We have seen how the movie Gandhi exhibit PREJUDICE and BIGOTRY. For the purpose of this Db, use these four definitions based on discussions I have casually borrowed from numerous websites:
Prejudice Definition: Prejudice refers to preconceived opinions or attitudes about an individual or group that are not based on reason or actual experience. These attitudes are typically negative and stem from stereotypes, and prejudices can be implicit (subconscious) or explicit (conscious).
Bigotry Definition: Bigotry is a persistently rigid intolerance and irrational hatred or refusal to accept people who are different. It often manifests in discriminatory actions and hostile behavior towards others.
Ideological Thinking Definition: Ideological thinking refers to a systematic set of beliefs or ideas that shape an individual’s understanding of the world and guide their political, social, or economic perspectives. It provides a framework for interpreting events and making decisions buts can be either rigid or open to adaptation.
Heuristic Definition: a heuristic is a tool or aid to learning, discovery, decision-making and/or problem-solving. Heuristic thinking uses rule-of-thumb strategies or mental shortcuts (often unconsciously) to quickly make otherwise complex decisions or judgments. Conscious heuristics often rely on trial-and-error methods that compare the present situation to representative mental prototypes of similar situations.
