All stereotypes get based off of a bit of truths that all group members similarly have. Whether it is behavior, attitude, or outward appearance. Stereotypes often get confused with prejudices, because like prejudices, stereotypes get based off of prior assumptions. Many also think that misconceptions are similar to stereotypes, but misconceptions are formed
Stereotyping allows people to infer that a person has many characteristics and assume their abilities. It leads to social categorization and places people in a group membership. The use of stereotypes is a way in which we simplify the social world. It reduce the amount of processing a person has to do when meeting a new person. Stereotypes affect inferences the absence of individuating information.
Stereotype is a thought or an unfounded belief that can be adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of doing things. Age stereotyping is commonly known as AGEISM. Ageism makes judgments about the actions, character and desires of people based on their age. Ageism has developed over many years as our society as a whole has put a greater value on youth than on aging. Stereotype is a thought that can be adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of doing things.
Stereotypes are usually formed when one person in a particular group acts or does something causing people to think just because one person in that group is like that, the whole group is. The older generation passes down stereotypes to the younger generations and instead of getting to know the group,
People use both as a second source of information to identify or understand others, however most of the time the information they undertake tend to be false. People have different cultures and religions and everybody is different from one to a another and this is where stereotype comes and tricks people. If a group of people have the same culture or internationally, it does not mean that they are the same socially and personally with same beliefs. Misconception however, does not include race, religion, gender and etc, it's based on how people look, for example, if they're smart, dump, nice or mean. For instance, people misunderstand that individuals who wear glass are smart which is not true, there is no evidence or studies to prove that it is correct, it just the thoughts that comes to a person mine.
Stereotypes are used by high schoolers and adults in order to reduce as much possible analization of a person. By assigning them to their designated group people can simply assume that a person has all of the characteristics of a member of a certain group. As simple as this may sound, social categorization can lead to misconceptions being formed about a person and can leave a negative image of this person. Misconceptions on the other hand, are a whole different story. Misconceptions are commonly used to assume characteristics of someone in a group.

Stereotype is a funny thing to talk about because it’s easy to make a joke out of it. But when the stereotype is true, it’s really hard to deny the fact that the stereotype is not true and most people, including Asians, think that all stereotype is true. Stereotypes work like a labeling to a specific ethnic groups or person and to be honest, labeling people is not good so in my opinion, I think that we shouldn’t use certain stereotypes to describe a person. Otherwise, it doesn’t affect us
Furthermore, our experiences in life are what aid in the creation of stereotypes and misconceptions. Therefore, why do people stereotype and create assumptions (misconceptions) about other individuals or groups? In order to process or try to comprehend why people do what they do or are who they are, mankind has a tendency to put a person 's characteristics, abilities, and appearances into categories of groups. Throughout the generations, there has been a dramatic increase of stereotypes and misconceptions about the male college students today.
