Exercise - Thanks to Sandy Hoar and
Denise Cora-Bramble and the ISCOPES project
- Implicit Association Test -
Please read the introduction to this material
carefully. Remember, this test is experimental.
You may use it as a tool to examine your
own unconscious (not under conscious control)
attitudes. You should use it in conjunction
with your own conscious analysis of your
attitudes. Implicit attitudes can be changed
by various factors, including contact with
people of other cultures and races. However,
it requires more than just contact, it requires
some awareness of your own responses. Your
conscious attitudes are shown by your responses
to the photos above, while unconscious attitudes
may be detected by using this test. After
you complete both, take a few minutes to
write down your reactions to these exercises.
If you feel comfortable doing so, discuss
them with another person, preferably of a
different culture, race, age or gender.
NOTE: This exercise is completely anonymous,
no-one will view your answers, so please be honest.
