This demonstration version of the Implicit Attribution Task (IAT) presents 5 lists of words to be categorized. The test measures reaction time to categorize the word as belonging to either one or two categories.
Participants are instructed to categorize words as being a flower, insect, positive, or negative by pressing a designated key. The mapping of keys to categories switches after the first 3 blocks.
