Transcript of Stereotypes About Turkey

WHAT IS STEREOTYPING?
A stereotype is “...a fixed, over generalized belief about a particular group or class of people.” (Cardwell, 1996).

Helps us to respond in a fast way to situations because we or others may have had a similar experience before.

Makes us ignore differences between individuals; therefore we assume things about others, that might not be true.
