Vorurteile treten in unser Gedächtnis, sobald wir glauben, ein „Mitglied“ eines Kollektivs vor uns haben, auf das sich die zugeschriebenen Charakteristika beziehen. Psychologisch betrachtet stellen Vorurteile den (unbewussten) Versuch dar, dem „Fremden“ zu begegnen, und einen Menschen aufgrund eines vermeintlichen (kulturellen) Wissens zu identifizieren. Durch Zuschreibungen werden Menschen von der eigenen Lebensweise und Lebenswelt abgegrenzt, und aufgrund unterstellter Wesensmerkmale als „Andere“ etikettiert. Vorurteile und Zuschreibungen gehören zu unserer „Normalität“ und spielen sich primär auf unbewusster Ebene ab; wir machen uns quickly automatisch innerhalb weniger Sekunden ein Bild von dem Menschen der vor uns steht, und greifen dabei quickly automatisiert auf etablierte Bilder über „fremde Kulturen“ zurück.
