Application: Stereotype Threat

Stereotype or social identity threat can be construed as an internal, cognitive state in which the individual is aware of negative stereotypes against his or her group and which can impact individual thoughts and/or behavior (Aronson & McGlone, 2009, p. 154). Considerable research demonstrates that stereotype threat can impact recipient behavior and can be destructive in relationships and in one’s personal view of him- or herself. Despite the prevalence and potential detrimental effects of stereotype threat, there are ways to decrease stereotype threat, including, but not limited to, reframing ability, use of role models, and self-affirmation.

For this Application Assignment, analyze stereotype threat and the conditions necessary for this type of threat to occur. Consider ways you might remediate a stereotype threat.

The assignment (5–7 pages)

  • Define stereotype threat.
  • The target of stereotype threat and the source of stereotype threat interact and are believed to result in six possible forms of stereotype threat. Explain at least four possible forms of stereotype threat being sure to include a thorough example for each.
  • Explain how the experience of stereotype threat can depend on self-perception versus group identity. Be sure to include discussion of how that experience might differ if an individual belongs to more than one group at risk for stereotype threat. Use examples to illustrate your point.
  • Explain two consequences of a stereotype threat and elaborate why these consequences can occur.
  • Explain three ways to possibly remediate stereotype threat.
  • For all of the above, be specific and provide examples to illustrate your points. Also be sure to use the current literature to support your response.
