Stereotypes/Gifford/Hamilton:in the mid- 70s (…) Hamilton and Gifford (…) hypothesized that negative stereotypes of minorities might (…) form as a result of people’s tendency to make faulty associations. In particular, they postulated that there were cognitive factors that tended to lead people to make erroneous associations between small groups and negative behaviour. (Hamilton and Gifford 1976(1)). >Illusory correlation/Gifford/Hamilton.
