I think that in the article author mentioned really important thing – stereotypes aren’t only bad, they ‘give us broadly accurate information, even if all the details don’t line up’. For sure I don’t want to justify any bullies, any people who prejudge but thinking stereotypical is something we all do sometimes. I think we should process information from the world really consciously so even if we look at someone and we are thinking that for example that he is too fat so probably he is lazy and he only eats fast food we can quickly change our mind – first we don’t know why he is fat, and the second it is not our business.
