This article presents data from a study of the family and educational backgrounds of forty-five Jewish sons in family-owned businesses in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It begins by considering the sources of stereotypes about sons in Jewish business families. The article then explores the process the author followed in confronting his own stereotypes formed in childhood and in changing those stereotypes on the basis of new information. Each assumption is compared with data from the interview study, and the discrepancies are discussed.
