What is to make a stereotype?

Stereotypes are widely held common beliefs about social groups, or different types of individuals. Stereotypes are beliefs, most of which are wrong. Stereotypes are not in and of themselves prejudice, but prejudice can result. For example, many believe that the Japanese are particularly brilliant, and there are similar stereotypes about the Germans being brilliant in science and engineering. These stereotypes don't seem to be negative and are possibly harmless. But even stereotypes like these might be used by some as a basis for harmful prejudices. There are many very unflattering stereotypes about many other nationalities and groups of every kind. So individuals don't really 'make' stereotypes; they develop over time within large populations and for various reasons. Individuals who don't give stereotypes much thought, or who are prone to prejudice, might easily fall into believing many negative stereotypes about groups and individuals from those groups.
