Assumptions and most often false identifiers What is a Stereotype ? "Any time you grouping races or individuals together and make a judgment about them without knowing them, this is an example of a stereotype. Racial remarks, sexual remarks, and gender remarks are the biggest stereotypes." http://examples.yourdictionary.com/stereotype-examples.html Why do we stereotype? Stereotypes may arise from fear when people encounter someone who appears to be different than themselves. This fear might be related to imagined threats of personal injury or perhaps an insecurity over economic or social status. Fear of Differences http://www.ehow.com/info_8231074_causes-stereotypes.html Popular media sources might also perpetuate stereotypes by portraying characters that belong to certain ethnic, gender and religious affiliations in a certain light. Films, books, magazines and music videos are all potential sources of misunderstandings. Media Lack of personal experiences
and Interaction "As individuals are exposed to different groups of people, there is a tendency to categorize or classify based upon one or two distinguishing factors. Categorization also exists to create a sense of belonging with a particular group. Often however, stereotypes emerge from a lack of experience with a particular group and are based upon assumptions." http://www.ehow.com/info_8231074_causes-stereotypes.html "Social reference groups, such as family and friends, are another source of stereotypes. They might be passed down through jokes or comments. Friends at school might make comments about certain cliques. Or if a child's parents communicate that members of certain religious groups aren't to be trusted and are morally deficient, the child may later harbor that stereotype." Social references
(Family and friends) http://www.ehow.com/info_8231074_causes-stereotypes.html Open Discussion What are the steps we can take to break stereotypes? "Consider that stereotyping doesn't substitute for cold hard facts about people. Start by looking at how many times people said things about you that weren't true. Analyze how they based their comments about you on assumptions they had about the group of people of which you were a part, perhaps." (EHow) "Think back at a time you were guilty of stereotyping someone. Ask yourself how true your assumptions where when you finally got to know the individual whom you stereotyped. Chances are that your assumptions were proven wrong." (EHow) "Attempt to rid yourself of prejudices and biases that lead you to stereotyping people." (EHow) "Adopt logic, critical thinking and application of actual facts in place of stereotyping people. Let people prove themselves to you. Let them define themselves. This gives better, more accurate data on someone than what you get when stereotyping them." (EHow) Questions? EHow Culture & Society. "How to Stop Stereotyping People." EHow.
