And I bet most of you dislike gays, Arabs and fat people. I know I do:

It is well known that people don't always 'speak their minds', and it is suspected that people don't always 'know their minds'. Understanding such divergences is important to scientific psychology.

This web site presents a method that demonstrates the conscious-unconscious divergences much more convincingly than has been possible with previous methods. This new method is called the Implicit Association Test, or IAT for short.

In addition, this site contains various related information. The value of this information may be greatest if you try at least one test first...

Their test doesn't account for the fact that you get faster at their little games as time goes by. After you've done it for a while you get used to watching for dark/good/bad/light and make fewer mistakes/go faster.

I believe they say that altho you speed up generally, you still have a measurable difference in the time between your responses to different categories.

Wow, what a shocker. I don't hate anyone, including jews or gays.

Your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for Judaism compared to Other Religions.


Well being that i just got back from a Jewish wedding and I have blood relatives who are Jews, And my two best friends are Shomer Shabbas. Yeah i guess that would be a correct assessment. Haaretz!

The Judaism test is the only one where I've shown only a "slight" preference for the "good" group, in this case other religions.

Funny 'cause I just spent last night hanging out with my fat Jewish friend.

I hadn't done the Presidential one yet:

Your data suggest a moderate automatic preference for Ronald Reagan compared to George W. Bush.

I don't think fat people are pretty, and though i'm generally tolerant, this whole thing with muslims going ape-shit over cartoons is making my patience wear thin...

I don't judge on skin color. I will respect a well dressed, well spoken black man just as much as any similiar dressed white man. I will look upon a white teenager or black teenager who is "thugged out" with the same amount of disrespect and ridicule.

I'm the new kind of gun owner. People for guns should focus on protecting our second ammendment rights... and not bring in their other political beliefs and bullshit to the table. It just happens to be so that currently, there is a disporportionate amount of idiots on the social left who don't look at the numbers when making judgements on firearms ownership, and a disporportionate amount of conservative dinosaurs who wish they were still in the 50s... no scratch that, the 1800s, when xenophobia was the order of the day.

Globalism and increasing civil liberties is the order of the day... and it does the firearms agenda no good to associate it with parochialistic attitudes.

Your data suggest little or no association between African American and European American with Harmless Objects and Weapons.


It's like I tell people when they ask:
"I consider everyone equally worthless when I meet them until they prove to me otherwise."

I don't particularly like arabs, I absolutely don't trust arabs, but if they'd stop trying to kill us I'd be fine with live and let live.


I don't care about fat people and as long as I'm not sleeping with her, I don't care if she's built like the Goodyear Blimp.




By Arabs, do you mean Muslims?
Cause, here in America, most Arabs are Christians.
I'll give you a pass on your ignorance.

Hmmm...

Is it possible for me to be a sexist?

I COULD try....

Don't even have the energy to take a test now, I've been out partying with hetrosexual, white, english speaking, non muslims...

So...maybe I'l just tag this...MAYBE I'll get back to it tomorrow.

Actually, 50% of those who identified themselves as black showed an automatic preference for white people in the race associations test, so you could very well be a sexist.

Bleh, don't feel like taking any tests right now...

But I can say this, I've got nothing against any one group of people in particular, and being of mixed race & ethnicity as I am, I see things from a different perspective than most of ya...

I've got nothing against homos either, as long as it between consenting adults, it's really none of my damn business...

Now if Republicans would only fight gun control as much as they did gay marriage and bio-research...

You have completed the Darker Skin-Lighter Skin IAT.
The line immediately below summarizes the results of your task performance.

Your data suggest little to no automatic preference between Light Skin and Dark Skin.

I'll have to try some other ones.

That test is bullshit. It has everything to do with repetition rather than recognition. I kept forgetting which side to hit when they switched it around.

Now I'm a white person who associates a black dude with a mace...

Just finished the same test. Those tests are bullshit. I could make that same test say you prefer whites with weapons.
