Yes. Goth=scares people away.

goth people scare the hell outta me...
i used sterotypes only when it's as a last resort of defending myself from other peoples being jerks.
but it really never comes to that, i'm way to damn clever for my own good somtimes...

Only in high school. I pretended to be a stoner so people would sell me weed/buy weed form me.

Then again I was a stoner... Nevermind.

The stereotype of people like me...

...is being an airhead.
...or being stuck up.
...or being bitchy.

I don't know how to use those to my advantage, exactly.

No how could I do that?

I cant i'm white.
seriously though if you count the white stereotypr like we rule the world then nope. as with many others althu I admit I have no 'soul' these dancing black people speak of.

I guess. A lot of ppl seem to think I'm an airhead so it's entertaining to make them look like an ass when they realize I'm not.

Love that!!

I hate stereotypes. I don't really know any that apply to me, I suppose people assume because I'm a geek I don't like to have fun, but I don't see how I could use that to my advantage.

Being Italian and being named Carmella (thanks Sopranos), I get dumb mob questions all the time. I'm tempted to go off on how you better be nice to me or my dad will have you killed.

Of myself? Hmmm..... I don't know. I know everyone I meet thinks I'm weird, and I know I'm probably weird but I don't know that I actually use that to my advantage at all.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/3/07 - 11:56:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, I use for other people, not for myself.

I guess indirectly I do, though I'm not sure it is intentionally. People tend to assume I'm snobby because my parents have more money than a lot of the people in my area. So when I'm nice (I'm not a snobby person at all... My sister is though), they tend to be more impressed by it than if they hadn't previously assumed I would be a b*tch.

Racial / Cultural - Not intentionally, but I do take opportunities to correct people on their understandings of Spanish and Hispanic culture, the majority of those being telling them the difference between Spanish and Mexican food. And well, then there's the whole sexual stereotype of Spanish women that I don't mind indulging.

Regional - Being from Los Angeles, many people are surprised I don't drive everywhere, I don't like talking on my mobile phone, and that I'm a very nice girl. Also, yeah.. I've met a bunch of celebrities, I've run into them at gas stations and waffle houses. It was just a normal thing, though.

Gender - I really try not to.

Personal - Skinny vegetarian art student who bikes around in the bay area primarily interested in social justices (global and local) with FREE TIBET and ONE LESS CAR stickers on her bike.. and Uhmn.. yeah.. that's a hell of a stereotype on it's own.

I use the dumb blonde one at times - mostly to get out of traffic tickets

I. HATE. STEREOTYPES.

Not at all. People who use stereotypes should be shot. I hate those ignorant imbeciles. Grow up people and have some respect for others. Okay?

I tend to use stereotypes to make excuses for my father's very bad behavior when he drinks.
