VIRAL KNOWLEDGE: The “genioux facts” knowledge news

Extra-condensed knowledge

A recent study of data collected from all 50 states found that implicit bias—a subconscious negative attitude—against older people was most prevalent in the country’s southeastern and northeastern states. 
  • The findings were based on responses of 803,000 people ages 15 to 94 who completed a test involving photos of young and old people and words associated with those images.
  • Age bias might affect how older people are treated in the pandemic.
  • Researchers didn’t determine why certain states showed more bias. One theory is that in states with a large population of retirees, there may be more tension between young and old over how government dollars are spent on things like housing, medical facilities and support networks, says William Chopik, an assistant professor of psychology at Michigan State University and one of the authors of the study.
