Pervasive Stereotype Accuracy

(p.323) 17 Pervasive Stereotype Accuracy
Social Perception and Social Reality

Lee Jussim

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews every high-quality study of stereotype accuracy that could be found. It presents the evidence with respect to personal and consensual accuracy, using both correlations and discrepancy scores (see Chapter 16 for an explanation of what these are). It includes sections reviewing the empirical research on racial, gender, and other stereotypes. When the original studies addressed conditions under which accuracy was higher or lower, that, too, is included here. Furthermore, each study is critically evaluated, highlighting both its strengths and its limitations. Overall, this review indicates that the high-quality scientific research consistently shows that stereotype accuracy is one of the largest effects in all of social psychology.
