Anyway, a piece in the Washington Post Magazine about the Implicit Association Test had me thinking about this and some other things. One: I never written a post about name biases vis a vis names on job applications. Two: I remember the ruckus that was caused when it was revealed that most conservatives tested as having a higher bias against black people than liberals. Not noted as much was the finding that even those within the looked down upon groups tend to absorb the same biases against themselves (which makes my results more remarkable). Nor was the interesting fact that those who actually tend to associate with the looked down upon groups had a more favorable view of said group (though it probably shouldn't be surprising).
Since the publication of the WaPo piece, all but three tests were taken down. I presume once the wave of publicity dies down, the other tests will return.
