Men vs. Women Bias Test
Implicit Association Tests (IATs) were developed at Harvard University as a way to test for subconscious associations in people’s mentality. Today, IATs are widely used to check for stereotypes, biases, and unconscious representations.
Do you have implicit associations in favor of women or men? To take the test, follow the instructions below.
The IDRlabs Men vs. Women Implicit Association Test was compiled from various studies in Implicit Association Tests. The quiz provides an informed indication of your mental representation of each religion’s characteristics, extracted from standard Implicit Association theory. The test is merely a first glance related to unconscious mental biases and should not take the place of familiarizing oneself with gender characterization in depth.
The test measures whether you are biased in favor of Men or Women by using the well-known framework of implicit associations. The idea is to measure the test taker’s latency time in associating pleasant and unpleasant connotations of the gender being tested—in this case, the traditional genders of male and female.
Implicit Association Tests measure reaction times. They do not purport to be exhaustive or normative, especially when it comes to disabled or neurotypical test subjects. The test gives you the most plausible interpretation of your results. It does not contend to be correct in every case.
