Examples of stereotypes
It is really important to first understand a few examples of stereotypes to get there. We always go through examples or case studies to have an understanding about a specific term. So I have gathered a few examples for a better understanding about ‘Stereotype’.
Every time we judge people for how they are and how do they do certain things without knowing anything about them, we are stereotyping them. We judge people for their race, ethnicity, gender, living standards and so on.
Stereotypes can be positive and negative both. Some stereotypes are healthy and help you grow while others let you down. Most of the time we take the word stereotype as a negative and a bad thing. It is because we have been disappointing people by judging them in the worst way possible. You will know yourself and you will be able to easily differentiate between positive and negative stereotypes when you go through the examples.
Let’s see if you can figure out.
