Social World McGarty Haslam I 239
Social World/stereotypes/McGarty: Our approach (McGarty et al (1993)(1) was informed by an alternative social cognitive approach to stereotyping that was inspired by the social identity approach, and in particular self-categorization theory (Turner et al., 1994)(2). >Social World/James, >Social World/Bruner).

Thesis: social perceivers are not confronted with a too complex world which they must oversimplify but instead seek to add to their stock of knowledge; they seek out subtleties and concealed insights.
Stereotypes/McGartyVsTradition/McGarty: Thesis: stereotypes are not rigid, simplifying, and negative distortions of reality but in fact are impressions of groups that would tend to be as flexible, complex, positive, and accurate as they needed to be, in order to reflect the requirement of the perceivers who formed them to adapt to and interact with the environment they confront.
