why is it, some people pick a stereotype to be, kind of like emo or scene or whatever to be differant when really they aren't? how come some people hate girls or guys who are slutty or preppy, or materialistic, when they are just doing what makes them happy? kinda like how some people hate people who have tattoos or piercings? is it because they cant be something they aren't? is it jealously? i dont see why people cant just do whatever makes them happy, and not hate someone for what makes them happy, unless they are interfering with their life? im not talking about highschool stuff, so if you are in highschool just understand people are mean and just trying to find themselves. im talking about grown adults. from like 20-50s. theres stereotypes stay in some people. please dont be mean or rude im not trying to offend anyone.

I've recently begun to study psychology, and I'm learning that when we place ourselves into social groups we often associate feeling good about our group by feeling superior to other groups.



Taken to extremes this can get pretty nasty.



It's a psychological explanation - not some 'great truth' I'm spouting.



Makes a lot of sense to me, though :)

YES thats totally what people do. growing up, i never understood this. i always just wear what i want. and i've never been able to fit in anywhere because nobody wants to accept me because i wont pick one stereotype or one thing to be! even to this day...when highschool is over! and out of the college scene! its crazy!
