Adichie gives a number of examples of times when
both herself and people she knows have fallen into the trap of seeing a
"single story" for a group of people.Give an example of a time from your life when you have inadvertently stereotyped a group
I personally stereotyped that people in the Western culture are heartless, senseless business-type of people, that do not know what the personal interconnection bonds like friendship etc are, and that the only thing they care about is money. Also I stereotyped, that everyone in the Western society lives in a luxury house with personal housekeeper, throwing parties and wasting money all the time time, just like in the movies. Of course my stereotype vanished once I had a chance to closely communicate and experience all the positive traits of the Western culture.
