“IMPLICIT SOCIAL COGNITIONINVESTIGATING THE GAP BETWEEN INTENTIONS AND ACTIONS

Project Implicit investigates thoughts and feelings that exist outside of conscious awareness or conscious control. Visit the research or demonstration websites to try out some tests and learn more about the research and yourself!”

Bonnie Sandy‘s insight:

Diversity can refer to sex, class, socio-economics, education, age, profession, niche, religion, philosophy, psyche.. it is engaging with those who are different from you. .. It is not simply  race or ethnicity.

I  dare you to  find out your implicit associations about race, gender, sexual orientation, and other topics using  Project  Implicit 

My recent letter to NYTM.org got  a lot of response. someone sent me a TedTalk video that mentioned this site.(Project  Implicit) and another tweeted me a definition for "Homophilly" http://didyouknow.doubleblindlabs.com/homophily-2/

Homophily, meaning “love of the same” describes the human predisposition to associate with people who share communities—economic, cultural, religious, etc. 
 
Project  Implicit investigates thoughts and feelings that exist outside of conscious awareness or conscious control. in short it is behavioral research and was started by three Tony Greenwald (University of Washington), Mahzarin Banaji (Harvard University), and Brian Nosek (University of Virginia),
 
Most assumed I meant race, but "techies" think  differently  from  "Normal" BTW those are Not my terms. As the sisters of a hacker and the daughters of a Programmer. my sister and I  often laugh that "we speak" tech. We often have to be mindful of that diversity and act as interpreters between the two diverse groups 

As a black female I  often find most  challenges I  experience come from other Blacks. Black men  who are uncomfortable with black females as equals or black american who resent my Caribbean Heritage. Even my  family is diverse in belief, religious viewpoints  ethnicity, economic backgrounds, culture and heritage. 
 
THE GAP BETWEEN INTENTIONS AND ACTIONS- I’ve been fascinated by this topic for a while, Curious as to how this affects our goals and what we actually  achieve. as well as how people shop. One to make time for.
