I took the racial experiment, and I did not like it at all. I was told to hit the ?e? or ?i? keys if the word was either good or bad, or if it was a white or black face. At first faces popped up and white was on the left (I would hit the ?e? button) side and black was on the right side (I would hit the ?i? button). Then words like love, peace, joy (good words) and envy, jealousy, and other bad words would pop up. A word would pop up and I would either hit ?e? or ?I? depending upon which side good, or bad was on. After assigning each by just faces or just words, it started to get harder. Both faces and words would pop up and each was given their own corner. For example one corner might have been black, and good, and the other white and bad, and depending on what popped up, depended on whether you hit ?e or ?I?.
Controlled and automatic processes both play a dominant role in this experiment. Te controlled process is a process in which the individual is completely actively focusing their efforts toward a
