like loud, brash, sneaky, quiet, shy, hyper, smart, nerdy. Or other physical traits like strong, weak, athletic, overweight, clear skin, hygiene, posture, smiles, healthy looking)
So part of stereotyping is maybe putting people in other Boxes based on 1 or 2 Boxes they are currently in - based on Boxes that we think are connected or commonly together. We are trying to fill in the blanks and use what we do know about a person to make assumptions on what other boxes they fit in. Often what we know initially is what they look like - so race/sex is often one of the first boxes someone is placed in. Next is another physical trait - like athleticism, weight, strength (something thats visual) These probably spark the first connections between someone and someone else. It's not often you hear someone or know someone before seeing them. Maybe part of why the first part of the Voice is interesting - judges listening to people and judging not knowing what they look like.
In this show specifically - they often have "characters" they are casting for and maybe have gotten used to how they cast and make the associations based on that.
Then you can also get into how strong visual association can be - why things like Infographics, Video, Animation and even Photos can help in marketing and help users/customers/viewers make choices. So maybe that can be carried that over to information we are gathering about people and comparisons.
