Stereotypes can be fun and sometimes informative. Just check it out.


We all have prejudices and we all wonder what OTHER nations (secretly) think about US. Maybe you have no idea about a country and want to know about a particular nationality. Maybe you go on holiday and want to have some information in advance, but rather want to have some fun than reading boring travel guides.

Stereotype (A Very Rough) Definition


Stereotypes are ideas we have about a group* of people. They can be based on true facts, but can also be only crude assumptions. While stereotypes are often seen as something negative, they are also a part of the process of us making sense of the world. Since our capacity to understand the world is limited, we use patterns to classify things around us. Language is one of the very first means of structuring our experience and to give meaning. Patterns help us to maintain some order in a world, which otherwise would be completely incomprehensible chaos. Stereotypes are part of a classification system that we apply on a daily basis. Although they might stand in the way of us appreciating other individuals sometimes, to have expectations can generally support us moving around in a diverse world. Without any prior ideas we would get lost all the time.
What is important to understand is that stereotypes are dynamic ideas, which change just like the world around us changes in constant interaction. They often discriminate and therefore offend, but this is what our cognitive process does.. human beings are not capable of imagining infinite variations. We are limited beings with limited brains, although sometimes our imagination seems unlimited.
* In order to be called a group, it is often enough that we think of people as a group. They may not have anything in common and we might only imagine them as a community. Although in our case they may actually share one thing objectively - a common (state) nationality.
