1. Reflection and analysis (3 pages)

Think of some stereotypes others may have of people from your country. Write down a couple of examples, and answer the following questions:

  • Where do you think these stereotypes come from?
  • Are they accurate, based your experiences in real life?

Now think of a concrete situation where you met someone from a group to which you have attached strong stereotypes. Analyze the situation according to the five perceptual biases from Greenberg & Baron (cited in Jaakko Lehtonen's article).
