SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. We are warriors fighting to establish clarity between what is accurate and what is simply a myth (or falsehood) in life. All of this is in furtherance of our mission to surpass our goals! In this episode we explore, “Stereotype Threat does not exist.”
What is a Stereotype?
"Stereotypes are widely held cultural beliefs that are resistant to change."
(Block, Koch, Liberman, Merriweather, & Roberson, 2011)
What is Stereotype Threat?
“The phenomenon known as “stereotype threat.” Members of groups believed to be academically inferior — African-American and Latino students enrolled in college, or female students in math and science courses — score much lower on tests when reminded beforehand of their race or gender. […] found that black students performed comparably with white students when told that the test they were taking was “a laboratory problem-solving task.” Black students scored much lower, however, when they were instructed that the test was meant to measure their intellectual ability. In effect, the prospect of social evaluation suppressed these students’ intelligence.”
Minorities aren’t the only ones vulnerable to stereotype threat. We all are. A group of people notably confident about their mathematical abilities — white male math and engineering majors who received high scores on the math portion of the SAT — did worse on a math test when told that the experiment was intended to investigate “why Asians appear to outperform other students on tests of math ability.” (PAUL, 2012)
Does it exist?

The Omega Leadership Series is a weekly show that is designed to bring the styles and principles of the Omega Leader to those who lead. Laurie Beth has captured, coined and written about the "Omega Leader" for over a decade. How Jesus recruited, managed and led his team of twelve is our model of Omega Leadership. Taking both the Alpha and Beta styles of management, Jesus added the 'Omega' principles to the mix. He knew that leading others looked and felt different than his present day examples. Laurie Beth continues to capture Jesus' style, teachings, and examples of leadership in her messages, writings and programs. Here in the Omega Leadership series each week we unpack some of those principles so that listeners, leaders, and followers can benefit from the 'Omega Leadership Model.' This week Laurie Beth Jones will be talking about the Omega Leader as Coach using the Balance Principle: 'Know the difference between Archetype and Stereotype as you lead.'
Join me for an in depth cultural conversation with Dr. Nicholas Hartlep, author of The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Asian American Success. The Asian-American student population supposedly scores off-the-charts on high-stakes college admission tests, such as the SAT. Public perception of Asian-American success is evidenced in the phrase “the Asian invasion” — the notion that Asian-Americans are overrepresented on college campuses. Dr. Hartlep sheds light on percieved myths and stereotypes through his groundbreaking research. Dr. Hartlep is an assistant professor of educational foundations and author of the forthcoming books, The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Success (2013, Information Age Publishing) and The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings For the 21st Century (Cognella Publishing, 2013).

Tonight's episode will have a discussion about, is it okay to discriminate in your business based on race? Dealing with the Donald Sterling saga, this question came up on the show and we'd like to unpack it a little further. For example, if you own a housing community, is it within your right to only except people of a certain race or skin color? It's yours, so can you tell people, sorry but we only want White people here, because your kind has been said to be lazy, dirty, filthy, violent, unintellegent, and have a natural affinity for chicken that is floured and cooked in oil. On the other side of the coin, is it okay to have award shows that only give awards to people that perform or write music primarily listened to by black people. Does "White Privilige really exist? What are your views?

Today on The Middle Men Talk Show, we will be discussing the aspect of role reversal in relationships leading up to reasons why some people may be single. Role reversal is defined as a circumstance wherein two people adopt the opposite role of their normal or switch normal roles. With that being said, you have men who are not taking on the role of being the man and you have women who are taking on this role. You have some women who have been putting on this role of being the man that when they get with another man and she may feel he is not man enough for her. Nowadays, you have women who are the players, men are the ones getting played. When meeting someone both parties have to establish who they are in the relationship. If this does not occur, then you may not get out what you put in!!
How does role reversal impact reasons why someone is single? Where does role reversal stem from that causes a person to be single? How should a man and a woman establish their role of being a man and a woman? and should we be confined to our genders stereotype? Is there a double edged sword in a relationship when some women are more masculine and some men are more feminine in that relationship? Is role reversal a taught and learned behavior? Why do some people continue to allow their past hurt determine why they have to switch roles in their future relationships?

NO LIVE DISCUSSIONS TONIGHT! Listen in to what our guests and listeners' thoughts were on the stereotypes that society imposes on the African-American community. Listen in at 347-327-9967.
Stereotypes are an interesting part of social psychology. We use this aspect of information gathering to make assumptions and conclusions about the world and the people who move around us. These supposed opinions are not always correct versions of reality. Yet, they persist.
As such, we tend to want to group people according to these stereotypes.
One such stereotype that persists is the one about hillbillies. According to comedians, popular culture, TV, and movies, hillbillies bring a definite image to mind. Drunks, dusty clothes, illiterate, uneducated, uncouth, and mountain people.
But what is the real truth about 'hillbillies'? What is the truth? Can we separate it from the stereotype or is the stereotype so ingrained, so treasured, that we cannot pull fact from fiction?

“Being cheap helps you to become rich. It doesn’t happen by accident. And, as many wealthy, un-flashy people know personally, being cheap helps you to remain comfortably well-off. […] it’s the wannabes—the “aspirationals”—who are always drive new cars, wearing designer labels, dropping big bucks on swanky dinners. Often, these folks aren’t rich, though they try so desperately to appear so. They don’t have nearly as much money in the bank compared to the prudent, ascetic Warren Buffett types who have money to a large extent because they don’t spend it.”
Let's see why bargains are so popular amongst people who can afford to purchase the most expansive products!
