What are your health biases?

by | May 20, 2020 | Exercise, Fitness & Rehab, Personal Stories | 0 comments

I’ve never been able to understand why some people don’t enjoy exercise. And more importantly, what it would take to change their minds about it.

And I have the same curiosity in regard to individuals’ attitudes toward other health-conscious actions, in, for example, the areas of diet, meditation, social engagement, and more.

Turns out there are people who study our unconscious, implicit attitudes towards various things, including health. You can take a quick test to determine the degree to which your health-related attitudes are hard-wired into an almost automated belief system. The more strongly that your implicit associations predispose you to a particular response, the more effort it takes to make a shift.

Here’s a link to Harvard University’s Project Implicit

You can take a test to reveal your own implicit biases in various areas of health. While you’re at it, they also offer tests for implicit attitudes regarding race, gender, sexuality, religion, and much more.

Let me know how you enjoy the test, if the results surprised you, or if they lead to any changes in your behavior.
