dc.description.abstractThe common stereotype associating brilliance with men seems to be internalized by American children as young as age 6, and this belief sets a barrier to women’s engagement in many prestigious careers from early on. To date, however, research on this stereotype has not considered (1) its developmental trajectory in non-Western cultures, and (2) its intersection with the stereotype targets’ race. To address these questions, we assessed 5- to 7-year-old Chinese children’s gender stereotypes about White people’s (Study 1, N = 93) and Asian people’s intellectual abilities (Study 2, N = 101). The results suggested that Chinese children start to associate brilliance with White men (vs. women), but not Asian men (vs. women) at the age of 6. In fact, 5- to 7-year-old Chinese children perceive Asian men as less intellectually capable than Asian women. The present research adds to our knowledge of children’s acquisition of stereotypes about brilliance in non-Western cultural contexts and highlights the importance of adopting an intersectional framework to understand the generalizability of these stereotypes.
