Having completed the four IAT tests, I wanted to share my reflection. The tests required significant concentration but I didn’t experience too much anxiety or stress. My results suggested that I had a slight bias towards White people, but only on the initial test. Otherwise there were no reported biases. I do appreciate tests such as these and what they are trying to achieve, however after the initial test I had a better understanding of the process and this may have impacted my results.
I would not have been surprised if I had a slight bias towards white people throughout as I believe I have had significant exposure to this through media, propaganda and education. It is of paramount importance, personally, to reflect honestly and appreciate that I may have unwanted biases, as this is the best way to remove them.
