Question and answer
what relationship does stereotype and pejudice have.
Some authors take prejudices and stereotypes to be synonymous, while others define a prejudice as a negative stereotype. A stereotype may be positive (e.g. “the French are very elegant” or “people with glasses are intelligent”). [ Stereotypes are created on the basis of simplifications, exaggerations or contortions of the truth, and the generalisation and representation of certain cultural attributes as “natural” (e.g. “gypsies have vagrancy and irresponsibility in their blood and are never going to want to work”). Generalisation: Generalisation is linked to stereotyping by virtue of an
exaggerated lumping together of perceptions (most frequently the character of individual persons) which is not supported by sufficient experience or which is used in an unsuitable context. Categories: The overall perception we have of the properties and character of certain groups, which we fall back upon in our conduct and behaviour. Prejudice this involves the attribution of properties (usually negative) to people in advance without our knowing the people. Sometimes, a prejudice is defined as a negative stereotype. A prejudice contains a negative evaluation or assessment, and is the manifestation of a negative relationship. ]
