Thought Assignment #4 – Implicit Associations Worth up to 3 points of extra credit The Implicit Association Test (IAT) was designed to tap our unconscious prejudices. Research has shown that many people who would not consider themselves to have positive or negative associations with people in certain groups show some implicit or “hidden” prejudices on this task. For this assignment, select two of the Implicit Association Tests (there are many choices – e.g., race, gender, age, religion, disability, presidents) and take them, then answer the questions below. THIS ASSIGNMENT SHOULD BE TYPED! The tests can be found at https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/demo/ 1. What the results of the tests you took? 2. Were you surprised by the results? Why or why not? 3. How did your results compare to the results of other web respondents who took the test (presented at the end of the task)? 4. What implications might there be for these results, either for you personally or for people, society, or psychology in general?
