one another, people perceive them as a group or pattern. The spartial or temporal proximity of the stimuli activates the human mind to perceive them as a collective entity. Source:"
