Insights Into Teens: Episode 177 ”Unconscious Bias” (Audio)
Ever wondered how your unconscious mind could be steering your decisions, actions, and perceptions? Welcome to another enlightening episode of Insights into Teens, where we, Joseph and Madison, will guide you through the labyrinth of the human mind to uncover the subtle yet pervasive phenomena of unconscious biases. We unravel how these hidden prejudices shape our everyday lives and potentially impact workforce diversity.
Join us as we delve into the different types of unconscious biases, including affinity bias—our inherent inclination towards those who share similarities with us, and the halo effect— our tendency to overgeneralize a positive first impression. We'll shed light on these biases using personal anecdotes and observations, to help you recognize how these biases might quietly exist even within your closest relations.
But we won't stop at just recognizing these biases; we're committed to helping you overcome them. Learn from us how becoming more aware of our prejudices can lead us to more reflective and conscious thinking and action. We'll explore techniques to interrupt these biases and enact positive change in our attitudes. We also highlight the role of positive influences in our lives in helping us identify and correct our prejudices. So, buckle up and get ready to challenge your perceptions and become a better version of yourself today.
