    Don't be so sure.

    Apparently I don't mind black people, but fat ones seem to bother the subconscious phAge.

    Actually it's the good men and women of HARVARD who say you like Jewish people. And they should know.

    My preferences generate an error. I'm sure there's a lesson here somewhere.

    Did my head in long before I could make it to the end of a test. Those things make me feel like I'm about to have a fit.

    All that for "Your data suggest a slightly stronger implicit association between Romney and American compared to that between Obama and American."? That's it?!

    Seriously?! I thought it was going to say I am a raving Commie in American terms.

    My data indicates that I have a moderate preference for black people than for whites.

    The only thing I can think of that was vaguely right-wing was that I didn't approve of affirmative action (if that's the word - eg giving the job to the darker of 2 equal candidates).

    Did the Native / White American one and got this:

    Your data suggest little or no association between Native Am. and White Am. with Foreign and American.

    I don't actually know what that means though. I'll try the fat and disabled ones.


    Fat

    Your data suggest little to no automatic preference between Fat People and Thin People.


    Disabled

    Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for Abled Persons compared to Disabled Persons.


    I'm not massively surprised by that last one. Unfortunately I do tend to feel uncomfortable around disabled people. =/

    I just did the first one on age. Apparently "Little to no automatic preference between Young and Old."

    I am not cool with any of those things, I don't need any jewish/arab interweb hippy test to tell me that.

    Your data suggest little to no difference in implicit preference between famous Black and White people.
    Yay. I think. I'm sure I kept putting Mel Gibson as bad.

    Did the 4 race one. Apparently I hate the whites, but love Blacks/Hispanics, closely followed by Asians. I'm off to read The Observer.

    What's that? You're quicker at categorising things you're more familiar with? Mind. Blown.
  • Deleted user 12 October 2012 15:20:58

    Lots of preamble about answering quickly.
    Too many quick responses for result.

    Stupid test.

    @MightyMouse

    That's not really what it measures, though.

    @phAge

    It basically is, despite the controls. The real leap in these is always that you can tell much about people's behaviour that you couldn't from just asking their age/race/gender. If you want to know if you're racist, the simple test is whether you act in a racist manner.

    These things can be interesting, but they don't really tell you anything and people are always tempted to draw conclusions that just aren't valid.
