Implicit Association Tests

These tests are quite interesting, well worth testing yourself on a couple and see how you come out.

They do make you think. I've only done the race one and at times I thought it felt clunky and annoying and then I wondered if that was the point/proof.

Same.

I also preferred UK to USA which surprised me.

Although I did notice I kept putting failure in the good column. Don't know what that says about me.

Only did the gay one, for obvious reasons.

I have absolutely no bias whatsoever apparently.

Which figures tbh, cos I don't really like anyone.

I agree. Except when they try to compensate by being jolly.
