Discrimination can be caused by many factors. As I stated in the previous question, ”Prejudices and stereotyping are the ideas and thoughts people have about other groups of personss without regard to individual differences. I believe these lead to the actions of discrimination. The physical act of prejudice is discrimination.” An individuals upbringing plays a very important role in their outlook on prejudice and stereotypes. Also, television and friends have a hand in the ideas that are placed into an individual’s thoughts.
What are some of the ways groups of people are identified? There are several ways both good and bad that groups can be identified by such as race, culture, religion, class and ethnicity. These are the presets of which society is divided whether they like to admit or
There are other ways groups of people are identified as well such as age, disability status, physical appearance, and sexual orientation. People are identified in these groups to help with the growing number of people in the world, but some negative minded individuals use this as a way to discriminate against others.

Ignorance and fear are also strong influences simply because people fear what they do not know. Stereotyping may be more influential than anything else. Stereotypes are prevalent everywhere and in everything. When people are grouped into categories, regardless of what they might be, prejudice will most likely occur, and through prejudice comes discrimination. (Wright, 2013) • How is discrimination faced by one identity group (race,
Social Bias June 24, 2013 PSYCH 555 Social Bias Bias can be seen in many ways such as race, age, gender, and ethnicity (Fiske, 2010). Individuals that are bias believe what they are doing is okay. Types of bias consist of prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination. Bias can be performed by a group of people or by an individual (Fiske, 2010). This paper will cover the definition of prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination; explanation of difference between subtle and blatant bias, description of the impact bias has on individuals, and an evaluation of how to overcome bias.
We all have different likes and dislikes and we have different outlooks on life. All this and more is what makes us unique individuals. It’s these differences that will affect how we deal with certain situations, our openness and why we have resistance to certain thoughts or ideas. With these differences in mind, it is the requirement of the hypnotherapist to assess the client and devise a therapy strategy that meets their needs and will achieve the best outcome for them. We are all aware that the usual method of
Identifying our deepest emotions can be an accurate way of defining what it means to be human. Our innermost feelings, however, are mainly left unshared with our peers. This may be due to the fact that our feelings or reactions towards certain issues define who we are as individuals. Striving for acceptance and maintaining the social norm, many people leave things feelings bottled up. Many individuals fear that if they pour out their inner most feelings, they are left vulnerable and exposed to being judged by others.
People very often change their attitudes and behaviors to conform to the attitudes and behaviors of people they are around. One of the reasons for this conformity of attitude and behavior change is that we are highly concerned with what others think of us. Conforming to the normality of others is our normal human attempt to obtain information we do not have so we in essence are relying on that normality to be a reasonable strategy especially when we are uncertain about how we should be acting. The unfortunate aspect to this is we more often than not usually are misinterpreting how the typical person acts in certain situations, which in the end will contribute to other problems within our own behavior. As humans we possess an integral predisposition to imitate the actions of our family, and friends that are around us.
