Do you agree or disagree with this statement: Generalizations and stereotypes are logical standards to help with making decisions

I'm sort of debating this to myself.

No because your judging something before you know what it is based on something or someone completely different

Situational, I guess.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

That's a generalization, you know.

I totally agree. Sterotypes and Generalizations, represent a logical outcome, because they stem from a repeated result. So therefore if it's a sterotype, it's becasue it's happened alot, and becasue of that you can make a decision.

But that leads to preunderstandings and presuppositions that are most likely false.
I don't agree with the use of the word "logical' when referring to generalizations.

Situational. Some people/situations meet stereotypes, some don't. You'll have to decide then.

Of course, stereotypes are never always true, as you can never put a group of individuals in a box.


But on the other hand, there tends to be a reason for them, or they wouldn't exist, would they? But that's usually if they individual chooses to identify themselves as PART of the stereotype.
