Anyone seen and tried this?
I saw this article on the BBC website today Are you a rascist? The test that claims to know

Implicit Prejudice is a study that Harvard University are undertaking looking at people's personal stereotyping.

Interesting results, I did two tests so far (may try some others) in one I came out (pun alert) with no preference between straight or gay people and a slight preference for Black Europeans.

I would suggest not doing the tests soon after each other as you'll realise with practice you can beat the test.

Have fun...

Apparently I'm partial to hot, naked, straight women.

*shrugs*

.. or I could actually take the test. [Big Grin]

*edit* the website says the tests are currently unavailable. Perhaps their servers are racist towards white Canadian guys?

Hmmmph, I took this test, I have to say I don't agree with how they are going about it. The program trains you to respond with e for European Americans and good words with 'e' for African Americans and bad with 'i'. Then it tests you by switching European and African Americans while leaving good and bad alone. Of course you're going to be biased, they just trained your brain to move your fingers a certain way and now they mixed it up. If they plan to use this data for serious results, they are doing it all wrong.

The test says I have slight preference for white people. Not as a reaction to the result of the test, but I agree with Craw. Its a silly mixup game. [Roll Eyes]

I've done the Race, Sexuality and Asian IAT and all turned out to be inconclusive.

Hrm. I am a lost cause. [Razz]

I've got a friend with this theory: The ratio of gay in a person is inversely proportional to the Asian in a person. In other words, I am 1/8 Asian, therefore I am 7/8 gay. My friend is a physics major, so I trust him with this kind of thing.

That would make me 8/8 or entirely gay, and I'm not comfortable with that.
