Stereotype

A simplified and/or standardized conception of a group of people based on assumptions and generalizations. While stereotypes can be negative ("this type of person is stupid") or positive ("this type of person is smart"), all stereotypes deny individuals within the stereotyped group the chance to be seen for their own unique merits, flaws, and characteristics.
