One can also call this topic “Why I don’t fit and won’t ever want to fit into stereotypes, ever”.
So let’s look at what stereotypes are.
Social Conditioning says (and yes I am referring to Rsd Nation’s Videos):
“One who does or fits certain rules or traits of stereotypes MUST follow the rest of the stereotypes typical indicators”
Now, this sounds silly, I know.
Here is an example:
But look at it: especially here in Germany, everyone assumes you to be arrogant if you’re a model.
People who are not arrogant though they’re modelling are being looked at weirdly by other, arrogant or better: ‘stereotype-active’ models.
I can tell, because I experienced it. Being nice to “Non-models” or especially strangers is considered so off, that they will either be sceptical towards you or stop talking to you whatsoever.
You could say, that models split into different stereotypes, which is right in fact, but by dividing every stereotypes into more stereotypes, you won’t get similar stereotypes, you get an individual, which is what I am telling you to be.
The truth is, that once you reach high status as a stereotype, your status will crush and fall appart once you leave the stereotype.
The negative side of not being a stereotype is, being inefficient OR not showing clear progress in self development (which is also becoming a stereotype).
You read right, you are inefficient in what you’re doing when you don’t follow social standards, really.
You are of course slower, if you don’t follow, therefor you create.
Your image is becoming stronger the more you develop yourself, so don’t follow, but lead.
