Are you a racist?  Bigot?  Take the Harvard Test...IF you have the courage.

Please do not reveal your result.  The analysis of your responses is easily edited and manipulated.

It’s NATURAL to discriminate and be prejudiced; almost exclusively we all grew up with people like very much like ourselves.  It is natural to trust those people more than people who are not like us.  Obviously, we also pick up racist attitudes and beliefs from our parents too.  

We discriminate and use prejudice every day.  There is nothing wrong with those feelings.  Statistically, only about seventeen percent of white Americans have little, or no automatic preference to whites or blacks.  Only twelve percent show a slight to strong preference of blacks to whites.  Chances are, they have their prejudices in other areas.  

If you are curious about yourself, take this test.  It is NOT based on questions which you could answer the way you THINK you should.

Project Implicit

This web site presents a method that demonstrates the conscious-unconscious divergences much more convincingly than has been possible with previous methods. This new method is called the Implicit Association Test or IAT for short.

It does carry this disclaimer:
I am aware of the possibility of encountering interpretations of my IAT test performance with which I may not agree. Knowing this, I wish to proceed.

Go for it!

I took it years ago when it was first started and the only test concerned race.

The methodology denies the ability of the subject to answer questions they way they believe they should in their politically correct world.

I've had students come to class the next day furious about the result. As if I had any control.
