why do people generalize so much
Portugal ohmygodtuxisthatyou 
i don't get it why the human being finds some sort of knowledge in generalization of personal experiences. isn't it a bit unfundamented that just because something happened regularly, it will for sure happen everytime? there's always exceptions am i right?

Exceptions does not change the fact
2020-07-16 15:07
if its a fact, it can't have exceptions. that's the problem
2020-07-16 15:44
based, but explain that to others
2020-07-16 16:14
because you start by drawing stick figures. It's basic human instinct to simplify things.
2020-07-16 15:13
i guess. but at the same time we should be able to try to reject instinsts since we are racional beings.

But can you be rational all the time? I'd say I'm aware of myself around 1% of the time.
2020-07-16 20:53
because thats what our brain does with experiences it breaks it down over time until the only thing left is if it was positive or negative
2020-07-16 15:17
most people are 2Heads unfortunately
2020-07-16 15:19
"why the human" why are you generalizing?
2020-07-16 15:20
got em
2020-07-16 15:22
im an human. i was asking because i don't know the answer either
2020-07-16 15:30
but did you just assume we are all humans?

Isn't it obvious? Because it's easy. It doesn't require any thinking to generalize.

2020-07-16 15:23
"why do people generalize so much" the irony
2020-07-16 15:24
yea thought the same. to generalize is to learn
2020-07-16 15:33
Just experiences for "better" decision makings. If you know for example 30% of Asian restaurants have bad hygienic conditions and others 10% then you rather want to go to non Asian restaurant (if you are neutral to food and you don't care what you want to eat). Human just want to decrease risks
2020-07-16 15:28
You're a moron, everyone generalizes. Especially when speaking of large majorities. And its okay.
2020-07-16 15:30
->you're a moron? ok i guess ->everyone generalizes. now you agree with me, so that makes you a moron? im not saying that it isn't good in some situations. but if you study a bit of statistics i'ts dificult to find statistical samples. and in a lot of times is better to not have the knowlegde instead of believing in false knowledge
2020-07-16 15:40
You have the logic of a 9 month old dog. Is it on purpose or are your parents some how blood related?
2020-07-16 15:47
well i think they are both RA- but im not sure. well you have the rage of a dobberman with rabies. bro chill out, just because people don't think like you don't make you smarter or dumber than them
2020-07-16 15:50
Again with the pre-adolescent flawed logic. Are you some kind of autist? Fuck off.
2020-07-16 15:51
you are the one replying to me with agressive manners. if anyone should fuck off is you my man. go chill a bit, go for a walk if its nice weather.
2020-07-16 15:53
Dude, you're dumb. Like in, you have low IQ. I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you, but it might be because of your parents being blood related. Anyway, go blame them. Or society. Its not your fault, man.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Pastafarianism. Pastafarianism (a portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarianism) is a social movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools. According to adherents, Pastafarianism is a "real, legitimate religion, as much as any other".

He said "everyone generalizes" as in that it's a normal thing. Not in that he's agreeing with you.

generaising is good if we talk about blacks
2020-07-16 15:42
statiscally speaking it's not. it's not a legitimate sample
2020-07-16 15:43
Why generalisation? Because of "availability heuristics". I recommend reading "Thinking Fast & Slow" by Kahneman.
2020-07-16 16:16
actually, seems like a really good read. i will check it for sure. thanks

"why do people generalize so much" Classic!!
2020-07-16 16:26
You could probably write a lot about it, but in a few words you can say that the reason is that most people cannot admit to themselves that they are just stupid and ignorant. Ofc its nothing wrong on being stupid and ignorant, beacuse most people are like that. But nowadays having almost unlimited access to knowledge and informations everyone has the capabilities to change it, but most dont take these possibility. Ofc, there are plenty of reasons for this but it is a completely different thing to discuss. For most people, "thinking" is an activity they cannot handle. "Generalizing" is just easiest way than digging into a subject on which they would have to spend a lot of time what would also require some effort and commitment. The best example that shows this way of hiding own deficiencies, is the way how people treat each other in this place. And the reason for this is at the root of the educational methods of young generations, which nowadays is focused on the least possible mental effort. Nowadays it is very difficult to meet a person who would be able to admit that he is wrong. Humility and assertiveness, which are the features of people aware of their deficiencies, have been replaced by arrogance and rudeness. You must be a very patient person by asking such question in here. (I wrote this by using online translation tools, but I hope this is understandable enough for you.)
2020-07-16 17:35
wow you wrote a lot :D but i don't agree with you in the part that most people can't handle "thinking". i just think that they weren't educated in a way that would promote thinking as a way of handling intel, or just because they don't have the time to make a logical deconstruction of the intel gained.
2020-07-16 18:37
That's exactly what I meant when I mention about the reasons why people don't try to change it. School, work, family and many other important things, not to mention about develop in many other aspects in life. Ofc, everyone sometimes "generalize" in some way, which is nothing wrong but only when you're realize that your opinion may not be completely objective due to the lack of sufficient knowledge on a specific topic. But when I wrote about that most people have serious problem with "thinking", I meant those people who consider their generalizing opinions as something undeniable. And from my very observation, even on the Internet, I notice that the vast majority of people behave like this. You can't even talk to such people because they always bring the whole discussion down to the trash talk level, what exactly you experienced in a few comments above :D. You know.. people usually manifesting their stupidity by absolute conviction of their own wisdom :D.

I agree with the "serious problem with thinking" part, although it happens to me the opposite way. By that I mean not even knowing what my opinion should be, as 2 minutes later I don't agree with it anymore.
