    It is more sad for those who are prejudiced, because they are full of fear, running from themselves, understanding, and the truth.

    They are angry and afraid, trapped inside their own protective cell upon which they have painted their distorted interpretation of the world, to block out the painful realities of life which they've chosen not to work with.

    It *does* seem to mark the individual out as someone who is cowering under a false load.

    Where do you think the prejudices start? Do we really learn them from others? Or do we adopt them to compensate for a perceptual problem?

    For example, you were eating a ham sandwich when a bee stung you. If your Se is faulty, it might connect the two together, saying that bees and ham sandwiches are harmful to you, therefore you assume every bee is trying to sting you and every ham sandwich is part of the bee sting equation.

    Wow. You are amazing.

    You just made me feel like 10 times better.

    I'm going to follow you around and snag all the little nugets of wisdom that you leave lying around here.

    Your writing style is enrapturing.

    Thanks. It's a good idea for a thread.

    Prejudice is a constituent of the in-group/out-group phenomenon.

    Do not be made to feel inferior by prejudice when it is directed at you--it is not a reflection of you as an individual or the group being targeted to which you belong. It is about gross misunderstanding and/or the displacement of unwanted emotions on the part of the possessor of the prejudice.

    Prejudice is a defense mechanism. There is nothing wrong with defending yourself, last time I checked.

    It's not limited to people, but also experiences or ideas.

    For example, I know that trying out certain experiences will be a waste of time and have no value, so why waste energy getting up and doing it?

    Or perhaps someone suggests a new idea for whatever reason. You know in your mind that the idea is stupid (possibly along with the person who conjured the idea), so why waste trying it out?

    Another example is not wanting to see a movie because it looks dumb. It will be a waste of $10.00 and, on average, two hours of your life. Why waste your life?

    I hope you all have learned a lesson.

    This is not really example of prejudice, as if someone shares their idea with you, and you come to the conclusion that it is stupid, then you have made an informed judgment, given, of course, that you have the sufficient cognitive capacity to foresee problems and obstacles associated with the failure of the idea.

    Now, if you shot down their idea because the person has never presented good ideas before--not because the idea was faulty--then that would be prejudice. (And, I could see how this would be a form of self-defense.)

    I never felt inferior. Only enraged. Dissapointed. Sad.
