Privileges and Perils of Power

By Dr. Cedar Barstow, M.Ed., C.H.T., D.P.I.

Power, simply the ability to have an effect or to have influence, is a magnetic, addictive, and corrupting force. Research shows that taking on higher role power or having higher rank power inevitably changes you. You are given gifts, actually privileges, from the outside world that change how you see yourself, how you see and relate to others, and how they see and relate to you. The greater the power difference the greater the effect. These privileges change you whether your intentions are for service or for selfish gain.

The IAT

At the heart of the book Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People is a method called the Implicit Association Test (IAT) which was designed by Tony Greenwald to detect the hidden contents of the mind. Its original application was to explore the group-based preferences, stereotype, and identities that may not be accessible to conscious awareness. Since then, it has been used widely to study preferences, beliefs, and identity, and found applications in domains of health, education, business, government, the law and law enforcement. The test is currently available at 39 country sites, in 25 languages.
