When reading, what angle should you hold the book in relation to your eyes?
You should always read with your text at a 75 degree angle. Especially never read it when it is laid flat for this not only strains the eyes and neck, but will significantly slow down your reading rate.
What is the evolutionary basis for a stereotype and why are they necessary?
A stereotype is nothing more than a shortcut that the brain uses to process a situation quickly. A stereotype is just one form of what is referred to as a heuristic, or in essence, a mental shortcut. Because our brain is constantly inundated with so much information, it creates generic shortcuts and assumptions based on previous information in order to make decisions quickly. Rather than having to reprocess the information every time anything related to it comes up, it can judge a situation and help you react accordingly. This process is at the heart of all stereotypes, whether they are about people, situations, or anything. Particularly, this is advantageous in gauging potentially dangerous situations, and are necessary because they can help protect us. The instinct to run because you hear muffled footsteps of someone behind you when it’s dark outside and you’re alone in an alley in the bad part of town is nothing more than a stereotype or heuristic based on your situation and previous knowledge of what those ques might mean. So stereotypes are necessary in our daily lives for a variety of reasons, but it is up to the individual to be aware of what stereotypes that you are operating on, and if that information and associated behavior is based on accurate information and not just biased assumptions and generalities.
