Question and answer
how is stereotyping not negative?
To stereotype can be destructive, but not to stereotype can be stupid. [ If you were walking down a dark alley, would you be more worried by an old lady with a Zimmer frame or a couple of young men in hoodies? To walk out into the world without stereotypes is impossible. Not all stereotypes are bad, nor do all lead to action. The idea that they must do so is to undermine a belief in the
capacity of people to exercise self-control. ]

Although stereotyping generally has a negative connotation, it could help us in some ways. When is stereotyping not negative?
Weegy: Stereotyping is often based on statistical discrimination: Making assumptions about what an individual may be like based on the characteristics of a group they belong to. [ While it may at times be unfair to the individuals who are stereotyped, it can lead to efficiencies overall that would not be possible without such stereotyping. Often the information about any single individual is either not available or too difficult or expensive to obtain. Stereotyping allows someone to make decisions with some accuracy based on easy to access information. Health risk is a great example. We screen people for certain ailments or problems that would not be practical to do to everyone based on their stereotype, such as age. As a result many conditions are identified and treated that would not otherwise be. Insurance companies stereotype all the time which allows them to more accurately assess their financial risk. ] (More)

How would you approach a tourit group and what would you communicate to them to ask for help?
Weegy: If you speak the same language, then I would just ask nicely for some help. If you did not speak the same language, I would hope someone in the group spoke it. User: Provide a brief example of how we might notice something about someone in our current or future career, then we assign other characteristics to them without actually interacting, and how those assumptions could cause problems. Weegy: That would mean one is jumping to conclusions, instead of using academic integrity. (More)
