I declare that science is gender neutral but my unconscious says otherwise

Just took the Science-Gender test on Harvard's Implicit Association Test site. What I find interesting about the result is that my bias isn't as much as I feared.

Your data suggest a slight association of Male with Science and Female with Liberal Arts compared to Female with Science and Male with Liberal Arts.

... Depending on the magnitude of your result, your automatic preference may be described as 'slight', 'moderate', 'strong', or 'little to no preference'.

(I've snipped portions of the interpretation which may give you more information than necessary if you plan on taking the test. )
