"Is it weird to be proud of your stereotype?" one University of Montana student asks as part of a new social experiment from student newspaper, the Montana Kaimin.
The Kaimin brought together students and staff of the university from across academic, athletic and social stereotypes. Dressed to represent their professed archetype, they met their supposed "opposite." The forestry major met the business major, the baker met the nutrition professor and the university president met the custodian.
The pairs were filmed as they introduced themselves to each other, and the exchanges that followed showed good sides of humanity with praise, encouragement, identification and interest. By the end, the participants learned about their opposites -- but they also learned to embrace a little bit of themselves.
