Question and answer
Do you think it is human nature to categorize people? Why or why not?
It is certainly not human nature to drop a hate crime on somebody or to have hatred towards somebody simply because of the social groups that they belong to. [ It is however, human nature to judge, label, and categorize people especially when we do not have much actual information to go on. Saying that you are a “non-judgmental” person does not change this. Being a “good person” does not
change this. It is not actually about you, it is about your brain and how it functions. There are whole big bunches of things that your brain does without your participation and without your permission, this is just one of them…regardless of your aspirations to be non-judgmental, your brain is always going to be relentlessly judgmental. A big part of D&I is about pushing back on this and working intentionally to make sure that our decision making about people is more based on fact and less based on fiction. We have learned a great deal about the human brain in the past decade and this information desperately needs to find its way into HR, D&I, leadership and organizational development and other related disciplines. ]

Do you think it is human nature to categorize people? Why or why not?
Weegy: Well, it is human nature. It is an evolutionary trait. [ We judge everything by its appearance. By saying "don't say human nature", you are eliminating the only correct answer. - - - Maybe you are after something along these lines: People judge others by their appearance because they are either unwise or they don't know better.

Do you think it is human nature to categorize people? Why or why not?
Weegy: Yes it is human nature to categorize people or a group , because it is the way human being think. There is too much information to take in in the world. [ Human minds have to automatically make certain groupings or it will mean spending many hours pondering a situation that should only take seconds to resolve.Categorizing gives a human being a feeling of power. Putting something in a category can often help human being predict its actions. That gives an advantage. Of course, over doing it and making gross generalizations will backfire, but so many times a day, categorizations works. /question/index?qid=20070118213952AA55A3S ] (More)
