What are the positive aspects of stereotypes, if any? There is no positive aspects of stereotypes in any form because judging others by sterotypes is wrong and gives people the wrong ideas about a group of people baised on looks. There is no positives in grouping people all into one category and leaving no room for individuality.

...Steinberg Stereotypes Two story plots from famous shows today can really show how our society looks at different races. Stereotypes can be seen very well in particularly “Everybody Hates Chris” and “George Lopez.” In both of this series, the writers make it a huge focus on how stereotypes are given to people with a certain race. Both shows I will analyze to show the positive and negative stereo types that are shown. Everybody Hates Chris is a show that many ethnic groups can connect and relate to. The show is about an African American 13 year old that lives in the projects of New York City. After leaving their old house, the family moves to the “nicer” side of Bed Stuy during a crack epidemic. Instead of going to his local high school, his parents force him to go an all-white high school in the safer part of the city. Chris doesn’t want to go because he will be the only black kid and doesn’t know anybody at the school. During the first day of school Chris is walking down the hallway when a white classmate steps on his shoes and knocks over his textbooks. Next the classmate insults Chris by saying “nice shoes bojangles” and Chris immediately replies “Bojangles? , that’s not what your mother was calling me when I was tap dancing in her pants last night .” The crowd around them gasps in shock and the classmate instantly lands a punch on Chris right in the stomach and falls on the principle. Right after he falls, the principal suspends Chris from school for fighting (Rock,...

...Movies have a huge contribution over societies. Some movies try to draw a picture that completely deceives and tricks people into believing in the concept that they try to distribute. In addition to that, movies may support an impression or a stereotype. But on the contrary, sometimes they may disprove it by some way or another. The dictator movie which has been published at 2012 by the director Larry Charles, who is of American origins, is a living example of how producers may use their power into supporting an impression that a lot of people already believe in. In this movie, Larry Charles had showed that Arabs are hairy, rich, terrorists, who find a huge importance in sexual intercourse with women. Moreover, Charles had supported these stereotypes by using humour and sarcasm as weapons to accomplish delivering those ideas to the spectators. Arabic music was used as a theme of the movie in order to stir the viewers into the Arabic region. Charles was creative in mixing between the Arabic theme represented by the music and the ideas that he wants to plant into people’s heads. In the beginning of the movie, he started by shooting the birth of the main character, Haffaz Aladdin, emphasizing over the amount of hair he had, reaching into the point that Arabs are hairy human beings in nature. Beards were one of the director’s techniques that have been used in building up to the conclusion that Arabs in general are leaning toward terrorism. Not to mention that, the main actor who...

Stereotypes

...STEREOTYPES A stereotype is a rigid, widely held prototype about the general characteristics of a group of people. Many stereotypes are about racial and ethnic groups, age groups, and the sexes. Other stereotypes have to do with such acquired characteristics as education or occupation. Stereotypes of accountants and engineers hold that both groups have poor social skills, and a common stereotype of people with MBA degrees is that these people are arrogant and overly concerned with the bottom line. Stereotypes cause problems for at least two reasons. First, because they are so general, it it risky to apply them to particular people. Many individuals differ from stereotypes applied to them. A German man who spent many years in Japan and spoke Japanese fluently found that people in that country often did not understand him , only if he spoke to them in peson. No one has had trouble understanding him when he spoke over the telephone. Apparently, am assumption that foreigners cannot learn Japanese-that is, a stereotype about foreigners –prevented people from understanding this man if they saw he was a foreigner. A person who repeatedly makes mistakes using stereotype may not have been exposed to other groups enough to have developed accurate prototypes. Another source of problem is that because stereotypes are widely held, they are sometimes hard to notice. If you aren’t aware you have a particular stereotype, you cannot check whether it truly applies to a particular person or......

...Crash. It is the perfect analogy of how we as a human race deal with life, people and our own experiences. Physical characteristics and racial differences may be interpreted as two distinguishing traits that separate us. I think it's what keeps us apart. That leaves several abstract questions that the film Crash illustrates. What are the origins of personal prejudice? Do individual experiences fuel standing stereotypes? Is it easier to perpetuate existing stereotypes because "things will never change?" Can people battle internal struggles within their own ethnic group? What prohibits us from overcoming these prejudices? The writers of the Crash managed to extend my viewing experience beyond the 90 minute film, thus forcing me to analyze my own prejudices and racial stereotypes towards others. I always thought that racism occurred as a result of a person's upbringing. If your parents were racist, there is a good chance that you will be a racist too. At first glance, Matt Dillon's character exhibits characteristics typical of this theory. Dillon exhibited a close bond with his father and later, we discover the roots of his racism. I naively assumed that Dillon was absorbing external cues from his father regarding his attitudes towards black people. It turns out that his father was not racist towards black people. It was Dillon who, in combination with his father's negative experiences and his own as a member of the LAPD, formed his own perceptions towards blacks. Another......

...How Stereotypes Affect Us In this video Claude Steele tells about his research on stereotype threat and the way it affects us. Each of us has social identities such as gender, age, race, sexuality etc. Stereotype threat is an experience of being in situation or doing something for which a negative stereotype about one of your identities is relevant. African American can be seen as a violent person in a neighborhood with predominantly white people or white student can be perceived as a racist in class that is predominantly nonwhite, that are some of examples of stereotype threat. Dealing with things, because of particular identity in particular place that what makes the identity real. We often have fear to be judged in terms of negative stereotype. That can make us sad and confused, but also it can affect our behavior and performance! One of experiments was related to stereotype that women are not as good in math as men. Both women and men were taking math exam sitting in one room. Women showed worse results than men. That happened, because women were worried about this stereotype (often unconsciously), so they have to put double efforts to perform under this pressure. But when before test participants were told that in this particular test everyone (men and women) do equally all the time, women get same good results as men! Same situation was with IQ test for white and black participants. Black got lower results when were told that this is a test to measure intelligence...

Stereotypes

...Stereotypes are things that we as humans wish we could sometimes avoid. Many of us hold stereotypes with conviction and many of us hold stereotypes that can be easily shaped through open minded experience. Making assumptions about another person, especially one you’ve never personally met, is essentially judging a book by its cover. Whether certain stereotypes are true or not for a given person or group, they actually have a significant effect on the identities of both the person being stereotyped and the person stereotyping. Having a presence on the internet as a YouTube video creator and as a rising natural bodybuilder, I am actively viewed and stereotyped by thousands of people on a daily basis. Many people are convinced that I took steroids or diuretics to get to the (far from amazing in my opinion) muscularity and conditioning that I displayed in many pictures I took in 2011. I am stereotyped as being obsessed about everything under the umbrella of bodybuilding, from food to training. I’ve learned that all of these stereotypes that I deal with online and offline help shape my identity, but fortunately in positive ways. “Roids!” That’s one of the most frequent words a successful bodybuilder hears. Why in the world would I want to be associated with taking steroids or any performance or cosmetic enhancing drugs? There’s something special about being a pure, 100% natural bodybuilder that differentiates it from being one of the big guys you’ve seen before in...

...still hold some preconceptions about people, things or ideas, something that doesn’t change. We become victims of stereotypes, both by projecting them onto others and by being stereotyped by others. Whether we believe them or not, we have got certain images in our minds that we firmly hold on to and unconsciously refuse to let go. Stereotypical image is a composite made of different sources and forms. Therefore, a strong distinction needs to be made between an image and a picture, the former hasn’t got a material form, it is intangible. Accordingly, a stereotypical image would be made of physical pictures, drawings, paintings, but also a mental or acoustic image, so it essentially becomes a combination of different types of images. If we were to call upon an image of ‘a housewife’ or ‘an alcoholic’ it would elicit certain images and pictures in our minds, that we have acquired throughout our lives. Stereotypes are developed through various apparatuses of newspapers, movies etc. We live with them whether we believe them or not, they construct a significant part of popular culture. Etymologically stereotype was a certain kind of plate or a mould, which was being used to reproduce a newspaper or a magazine. Over a period of time it acquired a meaning of a fixed image and this is essentially what an idea of a stereotype is today. In today’s society the word stereotype is almost always a term of abuse. However, when Walter Lippmann formulated the term, he did not want it to be......

...small. A recent survey in Fortune (Fisher 1992) reported that only 4.8 percent of top managerial positions were held by women, compared to 2.9 percent in 1986. One widely accepted explanation for this small number of female executives is the persistence of negative stereotypes about women as managers. Attitudes about the role of women in society may have changed dramatically, but women are still perceived as being less suited than men for managerial positions. Such preconceptions about female managers may cause firms to underutilize a significant part of the work force. By the year 2000 women will represent nearly half of the total labor force, yet discrimination based on sex continues to occur in such areas as performance appraisal, mentoring opportunities, pay, and available career paths. Given the low birth rate in the early and middle 1970s and the current shortage of skilled, motivated workers, organizations simply cannot afford the effects of discrimination based on stereotypes of about 50 percent of their work force. THE STEREOTYPE OF FEMALE MANAGERS The existence of actual differences between male and female managers has been challenged for some time in the research literature, but strongly held stereotypes are resistant to change. Just how are female managers regarded differently than their male counterparts? In a study by Heilman et al. 0989), researchers asked male managers to characterize both male and female managers. The results indicated a tendency to......

...Common Stereotypes Lori Woodard PHI 103 Aaron Novinger May 7, 2012 Running Head: Common Stereotypes Stereotyping in generally is characterized as a way of discrimination through prejudicial preconceived perceptions. It mainly consists of hasty generalizations about an individual based on these prejudices. Some examples of common misconceptional prejudices are women are the weaker sex, Jewish people are obsessed with money, and Blacks are more likely to be anti-social, violent, and more likely to commit a crime. (Rivers, 2011)In my lifetime, I have faced many stereotypes. Of the many that are out there, the three main stereotypes I still face today are gender stereotyping, social and economic status stereotyping, and ethnical stereotyping. Gender stereotyping has been one of the most common stereotypes I have had to face. This is because I had been born a female. The most common stereotypes about woman are they are the weaker sex, they are better barefoot and pregnant, and their place is to raise the children and to stay in the kitchen. This perception...
