Why do people stereotype ? Dont you see how stupid it is ?
When a person stereotypes they leave the door wide open for their stereotype to be proven absolutely wrong. There is always the wild card (maybe even a few of them...maybe more) that will be the total opposite in the group that is being stereotyped. Therefore making the stereotyper seem like the biggest idiot.

The title of this thread should be "Why does everyone stereotype?"

Would have been funnier. Me thinks.
Do not believe anything I say.

stereotyping has and is an essential tool that has allways been implemented.

it serves a great purpose, ofcourse there will allways be exceptions, but its about the MAJORITY not the exceptions.

Human beings seek to identify and differentiate themselves from others, naturally. Stereotyping is often the result. There is nothing stupid about it, until it is carried to the extreme.

Re: Why do people stereotype ? Dont you see how stupid it is ?
I'm only going to answer that question you asked in the title of the thread.

People have been trained to do exactly that.

Remember where it comes from in practice, "professionals".

Remember that the "people" have been trained to look to professionals for answers.

Remember that is professionals tell you the truth that they put you on even footing with them and thus loose their "head of you" status.

Replace "professionals" with "experts" and it's still the same answer.

So the real question is this, Why do people listen to "professionals" and "experts" as though they magically know more than the rest of us are capable of figuring out?"

How many times to those people have to prove how wrong they are before the world full of idiots stop listening to them? It seems tha answer to that is it doesn't matter how often they are wrong, people are addicted to their lies.

Stereotypes may be encouraged by one's family or friends, but they are only accepted by those who are too lazy to think.
