    Implicit Bigotry Test

    Yeah, this makes way more sense. Saying it's measuring your personal bias/deep-rooted beliefs is jumping a few steps ahead imo (not that you were doing that, but I know some people who might). Good to hear! I think by nature I'm fairly positive in general, but when I've been down for a long...

    Implicit Bigotry Test

    Your implicit data suggest that you strongly identify more with HAPPY than SAD. This was a welcome surprise (years of depression, currently in a downswing).

    This is actually an awesome idea. Pay someone a slightly inflated amount of rent to live with them, train under them and thereby absorb those habits and traits of theirs which you covet. Like an apprenticeship, but for discipline (or whatever else). Joining the army takes it too far imo.
