Group Stereotypes - Deepstash

Group Stereotypes

  • Anyone who’s ever spoken in front of a large audience or walked down a crowded city sidewalk can confirm this. Individuals within large groups are almost invisible. 
  • What your brain extracts automatically from a group is an overall assessment, not its distinct individuals. 
  • Our stereotypes go wrong, three wicked ways matter most: getting too little information, defining groups by their differences, and being unable to observe the true causes of group differences directly.
