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 effect group relations by negatively impacting collective self-esteem in relation to our feelings of worth or pride. Because 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:
Unique child is very selfish. Depending how the child was raised, not every unique child will be selfish.
