Answer each question in 100 to 150 words related to those stereotypes:

• What are the positive aspects of the stereotypes, if any?

When thinking of stereotypes, I can only think of one positive aspect. Positive stereotypes that make a group looks good is the only positive aspect that comes to mind. For an example, the stereotype all Asians are smart can be a positive aspect. Even though we know this is not true, I am sure that there are some Asians who are proud to have this stereotype associated with them. I would be proud to be a part of a category of people that had a positive stereotype because even if the generalization does not apply to me, at least others will think it does. This makes all members of the group look good on a very broad perspective.

• What are the negative aspects of stereotypes?

Several negative aspects of stereotyping come to mind when thinking about these aspects. One negative aspect of stereotypes is that something you observe can be a false representation of what is the norm. Stereotypes are unreliable, exaggerated generalizations about all members of a group that do not take individual differences into account. The definition states that they are both unreliable and exaggerated. When generalizations are made alone people’s feelings can get hurt, so you can only imagine how it makes one feel to hear a exaggerated generalization about themselves. Stereotypes can also make people feel start to believe in them when they constantly hear certain stereotypes and start to live up to the negative generalization. This can happen especially when the individual does not have a mentor or role model to look up to, that proves the stereotype wrong.

Appendix H • What has been the status of women in the United States throughout history? Throughout history American women have been subjected to such stereotypes that they are the weaker sex and are incapable of performing work that requires physical labor or intellectual reasoning.
