More Gender and Race Perception Experiments

This serves as a kind of followup to this post where I described an experiment I did with a group of students. I recently did a similar version of this experiment but with some modifications based on suggestions I received here!

The results are most interesting and for sure show aspects of our hidden sexism and racism. At some point, I’m hoping to improve the experiment by finding images that are even more similar to one another. 

Group one saw the following image and were asked to write down the personalities of the people on the screen.
