A stereotype is a widely held, simplified, and essentialist belief about a specific group. Groups are often stereotyped based on sexgender identityrace and ethnicity, nationality, age, socioeconomic status, language, and so forth. Stereotypes are deeply embedded within social institutions and wider culture. They are often evident even during the early stages of childhood, influencing and shaping how people interact with each other.
