How biased are we really? We’re all biased in some ways based on many factors. The challenge is bringing such biases to our conscious awareness. With awareness we can make changes.
This is an interesting test that can give us such awareness. It’s the IAT (Implicit Association Test). It actually includes many subtest categories ranging from religion, race, gender to choose from.
The results they send you of any IAT test will include interpretations that have a basis in research done at the University of Washington, University of Virginia, Harvard University, and Yale University.

Socrates told us that the unexamined life is not worth living. Mental training is about examining the mind because, through such examination, our lives feel more grounded and meaningful. It can be scary digging into our own psychology. Facing our fears is the first requirement for doing any mental training. I encourage you to do some digging.
