Stereotypes I. Characteristics a. Over-generalized - (All athletes are…all frat guys are…) b. Extreme – No one described neutrally. Really dumb or really smart. Nothin in between c. Generally negative – not typically seen as a compliment. Even things that are phrased positively are seen negative. d. Simplistic – We don’t see the background to problems. e. Kernel of Truth – Somewhere along there is some truth to the stereotype. f. Self confirming – Start believing what group you are in you will start doing what the group does. II. Stereotypes lead to expectations a. Actions reflect and create stereotypes – If someone likes you you can’t do bad and if someone doesn’t like you and you do something bad its always wrong. If you have a negative stereotype you don’t get credit. i. Language – Language will create stereotypes (ex. Man that sleeps around is a player but a girl is a hoe) ii. Classroom – Many of the stereotypes happen in class.
