Any ideas for generalizations?

I have to list 5 and use one.

A generic generalization is the most common type. All dogs bite. Here is a good definition.

Generic generally means pertaining or appropriate to large classes or groups as opposed to specific. In particular it may mean:

Generic mood, a grammatical mood used to make generalized statements like Snow is white
Generic role-playing game system, a framework that provides rule mechanics for any setting—world or environment or genre

Using this definition and the examples, see if you can come up with five that would be fun to write about. Repost and we will be happy to help.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm still having trouble thinking of a topic. I know what a generalization is, but I can't think of one that I can really expand on and support.

I ran into a long list of negative ones (All women are bad drivers, americans are ignorant) but I think I need to find some positive ones to list since I have to figure out a way to support the generalization. If it was to argue against a generalization, I don't think i'd be having such an issue.

Ugh, I'm lost.

How about- teenagers are better drivers than senior citizens.

Women make better physicians than men.



Or even ...

Senior citizens are better drivers than teenagers.

    Anyway, since you posted this question last year, you must have got some idea.. care to share?

    I was thinking along the lines of "History repeats itself," but I can't really think of anything substantial to support it.
