This research note presents a very brief summary of the argument we are developing for a much longer and more detailed journal article. Our aim here is to present the basic hypotheses that: 1) two main styles of stereotyping are used to either dehumanize or infantilize a target group, and 2) the selection of a style of stereotyping depends upon the extent to which the target group is perceived as a threat.
