The difference between implicit bias, systemic bias and unconscious bias


There a difference between implicit bias, unconscious bias and systematic bias. How interchangeable are they? What's your? What's your take on that? Yeah. So these I mean the three of those, it's accession it fascinating because the three of us we often. Use Them interchangeably but they're actually very very different and it's so funny when you mention even subtle differences like Duke versus UNC, right what I talk about in a lot of my research and what I studied, how these really subtle differences that. So much of success outcomes are determined by these subtle signals and cues in stereotypes and perceptions even something like I mean, it sounds funny. But the the color blue and seeing the difference between Duke Blue Versus Carolina blue immediately there's some sort of a reaction that happens but if we take that into the business world, for example, you know Marissa Mayer was Famously when she first started, Google spent a long period of time because she had this hypothesis that people would click through ads at a certain rate for storage shade of blue. So she spent a week or two just testing blue number twelve versus blue number fifteen, blue fifteen versus blue number twenty and found that there is one shade of blue that people were more likely to click through I. Don't know two or three percent more likely to click than others, and it may not sound like a huge percentage when you're selling ads for millions and billions of dollars that two percent can really make a difference. So even something like that he settle signals and cues but back to your original question. The ways in which these these signals and cues are enacted means the difference between unconscious and implicit and systemic sort of bias Sufi. Think about bias from this holistic sort of. This holistic continuum there's buys it's sort of over right. We know that you discriminate or your biased against someone based on how they look right but there's also bias that for example, I give you example imagine you're playing this board game a board game and you know you have no idea that that that every time you roll the dice, you're rolling affair of dice and your opponent every time. They're rolling the dice rolling in unser here of dice where they for some reason always gonNa roll lower numbers and you're playing this game and the whole time you're playing this game you're winning and you never see that the dice that you're rolling are different of dice than than your opponent and so when you go at the end of the game and you win, you're not really aware that there. Was Systemic sort of bias that that you that your success was due to something that was just in the system right? You one form of bias. Another former buys is that perhaps you unknowingly once of dice are red and once it of dice or blue, and the pollution of dice are the ones that are always going to be the ones that rule the lower number and so implicitly you're. Sort of you're told or you were taught like the red dice are always better just tried get those but you have no idea why and so every time it's your opponents turn you hand them the blue set of dice, right? So you're implicitly biased against because you somehow think that the red dice are better and and that you and so and so there's sort of this unsteadiness built in. Through what you've been taught or through what you've sort of known and so there's sort of this implicit also like subconscious to some extent subconscious, there is much more. You have no idea why you weren't taught that read was better than blue but for some reason, you realize that was always going to roll better than blue and so it's not this told you to always give blue to the. Opponent, but you just naturally always give the blue to the economy and make sure that you get the rats. So there's all these different forms of bias that exists and so sometimes I'd give that example to kind of straight the really small differences that exist between these types of
