Project Implicit is a non-profit organization and international collaboration between researchers who are interested in implicit social cognition - thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control. The goal of the organization is to educate the public about hidden biases and to provide a “virtual laboratory” for collecting data on the Internet.
"Implicit Association Test," offers one way to probe unconscious biases. In this 10-minute test, you will be presented with words or images and asked to respond as quickly as possible. At the end, your responses will be tallied so that you can see how your score compares to others and to your expectations (these responses will also be saved and tabulated as part of an investigation of implicit associations).
MTV's Look Different campaign and the Kirwan Institute have partnered in this interactive self-awareness program to help you identify some of YOUR biases pertaining to race, gender, and LGBTQ+ issues , plus learn how to recognize and address these reactions and behaviors.
When you sign up, for one week you'll receive daily email messages with reflections for you to consider as you go through your day. Try it!
