    This site is interesting--it helps you find your hidden bias by measuring how you respond (at an almost reflexive level) to stimuli.

    I haven't taken the "Judaism vs other religions" one but I probably should :)

    It's not always accurate (or at least what you might think is accurate). I think last time I took it, it said I was slightly biased against Native American, while I'm very proud of my Apache heritage. Give it a try!!

    I did the Gay-Straight one, and it tells me I have a 'moderate automatic preference for gay people relative to straight people'.

    I already know that I am very biased on everything.

    Bwahahaha! I didn't see that one, but apparently I failed it! :D There are two things I have learned to never pray for: patience or humility. ;)
