A bunch of those tests where you have to group basic good and basic bad things together really quick and they tell you if you're a racist.

On the Race Test I got:
Your data suggest little to no automatic preference between White American and Black American.

Hmmmm I saw the words "this part of the test will take about 5 minutes" and gave up LOL.

Those kinds of tests worry me. Its like testing IQ. Some things just can't be represented in a form that can be used to compare individuals. Plus I wonder how a persons emotional state would affect that white/black test. What if you were really worried it might say you were racist even though you weren't. Your fear might influence your reaction to questions. If you were in some kind of job interview and they made you take that test, I'm sure some people would be fairly worried.

HAHA, Short Attention Span Kiliad?

I did think that though, it would be better to administer the test without explaining what its for, Also maybe don't give a time limit just tell the person the sooner he completes it the sooner he gets a huge Wad of Cash (of course im lying)

Can't be arsed to take it, Maybe when I have finished wasting my time on the forums and PC.
Trying to find old players. Anyone about? Drop me a PM or reply to this thread:

Fear is a valid concern Kiliad, but Beatonator, the test is pretty hard to cheat on, you have to do the sorting on each individual thing ASAP (I think I spent about a second on each item before sorting it to wherever it went).

The time limit is to keep the test accurate, if you could spend 40 minutes on one question it wouldn't be "implicit association".
