Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People


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.

This title was chosen to compliment our upcoming exhibit, The Bias inside Us – an exhibition and community engagement project from the Smithsonian. To learn more about this exciting exhibit opening on April 17, please visit our website: https://www.ncsml.org/exhibit/the-bias-inside-us/
