Implicit Association Test
This week, our GIT IT content focuses on the general topic of unconscious bias. This has been a growing topic of conversation for quite a while now, even among New Thought Christians, as we consider ways to be truly inclusive in our various communities. So how does your “inner” express in the “outer?”
You may get some insight into the question by taking one of a number of “Implicit Association Tests” (IAT) to assess your implicit biases. Also known as implicit social cognition, implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. The IAT was introduced in the scientific literature in 1998 by Anthony Greenwald, Debbie McGhee, and Jordan Schwartz.
