Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for Older People compared to Younger People.

I hate taking the Implicit Association Test, but it’s a good thing to do.

Having mentioned it in my previous post (below), I was prompted to go do it again. The test that came up is on age groups; they have a wide range of others. I’ve taken the famous one on race, and it also showed a slight bias; almost everyone does.

It’s important not to read to much into things like this, but it’s important not to dismiss it, too.
