Wow, I took more than the number of tests requested. The results were not surprising, in fact, they make sense considering how and when I was raised. Implicit bias was never a topic of conversation until recent years. We were kids raised in a large extended family. Protected by caring adults that lived through WWI, the Depression and WWII. Survival and ensuring the basic needs were taken care of were the priority. Now as an adult looking back, I can see where the implicit bias came from. There was no malicious forethought, there was no understanding that what we were being taught in school wasn't the truth - and if was the truth - whose truth.
Taking the test created some anxiety, more because of underlying issues on not "getting it right" when I was tapping the letter E & I. The results were going to be the results, I just wanted to hit the right key. The tests affirmed what I already knew about my biases. The question is - how can I now move forward and recognize my biases when making decisions, having conversations, being more aware?
