To reply to this question, researchers examine no matter if individuals are greater at remembering stereotype-inconsistent or stereotype-consistent info. As we'll see, what humans keep in mind is determined by their expectancies, the knowledge assets, and their lay theories approximately others’ personalities. In a now vintage examine, Claudia Cohen (1981) studied how people’s expectancies encouraged what they remembered approximately someone else. study individuals watched a video of a lady who they believed to be both a waitress or a librarian. within the video, she defined her day at paintings to her husband. whereas doing so, the girl said occasions or behaved in methods in line with either the librarian stereotype (for instance, she wore glasses and acknowledged she cherished classical song) or the waitress stereotype (for instance, she spoke of bowling and stated she loved pop music). As anticipated, contributors recalled info that was once in step with their stereotypic expectancies far better than the knowledge that was once inconsistent with their expectancies. those that believed she was once a waitress remembered the issues that have been in step with the waitress stereotype and people who believed she used to be a librarian remembered the issues that have been in keeping with the librarian stereotype. result of a moment examine confirmed that stereotypic expectancies have an effect on either what humans consider approximately somebody and the way they use that remembered details in later judgments. contributors who, within the moment learn, didn't find out about the woman’s profession till when they considered the tape nonetheless had higher keep in mind for the stereotype-consistent details. SOCIAL CATEGORIZATION AND STEREOTYPES that's, whilst humans later stumbled on that the girl was once a librarian or a waitress, they used this data to make experience of what that they had already kept in reminiscence approximately her. different examine helps this consequence (see, for instance, Dijksterhuis & van Knippenberg, 1996; Rothbart, Evans, & Fulero, 1979). As humans procedure information regarding social interactions, their reminiscence might be stimulated through a strategy referred to as resource confusion; this happens whilst an onlooker incorrectly recollects a habit played through individual A as having been played through individual B as the habit is extra in line with the stereotype of B’s workforce (Sherman, Groom, Ehrenberg, & Klauer, 2003). one other impact of stereotypes on reminiscence contains assimilation: humans bear in mind a habit at the beginning awarded to them mostly phrases as stereotype constant; so, the habit is assimilated to the stereotype (Dunning & Sherman, 1997) that's, given a normal assertion a few person’s habit, humans may well incorrectly bring it to mind as a extra particular stereotype-consistent habit. for instance, David Dunning and David Sherman (1997) chanced on that given the assertion “Some felt that A’s statements have been untrue,” humans remembered individual A as having lied if he was once portrayed as a political candidate and as having been flawed if he used to be portrayed as a physicist.
