What positive or negative stereotypes do you hold about different jobs and careers? In our society there are stereotypes placed on every ethnic group in our nation. Some of these stereotypes are positive but most of them are negative. Jobs are and careers are the same the sanitation workers are always dirty, the secretary is always pretty, the computer geek is always head down trying to hack into something he is not supposed to do. How has your cultural background, gender, and/or self-concept influenced your generalized view (i.e., stereotype )? I consider myself to be a country gentleman background of Military for 20 years and raised by two educators, I would like to think that I am open minded to most situations, and I am able to adapt to almost any situation. Have you ever had an opportunity to test any of these generalizations? Testing is really not an effective term, but realization was an important learning curve, the school of hard knocks comes around every now and again and just doesn’t fit the generalization. Did your stereotypes match reality?
