Abstract

The purpose of this study was to understand the possible reasons for the association of a certain stereotype towards an image. This was done by conducting an experiment involving multiple participants and having these individuals take a total of five surveys. By collecting fifty images that fell under the categories of race, religion, relationships, gender, and symbols - one hundred and three questions were asked to the seventy participants, all with differing ages and gender. An analysis for each question was then conducted to understand why the most chosen image was associated with the corresponding question. In conclusion, there was a common stereotype for each question - each with a logical reason for why it may have been developed.
