Niemand würde sich wahrscheinlich von einer derartigen Behauptung ernsthaft angegriffen oder etwa diskriminiert fühlen; jedoch werden durch diese Aussagen pauschalisierende Zuschreibungen vorgenommen. Somit unterscheiden sich diese Beispiele von Prinzip her nur durch einen qualitativen Aspekt der „Schwere“ der Zuschreibung von zum Beispiel der Aussage „Türken unterdrücken ihre Frauen“. Oftmals manifestieren sich in unserer Vorstellung und Wahrnehmung mehr oder weniger starre kulturelle Bilder über andere Menschen. Durch verschiedene Faktoren wie Medien, soziales Umfeld und eigene Erfahrungen entwickelt guy eine spezifische Vorstellung und eine Haltung über gesellschaftlich konstruierte „Kulturen“. Diese Vorstellungen bergen die Gefahr, sich zu Typisierungen zu entwickeln; werden diese in bestimmte Dynamiken gebracht und als festgefahrene Fremdbilder angewandt, entstehen aus Typisierungen Stereotype, und aus diesen Vorurteile.
Vorurteile treten in unser Gedächtnis, sobald wir glauben, ein „Mitglied“ eines Kollektivs vor uns haben, auf das sich die zugeschriebenen Charakteristika beziehen. Psychologisch betrachtet stellen Vorurteile den (unbewussten) Versuch dar, dem „Fremden“ zu begegnen, und einen Menschen aufgrund eines vermeintlichen (kulturellen) Wissens zu identifizieren. Durch Zuschreibungen werden Menschen von der eigenen Lebensweise und Lebenswelt abgegrenzt, und aufgrund unterstellter Wesensmerkmale als „Andere“ etikettiert. Vorurteile und Zuschreibungen gehören zu unserer „Normalität“ und spielen sich primär auf unbewusster Ebene ab; wir machen uns quick automatisch innerhalb weniger Sekunden ein Bild von dem Menschen der vor uns steht, und greifen dabei speedy automatisiert auf etablierte Bilder über „fremde Kulturen“ zurück.
