    The concept behind this seems whole IAT business seems questionable to me, but perhaps not...I'm curious what others think, especially since it is created to identify people like me. The ones who would look a shrink in the eye and lie without hesitation.

    The "sample" I was prompted to take was on my views of China, India and Japan, of all things. I appear to have a basically neutral attitude toward all three, thinking of China only slightly less favorably than Japan and India. No explanation of how it figured this was offered, though I must admit that isn't all that far off my what I actually do think of them.
