Address your unconscious bias│ Lesson 5 / 10

What Does It Take To Change Our Brains?

3 Mins

Quiz 1 of 2

Your colleague thinks changing your brain sounds weird and impossible. What can you tell him?

a
Our brains are programmed to make associations quickly based on past experiences. When we’re exposed to new things, our brains change and make different associations.
b
You’re not changing your brain, you’re really just transforming it.
c
If he’s unhappy with the way he changes his brain’s associations, he can always go back to his old biases.
d
Calling something “weird” is just another example of an unconscious bias. Once he changes the way he thinks and addresses that bias, he won’t think it’s “weird” anymore.
