And by that I mean I need a little help from you guys on a small research paper :)

I'm writing a small paper on stereotypes and social stigmas. I would greatly appreciate if  you guys could answer a few questions for me.

I'ts a very short, and very simple question.

What is the first thing to come to your mind when you read these categories?
 (Please put down the very first thing you think of, no matter what it is. Nothing said will be judged, and all data will be used anonymously)

1) Movie 

2) Evil

3) Book

4) Sexy

5) Politics  

6) Game 

7) Stylish 

8) Cool 

9) Terrorist

10) Music 

11) Lie 

12) Truth 

13) Corruption

14) Hero

15) Freedom

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer, this will help me a lot with a first hand research requirement that I need. I will be asking these same questions to many people personally, and in other forums as well.
