Great job on your first answer.
In the second question, the word should be "affect" not "effect." Your answer should start -- "Stereotyping AFFECTS group . . ." Then -- omit "because," the semi-colon, and "as a result." It should read -- "If I use negative stereotypes to describe an ethnic group which I do not belong to, this will imply that my group is better than the other group."
In the third answer, do you mean "only child"? The word "unique" doesn't make any sense here.
What differentiates the act of grouping people from the act of stereotyping?
Grouping people is the process of uniting them into a group in terms of similarities.
On the other hand, stereotypes are usually based on assumption or generalization that someone makes on the characteristics of a particular group. Usually, the information may not necessarily fit all members of that group. For example, all Americans are rude and arrogant.
How can stereotyping effect group relations?
Stereotyping affects group relations by negatively impacting collective self-esteem in relation to our feelings of worth or pride. If I use negative stereotypes to describe an ethnic group, which I do not belong to; as a result, this will imply that my group is better than the group.
Give an example of a stereotype you find in your everyday life.
An example of a stereotype I find in my everyday life is the following:
An only child is very selfish. Depending how the child was raised, not every only child will be selfish.
Thanks Ms. Sue. How is the Summer so far. Have a great evening.
You're welcome, Rose. The summer is great.
I'll be on vacation from June 19 through June 23.
So you will not be online on those dates?
Will you be going anywhere special or you will just chill home?
I'll be at DisneyWorld in Orlando with one daughter, two granddaughters, and one honorary grandson. :-)
I won't be online from Thursday evening until Tuesday afternoon.
Do you live in Florida? I was there about 1 year ago with my two kids and a friend with her son. Enjoy it. Have turkey leg for me......
You need to remove Ms. Sue from YOUR first name. Only Ms. Sue's posts should have her name in them. Otherwise, you tend to confuse other people.
