    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.

    Good question.

    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 smile
