"Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principals"

The quote "Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principals" is written by David Hume, a Scottish philosopher. That I really agree with. Society has created these stereotypes that everyone lives by and thinks it's OK, but it's not. Here are a few things to think about. Do 'you' even exist? Are ‘you’ really you? If all these characterizations that make you ‘you’ are actually based on stereotypes made by society, does that really make you unique or just another face in the crowd? Think of it like this, you heard this new song on the radio but you don’t like it, after you heard it 5-6 times a day, it’s starting to sound better. Now, do you start to like it because you just do because after you heard it a few times it just started getting better and better and it’s now your favorite song or do you start to like it because the stereotypes about the song made by society is telling you that you should like the song. So is this really your choice, or a brainwash for you to like what other people seem to like. So you can think about that and I would love to hear your opinions.

Nice article!

The thing with the song, could it be that you're hearing the song so many times that you remeber it and hear the good things in the song, and therefor you start to like it?

And I think that we affects a bit of the sterotyping in the society but you and me are still you and me. Because we are born without any sterotypes. We are born with genes and by them we becomes one person, that's who we are. Still the society have influence of us. I don't think this influence are that huge. Because it's all about how you're raised and which genes you have. That's what makes us unique.

Still a very good article Ronja! :)

I do agree, we are made up of genes. But genes only give off traits like what you look like and stuff like that. But I personally think that society affects what you like, and how you dress etc.

Thanks =)
