Reflection 1: What was your experience like completing the Implicit Association Tests? Did you feel stressed? Anxious?
I definitely felt a bit anxious because I was aware of the time it was taking to make clicks and knowing that this is what the test is measuring!
What were your thoughts while reading your results? Were you surprised? Upset? Or, were your results what you expected?
I felt good about my results for the Asian, Native, and Skin tone (slight, and little to no for the last 2), however, I was surprised (but not really) by the moderate automatic preference for white over black. This just goes to show regardless of how much education I do, there is this implicit bias within me to prefer white over black. Something I need to be aware of when talking and interacting with others and pause to allow myself to check in if one of these biases is in play.
