Abstract

The present study will focus on smoking and the attribution of undesirable stereotypes or characteristics of people who smoke. There will be twenty student participants, consisting of mostly females with a few male participants. This is a between subjects study. A photo will be shown to participants of either a smoker or nonsmoker. They will then complete a questionnaire about the pictured individual. The expected results are that participants will attribute negative stereotypes with smokers versus non-smokers. This study will help us understand more about how individuals stereotype people solely by their appearance.
