What is a schema, and does it contribute to stereotyping?
A schema is like a folder in your brain that holds information associated with a general idea. For example, a dog would be in your animal schema, and maybe your frightened schema if you are afraid of dogs. Schemas do contribute to stereotyping, as they are creating generalizations. If a child is someone to a lot of women who wear heels, when they hear the clicking sound in a hallway they will assume that a woman is walking nearby.
