Instructions

Select gifts for aliens!
You are going to be picking out some gifts for aliens! You will be shown a variety of objects to choose from and you will also be shown how many items each alien wants. You will then select gifts from a list by adding items to the shopping cart. Once the cart is full or the desired number of gifts is reached, you can press ‘Continue’ and the alien will tell you what they do and do not like. You ‘win’ the game when the alien likes all of the gifts you put in the shopping cart; otherwise you will need to try again. There are some patterns for the gifts each alien has a preference for, and you will need to uncover these as you continue through the game. There are 12 rounds, one for each alien, and after these rounds you will be asked to do an assessment to see whether or not you developed assumptions about aliens.

Here are the names of all the aliens:

If the name starts with J, it means that the alien is from Jupiter. If the name starts with S, it means that the alien is from Saturn.

This score is then normalized based on your response. If you want to learn more about IAT, refer to its website.
