Prejudice and Stereotyping

What does the word prejudice mean to you?

Prejudice: Formal Definition

  • Prejudice is an attitude of closed mindedness which allows a person to prejudge another negatively without any knowledge of that person.

  • Prejudice is frequently based on emotion, not on reason or fact. It is the hatred one feels towards another person for no concrete reason.

Gordon Allport’s Five Levels of Prejudice:

  • 1. Name calling: the stereotyping of an entire group.

Name Calling

  • Name calling is one form of labeling or stereotyping.

  • 2. Isolation: the separation of the group from society

  • 3. Discrimination: legal isolation

  • 4. Physical attack

  • 5. Extermination



  • Stereotyping is a basic form of prejudice.

Stereotype: Formal Definition

  • Stereotype is a generally accepted opinion or fixed notion of a person that is believed without investigation.

Stereotype: Formal Definition
