Stereotyping no doubt serves a purpose at times, however, it is up to the individual to get to know either the other individual or members of that group to determine if their perceptions are correct. Most stereotypes probably tend to convey a negative and positive impression (Clark, R., Anderson, N.B., Clark, V.R., and Williams, D.R, 1999). Positive stereotypes are good qualities that are assigned to groups of people based on various characteristics, including their race, nationality and sexual orientation among others. The negative stereotypes are present regarding a specific group, group members are likely to become anxious about their performance, which may hinder their ability to perform at their maximum level, behavior, judgment.

Why do people label and group other people? We label and group other people in order to give them a distinct identity in the society we are in. I believe we label them or mentally sort them into a certain group so that we know how to act around them. It's something most people do automatically to simplify their social interactions.

One criterion is not enough to accurately classify abnormal behavior.
Prejudice; Is It Something We Should Still Be Tolerating? Although there are many different types of people in our world today, not everyone is or will be accepted or tolerated; there are still those people who are judged either because of how they look, act or are the subject of unsubstantiated beliefs and rumors that are circulated and perpetuated by people who are uninformed, or afraid of what they perceive as a threat cause someone is different. While we know that prejudice exists, all too often it goes on around us, we may even turn a blind eye, not wanting to get involved, or worst, have that negative attention aimed at us or a loved one. We may have even added to a situation unknowingly by our attitudes and behaviors towards a group or individual that isn’t part of a social group based on a bias belief of the group we ourselves may be a part of. So how can we avoid this behavior if and when we recognize it as such?
ACTIVITY ONE – PSY 2301 – Measuring a Construct People are defined usually by their behavior; how they act in everyday and even non-everyday situations. This is especially true when interacting with society as a whole. Depending on the person, they can be various types of socializers depending on their blirtatiousness.

It can be because of a something that has happened to you in the past, or it can be something you get diagnosed with as a child or as grown up. But in the end, no matter what kind of handicap you have, some people will judge you, and some might even change their behaviour around you. As person with more knowledge about this specific topic then most people in my age, I know what some of the people with a handicap feel and what they think in some situations.
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs Growth needs influence personality formation in many different ways. When a person has more of one thing that is shown in the pyramid the person's personality will be different than the other person that has less of something that is on the pyramid.

That is because the most people are likely to be in that category.
