We do it all day long, consciously or unconsciously: pigeonholing and thinking in stereotypes. But how does it actually work? In this lecture, Dilara Bilgiç discusses the concept of labelling and stereotyping from a psychological perspective, in order to hopefully create more awareness about our own blind spots.
