Thanks Edger now I can't stop taking tests

I agree with you and don't see how this is science, honestly. Your brain gets confused when the stuff is switched around, and it's more of a video-gameish reaction instead of hard science.

Regardless, I have

- a slight preference for abled vs disabled
- a strong preference for straight vs Gay
- a strong automatic association for Harmless Objects with Black Americans and Weapons with White Americans. (only 1% of people get this result wtf)
- a slight automatic association for Male with Liberal Arts and Female with Science. (6%)


I'm taking more later

Oh shit, look what I started!

I wonder if you take more tests you overcome the brain confusion.


The Male -> LA and Female -> Science is interesting!

But is it an online thing cause now I'm curious, it sounds like it could be a fun time killer at least.

Got a slight automatic preference for Dark Skinned People over Light Skinned People.

Again, makes sense, considering where I grew up

Oh shit there's stickers a disclaimer right at the start.

There's like a bunch of these....which one is everybody doing.

edit: The weapons one didn't wanna load. (I doubt it's testing what it sounds like it's testing. It's probably not "name that gun")

For race I got a strong automatic preference for African Americans over European Americans.

Almost done with the gener-science one and I can already tell I botched it at a couple of points (too quick on hitting the button, I think...also it maybe penalized me for not giving a zip code or a profession cause nothing really fit the current situation)

Well..it is me after all so that could be a factor.

I'm not saying the test is wrong, just that I may not be the best arbiter of that considering Hol is the science expert and I'm constantly yapping with her and I'm...well...you know, with my major and all.

You cannot "botch" these tests. Also, the extra questions are just for their research and aren't required. They're just trying to see if a guy who does public tours on historical stuff associates males with liberal arts

And it seems like he does, which probably fits their hypothesis

Intriguing, considering in all my experience it's been roughly equal in terms of gender ratio. Going back to college courses even.

I have no clue what the ratio is in STEM fields because my only association with that is...well yeah through you and a couple of other people I know. Whole different universe basically.

I'm like confused about their methodology I think, like it said word matching.

edit: Also it said I got one wrong because I thought "what if they just have a tan though". Also I almost said a cell phone could be constituted as a dangerous object considering the world of improvised explosive devices we're living in.

Confused how? It judges how long you take to associate words with objects or thoughts or whatever.

If it takes you longer to associate the word "liberal arts" with "male", that means you associate that thought/word with females more often.

OHHH IT'S A TIMING THING. I get it, I think.

Okay?

Again part of me is curious if it's skewed because I'm a honkey who finds weapons fascinating.

Lol the president one.

Quote:

Wait. No. It's correct.

And the ONLY reason it's correct is because at least Obama did drone strikes. That's like the one thing he didn't fuck up.

Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for Straight people over Gay people.

Self hating Gay ITT.

I could have told you that though.

Nah it's not self hating. Legit, some Gay people can be really fucking annoying.

Like that lesbian that was ordained in the Episcopal church and spent half the sermon just reiterating the fact she was into dames.

...I'm pretty sure we only went to that cause somehow they were a relative or some shit. I don't even remember, I was really young so who cares.
