I know my own mind.I am able to assess others in a fair and accurate way.These self-perceptions are challenged by leading psychologists Mahzarin R. Banaji and Anthony G. Greenwald as they explore the hidden biases we all carry from a lifetime of exposure to cultural attitudes about age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, social class, sexuality, disability status, and nationality.�Blindspot� is the authors� metaphor for the portion of the mind that houses hidden biases. Writing with simplicity and verve, Banaji and Greenwald question the extent to which our perceptions of social groups�without our awareness or conscious control�shape our likes and dislikes and our judgments about people�s character, abilities, and potential.In Blindspot, the authors reveal hidden biases based on their experience with the Implicit Association Test, a method that has revolutionized the way scientists learn about the human mind and that gives us a glimpse into what lies within the metaphoric blindspot.The title�s �good people� are those of us who strive to align our behavior with our intentions. The aim of Blindspot is to explain the science in plain enough language to help well-intentioned people achieve that alignment. By gaining awareness, we can adapt beliefs and behavior and �outsmart the machine� in our heads so we can be fairer to those around us. Venturing into this book is an invitation to understand our own minds.Brilliant, authoritative, and utterly accessible, Blindspot is a book that will challenge and change readers for years to come.Praise for Blindspot ��Conversational . . . easy to read, and best of all, it has the potential, at least, to change the way you think about yourself.��Leonard Mlodinow, The New York Review of Books� �Accessible and authoritative . . . While we may not have much power to eradicate our own prejudices, we can counteract them. The first step is to turn a hidden bias into a visible one. . . . What if we�re not the magnanimous people we think we are?��The Washington Post� �Banaji and Greenwald deserve a major award for writing such a lively and engaging book that conveys an important message: Mental processes that we are not aware of can affect what we think and what we do. Blindspot is one of the most illuminating books ever written on this topic.��Elizabeth F. Loftus, Ph.D., distinguished professor, University of California, Irvine past president, Association for Psychological Science author of Eyewitness Testimony � �A wonderfully cogent, socially relevant, and engaging book that helps us think smarter and more humanely. This is psychological science at its best, by two of its shining stars.��David G. Myers, professor, Hope College, and author of Intuition: Its Powers and Perils � �[The authors�] work has revolutionized social psychology, proving that�unconsciously�people are affected by dangerous stereotypes.��Psychology Today�An accessible and persuasive account of the causes of stereotyping and discrimination . . . Banaji and Greenwald will keep even nonpsychology students engaged with plenty of self-examinations and compelling elucidations of case studies and experiments.��Publishers Weekly � �A stimulating treatment that should help readers deal with irrational biases that they would otherwise consciously reject.��Kirkus ReviewsFrom the Hardcover edition.
