When I’m watching a news broadcast, I can tell immediately if it’s a person I care for or someone I hate.
If I see a young man get beaten up by someone I don’t know, I know that person is someone I’m rooting for.
But when I see somebody get beaten down by a person with whom I don.t identify, I’m more likely to root against that person.
In a study published in the journal Psychological Science, psychologists have demonstrated that, when it comes to feelings of prejudice, people with different psychological backgrounds can show different types of prejudice.
For example, some people are predisposed to dislike minorities because they have different characteristics.
And yet, others have different traits and are more likely than others to see a black person as a threat to their own safety.
“We were interested in how people experience prejudice, whether they perceive prejudice to be based on some underlying psychological trait,” said study lead author Elizabeth Clements, a psychology professor at Rutgers University.
In the new study, researchers analyzed data from more than 30,000 participants across the United States who were randomly assigned to either a control condition or a group that had been exposed to a racially charged political message.
Participants were asked to rate the likelihood of seeing a black or white person being a threat, a trait they believed to be related to their underlying psychological traits.
The group that was exposed to the politically charged political news was also randomly assigned a control group, which was composed of the same individuals.
The control group was told that they were a part of a larger group of Americans who were not predispOSED to hate groups, but were actually predisposes to hate white people, a group of people who they considered to be inherently dangerous.
After the group was exposed, participants were asked about their experiences of prejudice and how they felt about it.
In all, the researchers found that, after they were exposed to an emotionally charged political event, the participants who were exposed in the control condition were more likely in their responses to see an individual of a different race as a danger to their safety.
The researchers were particularly interested in people who were predisposing to racial prejudice, and they wanted to understand why people might react to racial slurs in a way that was predispose to prejudice.
“There are some theories that might be plausible that there might be a relationship between racial prejudice and prejudice itself,” said Clements.
For instance, people might respond to racial stereotypes by making assumptions about racial people and their abilities.
This might be because they think that racial groups have an inherent advantage over other groups, and that it’s better to believe that blacks are more dangerous than whites.
But other researchers have suggested that prejudice is more likely due to a number of factors.
One of these is that people can experience racial prejudice through a combination of different experiences.
For one, there are certain experiences that they have that are related to race and prejudice.
People might feel strongly that they are not white, for instance, and this could lead them to see someone who is black as inherently dangerous, or to make assumptions about black people’s character based on their past experiences, Clements said.
And others might have negative experiences that stem from experiences with discrimination in the past.
These negative experiences might contribute to people feeling that they need to hide their biases.
“If you think about it, there’s a lot of stuff that goes into people’s lives that they can’t be exposed to, or don’t think they should be exposed,” Clements explained.
People may also have different expectations about the kinds of people they want to associate with, which could contribute to their reactions to racial and other types of bias.
“For example, people may think they have to be kind and respectful to certain groups, or that they should not treat people with stereotypically low or low status, and be able to treat everyone with respect,” she said.
“This could cause them to be less likely to react in a positive way to a racial slur.”
Clements believes that prejudice and racism are connected.
For people who are predose to discrimination, prejudice and hatred are part of the experience that is creating their prejudice and hate.
And when they experience these experiences, they tend to react negatively to the other person.
“People who are vulnerable to prejudice and discrimination may be particularly prone to feeling prejudiced and negative toward others, because that’s what it is,” she explained.
Clements thinks that it may be possible to reduce prejudice and bias through social norms, and she hopes that understanding how prejudice works in the brain can help researchers develop treatments for people who experience it.
“What we’re doing is trying to understand how the brain processes information that comes in, and how these brain networks can be changed in order to reduce bias and prejudice,” she added.
For Clements and her team, their research offers important insights into the processes behind prejudice and what role racism and discrimination play in how we feel about each other. “It’s
