Anyone that says no is not telling the truth! I am guilty!
It's something we're all guilty of. Not one person can honestly say they haven't done it. It's not necessarily done out of badness, I think it's just something we're almost preconditioned to do.
So in answer to our question, yes I am guilty of stereotyping, show me someone who isn't!
I have noticed, to my dismay, that many stereo-types are there for good reasons. I used to think that all stereo-typing was bad and should be abolished. Now, after many years of seeing them come into play, I realize that they are both a preconditioning AND a result of observations. This DOES NOT mean that all stereo-types are true. Nor indeed are they all true of everyone who resembles the stereo-type. They do however, fairly often, contain some basis in fact.
Yes, I am sometimes guilty of doing it. Yes, I do find that it is sometimes appropriate. No, I do not find this to be a good thing.
Of course. I am fond of sterotypes. They are easy pathways to getting a better view of a persons personality. However, they are never completely correct. So the better question when looking at someone would be "where is the stereotype wrong?"
Are you a blonde female? Are you an ignorant liberal defending Obama's economic record?...then yes. However, I don't have a problem with stereo-types because I have no control over how others act. I cannot be held responsible for others acting in a stereo-typical fashion. I would say if people do not wish to be stereo-typed then don't act a specific way. I'm stereo-typed as a mean woman hating greedy WASP American capitalist. And my general response is -- and so.... what's your point?
yes, because a lot of times they hold their weight. I'm delighted when I discover that I was wrong about someone that I've stereotyped

Are you ever able to stay off the Internet for even just one whole day?This question came to me after another hubber answered another question about being on-line each and every day and how hard it is to not get on-line, even for one day. Do you find it very difficult to not be on-line for...

Is anybody else irritated that when answering a question, you get told the answer is too short?I have tried answering a few questions, and while I am not just writing yes or no, I apparently don't have enough words. I had a 6 word answer and they wouldn't accept it. Do you think that forces a...

You guys - I posted this in the Questions section, but because it turned into a full-blown discussion, HubPagers advised me to move it to Forums. Here it is:"Cult" is defined as a system of beliefs that doesn't work, but people cling to it because they fear "eternal hell"...
