Exploring Stereotypes With Google Autocomplete

Home » Blog » Web » Exploring Stereotypes With Google Autocomplete

This post by Facebook engineer Stoyan Stefanov suggests Google Autocomplete as a fun way for exploring clichés about nations:

A friend was suggesting that one can easily list the most popular stereotypes about a nation. With a little help from a friend – Google autocomplete. Simply type “why are the [nationality X] so …” in the old search box and enjoy.

It turns out that this actually works pretty well:

Britons

Germans

Americans

Arabs

Chinese

Japanese

French
