"Stereotypes" are preconceptions or prejudices which can lead us to:
  • A
    mis-judge individuals even if we have contact with them.
  • B
    develop better teamwork by standardizing procedures.
  • C
    communicate non-verbally with a stranger.
  • D
    act in the same manner in all situations and thus assuring stability.
A stereotype is a fixed, over generalized belief about a particular group or class of people. By stereotyping we infer that a person has a whole range of characteristics and abilities that we assume all members of that group have. Groups are often stereotyped on the basis of sex, gender identity, race and ethnicity, nationality, age, socioeconomic status, language, and so forth. Stereotyping can lead to pre-judging and mis-judging individuals even if we have contact with them.
