Abstract  Stereotype is the main cause of prejudice, and the way of decreasing or eliminating stereotype has been studied for years. Regarding to the controllability of stereotype, conventional view holds that “automatic process is fixed and inevitable”. On the other hand, modified point argues that “automatic process is being conditional”, and which has been changed from “fixed and inevitable” to “being conditional”. So far, some effective intervention strategies for eliminating stereotype have been demonstrated through numbers of empirical studies, which mainly include training, consciousness inhibition, familiarity and holding unprejudiced belief. Theory of controllability of stereotype is also empirically supported by existing intervention studies. However, current studies still have some limitations concerning its applicability, effectiveness and work mechanism, which should be improved in further research.
Keywords stereotype      controllability      automatic process      intervention strategy
