  Stereotype - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Often a stereotype is a negative caricature or inversion of some positive characteristic possessed by members of a group, exaggerated to the point where it becomes repulsive or ridiculous.
Stereotypes are common in the world of drama, where the term is often used as a form of dramatic shorthand for "stock character".
For example, the stereotypical devil is a red, impish character with horns, bifurcated tail, and a trident, whilst the stereotypical salesman is a slickly-dressed, fast-talking individual who cannot usually be trusted.

 Ethnic stereotype - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An ethnic stereotype is a generalized representation of an ethnic group, composed of what are thought to be typical characteristics of members of the group.
The use of stereotypes often leads to misunderstanding and hurt feelings, because they may be either untrue generalizations, truthful but unflattering generalizations, or truthful generalizations about a group which are untrue of any given member of a group.
Many modern ethnic stereotypes can be described as accurate representations of social norms within a given ethnicity and may reflect what a large portion of the living population is, in fact, doing.

 Stereotype Vulnerability
In an educational context in which stereotype vulnerable students are asked to perform tasks with which they identify comfortably as well as tasks as to which they are stereotype vulnerable, they should be more confident and better able to take on anxiety-provoking challenges.
Furthermore, Steele found that stereotype vulnerability could be induced by asking students to identify their races in a pre-test questionnaire, even when they had been told that the test was not a measure of ability.
We hypothesize that stereotype vulnerability will be reduced for all students by work that draws upon the full range of capacities relevant to good lawyering in a context which promotes shared work and a conception of ability as an expandable resource.

Stereotypes, of course, come in both positive and negative varieties, with a single group often being the subject of both simultaneously.
