Bloom states: “And it is subject to bias- both laboratory studies and anecdotal experiences show that empathy flows most for those who look like us, who are attractive and who are non-threatening and familiar” (“Empathy Can Lead” 1). Empathy’s flaw that is bias makes empathy a lackluster guide to moral action. This bias can lead to unfair and hasty assumptions, which in turn, obstructs truth and reason. One’s empathy could easily be turned unfairly for or against other people due to the bias that empathy causes. The assumption that empathy does not lead to bias is simply not true because the emotion that comes from empathy leads to bias.
Unfortunately, stereotypes are used to give a negative portrayal to a certain group and tends to dehumanize the way of that group’s lifestyle, due to the truth being exaggerated. People tend to confuse misconception being the same as a stereotype, but in reality misconceptions originate from stereotypes, but are false
The third theme one could argue is “The Phoniness of the Adult World” or rather just the adult world in general. Holden doesn 't like adults that much is clear but there is a underlying meaning to this I believe. With the context of the author one could argue that holden does not only does not trust them and thinks that they are fake. Weather It be the way they talk or the way they act he seems to think that the way they are expressing themselves is a lie unlike himself who is “ perfect”. He often, I feel like, wants to understand them.
Unfortunately, there are those who treat people horribly as if being different is such a bad thing, when in all reality, its not. Who are you? What makes you feel as though your life is better than someone else 's, that it 's worth more? People fail to realize some things as time goes on. As their reality becomes known for people putting them down because of their differences .
A stereotype will have some part of the truth within it however it has evolved to become an over-generalized statement. A stereotype would be saying that women are not as smart as men. While in one point of time this was true, since women did not have all the education opportunities. This no longer retains the reality it one had. Misconceptions are commonly mistaken as stereotypes, however, the main difference between the two is a misconception is brought out of thin air.
1.3 Is the suffering good? Normally, suffering is considered as bad in the sense that if there is no suffering, the human life be better than the present situation. So suffering in human life, in itself gives a negative connation, because sufferings are evil in itself. And no one really and voluntarily accepts suffering. Here different kinds of opinions come from different people, because everyone takes the reality of suffering in a different way.
The problem with In-Group bias is that favoring and special treatment we give to tjose within our groups, is unfair-because we are not giving equal treatment to those belonging to other groups, whom we classify as 'out group'. Consequently , it is an evident reason for discrimination,even being more problematic and dangerous than outright hosility and prejudice. Human beings prefer those who are similar and familar.We feel a 'oneness' with those who we share norms,customs,culture-etc;.And the in-group bias we do does lead to discrimination.We give preferences,leniency,special treament ,perks and so much more.Examples being; job hiring, promotions,preferances,gradings and the like.Henri Tajfel (Bitish Social Psychologist) had even conductednan expirment to uncover and display the honest patterns behind in-group bias.In short the expirment -school boys were shown a series of slides with varying number of dots.Said boys were assigned as 'underestamitors' and 'over-estamitors' were than given another task to work on-alone.Here,they could give the other points.The boys ended up assigning
Thus, the outgroup bias includes negative categorizations, feelings, or ideas about people who are not part of our ingroup. Outgroup biases also mean the person associates more desirable and positive traits to their in-group members as opposed to out-group members. Individuals also tend to overestimate the similarities within groups and the dissimilarities between groups. That means the person sees the individuals in another group as being very alike (out-group homogeneity effect), but they see the differences between separate groups as being much greater than they actually are. B.
Secondly, ethnocentrism accepts ones group’s norms, values and behaviours seen as moral, good and proper where as those of groups that differ from one’s own often are seen as immoral, wrong, and improper. Thirdly, it leads people to exaggerate group differences and ethnocentric cultural groups see themselves as superior to other groups, which are treated, as inferior. It also brings about negative affective reactions to out groups such as distrust, hostility, and contempt. Furthermore, it impedes communication and blocks the exchange of ideas and skills among peoples. Gudykunst (2003) imply that ethnocentrism is lower in countries with strong belief in tolerance of others, harmony with others than in countries with a sense of cultural superiority, respect for
But this too is wrong. Many people with autism cope well with structured conversations (which are the kind generally required in a working environment) and are very open to learning social skills, which can be easily acquired through appropriate training. It is also wrong to think that autistic people are all introverted and don’t like being with people. While many are like this, there are also large numbers who are naturally extroverts and love being with people. They are the ones who suffer most from rejection by society and prolonged periods of
Nicknames aren 't alway positive, though. Many are also negative. People get the, because of their personality trait, what their hobbies are, or how they look. They can be negative if you 're making fun of someone. But the good thing is that they can be good.
One of the weaknesses of ENTJ 's is that they can react in a volatile manner when under extreme stress. Don 't do well-sharing credit with other people. Tend to want their exploits and endeavors to be in the limelight. The natural drive to be a leader can hinder sharing responsibilities. Difficulty expressing love and affection.
