Stereotype effect refers to the unconscious attribution of particular qualities to a member of a certain social group. It’s influenced by experience, and are based on learned associations between various qualities and social categories, including race or gender. Individuals' perceptions and behaviors can be affected by stereotype effect, even without the individuals' intention or awareness.
Students tend to fall victim to stereotype effect unconsciously exercised by their teachers. Once a student does poorly in his study, the case is often that he or she will be easily neglected or dismissed as unpromising and even hopeless in spite of their other outstanding merits. (for instance, their imagination, creativity, their communication ability… )
Stereotype effect often misleads interviewers making them think that female interviewees are intrinsically more vulnerable than male ones. They are unfairly considered less capable, flexible and creative.
(Less-good looking applicants are more likely to be considered less competent and less qualified.
Less-good looking suspects are less likely to receive sympathy and more easily identified as the real criminal by the public.)
(Uncivilized tourism behavior--中国人素质低)
Occurrences of impropriate tourism behavior home and abroad such as jumping the queue, spitting and littering around, making annoying noises, scratching and scrawling unsightly words, are frequently reported. They not only ruin the good mood for other travelers, but also are responsible for the formation of stereo-type against Chinese people. As implied by stereotype effect, one’s impression of a member can be extended to the group he belongs to.
