I am French and I have recently came to realize the impact of gender and cultural stereotypes on my social identity. These misconceptions include among other things: woman are more sensitive than men, man are more ambitious than woman or French people are arrogant and they like wine.
The pre-conceived ideas about gender, nationality, sexual preferences or culture strongly affect oneself confidence in the workplace, at home and it impacts group’s dynamics. It is a pressure we feel to prove ourselves and it impacts our performance, our comfort level in people of different groups and all the things we think of as being determined by individual talents, motivation and preferences. We know what people could think. We know that anything we do that fit the stereotypes could be taken as confirming it.
Humans are built around stereotypes whether this is social class, gender, religion etc.. stereotypes are everywhere we go and that’s fine, what is important is to know how it affects each of us so we can truly see ourself, make the smartest choice on where we want to be and in other words be the person we want to be.
