There is an endless list of common stereotypes found in U.S. culture. The following are just a few:

Blonde people are not smart.

Caucasian men do not dance well.

Overweight people are lazy.

Women are emotional and men are not.

Males are better at math than females.

It is important to recognize the existence of a stereotype. As you learn that certain behaviors and actions cannot be generalized to an entire group of people, then you are more likely to treat others as individuals.

For this assignment, do some research to find an article that discusses one of the stereotypes listed above or one not on the list. Respond to the following questions:

Describe the stereotype. Do you know anyone who fits the stereotype?

Do you know someone who does not fit the stereotype?

How might someone stereotype you? Would that be a valid way to describe you? Is this the way you want people to view you? Explain your response.

One is need to consider that there is no evidence which link that hair colour with intelligence that person has. So the idea that blonde persons are less intelligent is a stereotype which has been stuck because people have generalized. Some scientist created a myth that some races or can say particular hair colour people are less intelligent that other persons or races. One of the famous scientists, James Watson who had helped to discover the structure of DNA talked regarding this new. However many of the scientist debate/ argued the same, they interpret that most of ours DNA’s are same it implies that we can be just as intelligent as someone else. They state that 99 % DBA in human being are same i.e only difference is of 1%, which show we are more similar than we think (imascientist.org.uk,2015).
