What Are Your Unconscious Biases? A Quick Test

May 14, 2019
By Jerrin Padre

This one-minute clip could give you insight into your unconscious biases.

Clip provided for PREVIEW ONLY, may not be used for training.

The human brain is made up of patterns—neural networks, forged over decades, hardwired to trust the familiar and question the unfamiliar. We develop these subconscious thinking patterns as a means of protection; they keep us safe and provide a lens through which we can view the world.

However, in the effort to build inclusive and collaborative work environments, it’s important for employees to be aware of their inherent biases.

As the workforce continues to diversify, teams will be comprised of people with different backgrounds, perspectives, beliefs, and methodologies. This diversity of thought is a huge advantage; yet it often imposes a few growing pains for those unaware of their unconscious biases.

 Learning to manage unconscious bias gives us insight into:

  • Why we make certain decisions
  • Who we work best with
  • Who we feel the most threatened by
  • Why we react to things in the way we do
  • How the way we think holds us back
