Stereotyping, isn’t something new to our generation but has been around for as long as time can tell. Stereotypes come in many forms such as, races, genders, national groups, or other groups. Stereotypes are judgements based on a few obvious characteristics, which sometimes lead to unfair assumptions. Stereotypes affect many aspects of individuals’ lives, from how people are treated in social or professional situations to the manner in which civilians are dealt with by law enforcement and the judicial system. It can be hard to imagine the negative impact of a stereotype about a group that is falsely categorized.
Abstract This research work is a generalization of the investigated data and sources of the problem of stereotypes and prejudice towards people from different countries and nationalities. The primary objective of this study is to define the terms "stereotype" and "prejudice" for a better understanding of the problems arising in the communication and interaction between people. To demonstrate, as the examples in this paper will be presented to the main models of stereotypes that have developed in people's thinking during the existence of mankind as a whole.

Stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination are very different, although they all reflect each other in one way or another. Stereotyping is when individuals categorize people they observe by gender, age, ethnicity, religion and other social groupings; this is also called using cognitive schemas formed from preconceived expectations. So many negative labels have created a bias against stereotyping, but people forget that stereotyping is just a categorization. We use this to gather information about certain subjects. People differentiate male from female in such categories as traits, behaviors, physical characteristics, and occupations.
Stereotypes are usually formed based on an individual’s appearance, and gender that would put labels on people. The appearance of a person’s in general is one of the most important causes of stereotypes. People usually tend to stereotype a person from what they see and think. Most stereotypes probably tend to convey a negative impression. Stereotype has become a labels in America followed by discrimination year after year, but society still not educated enough to know what is good from bad.
To examine the problem of stereotypes and their impact on people, more information on this topic should be provided. Stereotype, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is „a widely held, but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing”. Studies show that people, who think of themselves as open and free of prejudice, are also the victims of the using stereotypes practice, because they are deeply rooted in our minds. There are, though not many, compared to the negative, possitive sides of stereotyping. Even though challenging stereotypes seem to be pointless, many people try.
We are all in this world together and like it or not, we are all each other has. Humans do not treat one another like we should, it 's disgraceful. Stereotyping is seeing someone and judging them in a way that isn 't necessarily true. The most common type of stereotyping is basing someone off of their looks. I may look at a person and be so quick to say ,” Oh she looks mexican because she brown” or ,” Oh he 's definitely rich because he 's white”.
Stereotype refers to the cognition aspect of feeling towards a given group of people. It is the picture that most people engulf in their minds about other people. However the picture painted by people with regard to other people is not necessarily a true depiction of the reality. Stereotypes hold the fixed view that people of a certain community or group exhibit specific character traits, which influence their behavior in general. Stereotypes as regards gender, refer to certain traits presumably adhered to males and females in the society, that define and distinguish these genders.
Stereotypes and misconceptions are seen wherever a person travels, wherever a person lives, and wherever a person sleeps--basically they are everywhere we go. Stereotypes are based on truths, that exaggerates a group and society bases the stereotype of that group. While misconceptions differ from stereotypes, misconceptions form from having stereotypes, are based from untruths and that group are incorrectly viewed by error. Stereotypes exist in order to monetize certain groups and strip them of their pride, not only are stereotypes negative, but it can be positive. Misconceptions exist due to the fact, that people do not have the level of education or the skills of critical thinking and rationalization and automatically assume without knowing the facts about a group.
Stereotypes are a oversimplified idea of a person, place or thing. As children are flourishing and thriving, information is being apprehended, this is why stereotypes are not a thing of the past.
