The following summary is written to report and explain the results of the Bias Test. This test was taken in order to complete assignment instructions for the course General Psychology PSYC1003.

Bias Summary The biases do not represent how I perceive myself because in terms of the Gender-Career IAT that I do not think that male should be with the family. The way in which I have been brought up is that male is to go out into the working world and earn an income in which he can support his family while the female can contribute to the income if she chooses to do so. Whether this I right I do not know but this is my experience in my household while being brought up. I believe things are changing in today’s current society where there is more equality in the world but I don’t believe this bias test is correct with these results. The biases in the African America- European American IAT do not represent how I perceive myself because the tests show that I have a strong preference for European Americans rather than African Americans. I can’t see how I would have this opinion when I come from a mixed background. Brought up with one side of my family being mainly European and one side being mainly African with mixed parents I cannot understand as to how the bias test suggests that I have preference towards one or the other. The only thing that I think could affect my bias is that I was in a bit more contact with the European side of my family as a young child from about 2-6.
Because of my Christian worldview, my results are not affected because as a person who is learning about Christ every day and hasn’t got enough knowledge about Christ and the Christian point of view so I cannot speak from that sense.

I will be focusing my full attention on how I adapt my own terminology to different situations to suit the scenario I am surrounded within. Also the features found in spoken language, and the issues arising from the public attitude to spoken language. First paragraph:- I, myself have grown up in the Aylesbury bucks district. A very small, quiet town, where the youngsters terminology is mainly influenced by other places in the UK. London would be one of the main places in the UK where the youth of Aylesbury pick up their slang words and "ghetto talk" from. Like words such as "enit", "bruv", "wagwarn" etc are the most common words interpurated from East London. Many phrases such as these may not be familiar with the elder generation as their use of slang is very diffrent to the 21st century terminology of slang words. Along the years slang words have become more and more informal and harder to understand for people who are not common with those types of words. Slang is mainly used amongst people of the age group of 25 and younger. Slang is not used all the time in every day life, it is most commonly used amongst friends and other youngsters who are familiar with that fashion of speech. However, I would, (along with many other youngsters), change my idiolect for those who are older than me, or when I'm in a much more......
