Implicit Associations

Via Malcolm Gladwell‘s pop-science book Blink, a bunch of tests from those nice people at Harvard to see what your implicit associations are to race, disability, sexuality, women in science (pointedly, one suspects), and Arabs/Muslims.

    “pop science” — that’s really lovely. Though also unfortunate, since I persist in believing that the world would a much better place if more people read that book and took it to heart.

    (Does anybody else find it relatively easy to completely reverse their biases on, say, the black/white IAT? I thought the timing was supposed to prevent you from thinking too much before you typed.)

    This Malcolm Gladwell seems to be a purveyor of unfettered nonsense.
