When I come to a new environment or approach new people, I am filled with curiosity and excitement. By giving people memorable labels with my first instinct and stereotypes, “labelling” is one of my ways to capture and understand people I meet for the first time. At the same time, I am also curious about the intangible labels existing amongst us.

There are 3 chapters, the first chapter gives a literal and metaphorical explanation by pointing out tangible and intangible labels. The second chapter is to hold a discourse for different perspectives, by assembling people’s point of view toward labelling, whom specialized in different fields. And, the last chapter is about an experimental interview, 17 people involved, including my friends and my classmates. The questions are mainly about the label they have been given and how they feel about being labeled.

The purpose is to challenge the definition of labelling that people hold with negative stereotypes, by discussing the positive and negative sides. However, the field of labelling is far more extensive and deep. The report is not comprehensive enough, so it is only used for personal research.



每當接觸一個新的環境,對於周遭不同的陌生人,感到新鮮與好奇。我時常以「為他人貼標籤」的方式記憶人與瞭解人,也對人與人之間存在的無形標籤充滿疑問。本書共有三個章節,第一章節點出有形與無形的標籤,第二章節以他人不同的職業、身份抱持得不同的觀點間接與直接的探討對於標籤的看法,最後第三章節則是我個人做的訪談實驗。受訪者一共有17位,包含我的朋友以及同學,主要問題為被貼過什麼樣的標籤,以及對於被貼標籤的感受。

總而言之,我想拋開第一直覺與刻板印象對於「標籤」的定義,從正與反向兩面去探討標籤,由於「標籤」影響與相關的領域與範疇非常之廣,因此此書內容並非完整,僅為個人記錄與研究用。
