    The Implicit Association Test exists to unravel and illustrate where people’s unconscious biases in different topics. It measures how strong associations are “between concepts and evaluations or stereotypes” (“Project Implicit”). With these measurements, people can be more consciously aware of their implicit biases and associations. This can help lessen prejudices and discriminatory acts because more people are becoming aware with this test. I took Asian IAT, Sexualty IAT, Gender-Science, IAT, and Gender-Career IAT. I took the Asians IAT because I wanted to see how my Asian race and my childhood played in my implicit bias, I was raised in a dominant white family, and I grew up in a dominant white neighborhood. I wonder if that played an…

    for the Implicit Association Test (IAT) Race Test was not as surprising to me as the results for the IAT Gender Test. According to the IAT Gender Test, I had a slight association of males with the word “career” and females with the word “family” compared to males with the word “family” and females with the word “career.” I had thought I would score higher on the association of females with family and males with a career. Although there was this difference, these results show that my unconscious…

    I. Introduction a. The Implicit Association Test (IAT) is to measure attitudes and beliefs that individuals may be unwilling or unable to be aware of. The IAT can be especially engaging if the results show that an individual may have an implicit attitude that they were unaware of. For an example, someone may consider men and women as equals in association with obligations; however, their initial, automatic associations could show that they, like many, associate men as more career-oriented and…

    Before taking the Implicit Association Test (IAT), I thought that it was an interesting way to test for unconscious prejudice because it shows how different qualities and values are associated with white and black people. I know that I am biased towards both groups in different areas, but I felt nervous before taking the test. I think that was because I thought it would make me feel like a bad person depending on my results. I know that I am not an inherently bad person based on any test…

    After taking the Implicit Association Test offered online through Harvard University in collaboration with a few other institutions, I can say that I am somewhat shocked by my results. I took the IAT for automatic preferences of those of European or African decent, essentially my preference of race. In the brief description of the test, it said that the majority of people prefer white over blacks. I thought of myself as being part of the exception group; the very few people who do not fit…

    it is easy to believe that gender and career association tends to fall into categories. During a time where this controversy is being challenged, it makes us question why people are set to a certain way of beliefs. Self-concept may be one theory that puts emphasis on this; children obtain implicit values at a very young age and carry them throughout their lives. We instill this in them at a young age that will later impact their concepts of themselves and what they believe they can or cannot do…

    is what ultimately leads to it. However, the scientific study of prejudice explains that racial and ethnic groups are far more alike than different. It also explains that differences between the two are actually smaller than among members of the same group. Psychology explains what explicit and implicit prejudice while reflecting back on how it applies to racism. Explicit prejudice is the most common kind of prejudice that people are aware…
