Implicit Association Test (IAT) Login/Join

This isn't a word post and perhaps doesn't belong here. The IAT attempts to uncover unconcious biases. You can read about it on Wikipedia or go to the IAT Home page. I took 3 of the tests and found them interesting, frustrating, and not particularly informative. I may change my mind, though. See what you think.

Very interesting. I took three tests (gender/family, abled/disabled, and religion) and scored 'moderate bias' in the way I'd expect, considering my own culture in the first two. Interestingly they say I seem to be less accepting of Judaism than of the other three large religions featured, Christianity, Buddhism and of Muslim, although I'm pretty strongly agnostic and have no concious anti-Jewish feelings.

Although they expressly deny such a thing anyway, reliance on the online tests alone would be dangerous, but they are certainly interesting.
