implicit association test

A test used to assess the attitudes or biases of the subject toward particular words or ideas. The examiner presents the subject with two words (e.g., the names of two different medical treatments) and two concepts (e.g., “safe” and “hazardous”). The subject is asked to choose which of the concepts best matches the offered words.
