test yourself

I have more birthday loot to share, but that can wait for tomorrow.

Yesterday I took a very interesting test (which I found via that shows a person's racial bias. I don't know exactly who my readership is, but I am guessing many (if not all) of you are middle class-ish white women. You would probably (hopefully) say, "I have no racial bias." But this test will make you really think more deeply about that question. The article I started from is
here. The test is not difficult - it is purely subjective. But parts of it are somewhat complicated to understand if you're distracted. So put the kids down for a nap or wait till bedtime, then sit down with a cup of tea and take this test. It's pretty interesting.
(click on the research will ask for lots of registration information, but not your name or address...this is not one of those internet scammy IQ test-like things)

I am quite happy to say that my results indicated I do not judge people as competent or incompetent based on race, which I think I already knew. If you choose to take this test I would love to hear what you think of it.

I tried out a couple of the demonstrations tests, which I assume are smaller. I don't want to do the main thing while at work since I'll likely be interrupted. But it's definitely interesting. It didn't tell me anything I don't already know yet, and I'm glad of that. Very interesting site - I'm planning to do the "research" test when I have time. Thanks for sharing!
