For Drama we were talking about stereotypes and characters.
First, a stereotype is something we first think about when we think of something or someone but is mostly not really the real thing. Or maybe for Japan, you think everything is beautiful and has nice architecture. But that is not everywhere, many places in japan are not very beautiful and don’t have very nice architecture. A stereotype is useful when you need to make something clear quickly like in an acting game or something like that. Because it is inaccurate we can also know that it does not tell the whole story or the details about someone. I is just the general idea, also the saying: “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover” can also represent this clearly. The cover is the stereotype then for the saying but the inside can be something way different.
