Are You Biased?

I am. I thought I wasn’t, is the thing. I thought I was completely fair-minded and objective. But we can have biases we don’t even recognize, and those biases can affect our attitudes, our behavior and our decisions. It behooves each of us to examine our belief system and our attitudes and to try at least to recognize our conscious and unconscious biases.

To that end, I encourage you to consider taking the Implicit Association Test from Harvard University. The purpose of the test is to measure “attitudes and beliefs that people may be unwilling or unable to report” and uncover your unconscious biases. You might surprise yourself.
