The principles of grouping are a set of principles in psychology to account for the observation that humans naturally perceive objects as organized patterns and objects. Psychologists argued that these principles exist because the mind has an innate disposition to perceive patterns in the stimulus based on certain rules.

The law of proximity states that "objects or shapes that are close to one another appear to form groups".
