Stereotyping is based on insensible prejudice. Therefore, people should make sensible efforts to overawed stereotyping. Stereotypes are displayed at societal, family and individual levels, and they are inspired by attitude, sociological styles, economic forces and cultural practices, emphasizes the said Association of Psychology in America.

Another reason people use stereotypes and misconceptions are to make one feel better about themselves by putting others down. All over the world there is thousands of stereotypes used everyday.

People that didn’t go to college hear these incorrect views that they are uneducated and are not successful in life from people who don’t even know them when the fact is they can have just as much success as one who received a degree. Misconceptions and stereotypes are quite similar as far as the definition of the two.
The short story “Cathedral” by Raymond Carver along with “Flight Patterns” by Sherman Alexie show those negative impacts of stereotypes that not only affect the victims of stereotyping but also change the characters’ personality negatively. The main characters in both stories dismiss and judge others based on their own perceptions about different types of people but in the end they realize that because of having the stereotypes so deep-rooted in their minds caused them trouble accepting the reality. Although these two stories are different, there’s one thing that they both contain. They both deal with characters that misjudge other people. The main character in “Cathedrals” is a perfect example of how the stereotypes can affect a person and his/her personality.

Stereotypes are also valued by the holder because they notice others who are different and assign a significant idea to that Other. They often aren’t behaviorally reinforced because stereotypes are often mental frames that are used to justify treating others differently, but the ‘treating others differently’ is an optional behavior. An example would be a white person crossing the street when they see a latinx person because their held stereotype is that latinx people are violent or lawless (the crossing street action would be a form of
Nowadays people get judged based on how they appear to the outside world, when did our world get so cruel that we often stereotype others based on how they present themselves , on what things they enjoy doing, or just off of a name. When did it start to be okay to limit people on their life or tell them what they can and can not due just because of the person they represent on the outside. There are just some things you can not learn in school and that is how to deal with the real world, they can help guide but not hold your hand during real life events. Whenever I think of stereotyping all I can think of is history and how much stereotyping has affected our world in such a distraining way.

Additionally, many citizens believe law enforcement officers handle cases differently based on an individual’s age, gender, race, or et cetera. Due to some police officers using their power to unconstitutionally punish a citizen, these situations result in harmful incidents due to it being mishandled.

Popular biases that exist are shaped by surroundings and socializations that one has been raised in, as discussed earlier. For example, a highly white area may view their counterparts as hostile, dangerous, criminal and concentrated in certain areas in which all crime occurs, and this may result in over policing (Sampson and Raudenbush 2004). This forces typical profiling and generalizations of crime on the basis of no real harm or threat. However, police are an institution that is present to protect “the people”, although “the people” has been subjectively shifted to support the popular belief or ideal while maintaining order (Sampson and Raudenbush 2004). According to a study on views of racism and unjust treatment, the majority of white individuals do not see racism as apart of law enforcement practices and that racism is not an issue within (Pew Research Center’s Social and Demographic Trends Project 2016) .
