SUMMARY

A study was carried out to investigate differences between a superordinate stereotype (relating to a hypothesised “typical” stutterer) and subtype stereotypes elicited after exposure to 4 stuttering individuals viewed on videotape. 22 participants rated the stutterers on a 6-item semantic differential scale. The results suggested that individuals may hold a variety of stereotypes towards people who stutter, varying in degree rather than the characteristics making up the stereotype, and these were not always negative. The results did not support a subtyping model used to explain stereotype change resulting from exposure to labelled individuals.
