Two questionnaires were used as well as two Implicit Association Tests (IATs). 60 participants, 23 men and 37 women, mean age 19.5, took part. The results showed that humanists are as prejudiced as normativists. Social dominance and right-wing authoritarianism were not good at predicting prejudice. There existed generalized prejudice. The results from the explicit tests did not accord with the implicit tests. The latter showed strong implicit prejudice. In the discussion the need for more research on personality traits and prejudice was stressed. (Less)
