Want to help a bigot become a better person? Get in bed with them (but not in *that* way). Conventional wisdom says you can’t change someone’s deep-seated personal beliefs, but a new study may have proven the opposite. Researchers at Northwestern University performed ‘counter stereotype training’ on a group of study participants with biased attitudes toward race and gender by showing them images that went against their own biases, then encouraged them to take a 90-minute nap. After the nap, they were reminded of the anti-bias imagery with sound cues. This process resulted in a change in their attitudes toward groups to which they’d previously displayed prejudice. Do you think people can change? Have you witnessed such transformation firsthand? Share your experiences in the comments.
