Awesome thread! Love all the inspirational and thoughtful videos and am looking forward to watching! Thanks for sharing!

Ever heard of Williams Syndrome? A very eye-opening example of how reducing fear leads to more prosocial behaviours and less racial stereotyping.

"Most strikingly, individuals with WS exhibit highly gregarious social behaviour: they approach strangers readily and indiscriminately, behaving as if everybody were their friend. And, according to a study published today in the journal Current Biology, they are the only known group of individuals who do not form racial stereotypes.

Most of us stereotype others implicitly and automatically – we assume that the characteristics of an individual can be generalized to the group to which they belong, whether it be race, religion, social class or some other group. One factor thought to be important in the formation of stereotypes is fear – we give preferential treatment to those perceived to be like us, while being wary of those perceived to be different. Children with WS are socially fearless. "
