Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People
Join us for a private reception and talk with Anthony Greenwald, Ph.D. '63, University of Washington professor of Psychology and co-author of Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People.
Think you know your own mind? Think you can assess others fairly and
accurately? Think again, says UW Professor of Psychology Anthony
Greenwald: We all carry hidden biases from a lifetime of exposure to
cultural attitudes about age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, social
class, sexuality, disability status, and nationality. Using the
revolutionary Implicit Association Test, which Greenwald helped create,
the co-author of Blindspot reveals these biases; questions the
extent to which they—without our awareness or conscious control—shape
our likes, dislikes, and judgments about people; and shows us
well-intentioned “good people” how to adapt our beliefs and behavior to
“outsmart the machine” in our heads so we can be fairer to those around
