    The question of the bat and ball can vary in price to what want really if you say 'more than'. 10p to 0p. Please use logic

    People who answer the cricket bat/ball problem incorrectly do so by misconception, not unconscious bias. Unless trained, we tend to think in terms of so-called simple equations rather the necessary simultaneous equations to solve such problems mentally Isn’t the recognition and elimination of unconscious bias through testing and behaviour modification more dangerous than that alleged bias itself? What kind of precedent for society is set by formally changing biased behaviours through monitoring and testing rather than allowing them, if they exist at all, to change naturally through normal human interaction? I find it hard to believe that this video was produced by an organisation as respected as the Royal Society.

    The board is misdirection, or shortly put not the question at all. The narrator says that "the Bat costs 1Pound more than the ball, aka 1pound 5pence."

    I can't believe she made this video, and did not explain what the answer to the bat and the ball is, for those who want to know, I got you, the ball actually cost $0.05 or 5 cents, reason follows if your interested (using the dollar signs btw); The question is if the bat and the ball cost $1.10 together, and the bat is $1 more than the ball, how much is the ball? The point about this is that unconsciously, you like me, jumped to the ball costing 10 cents. But the question said that the bat cost $1 MORE than the ball, if you don't pay attention to that bit, then you'll get it wrong. Since it's a $1 more, the ball must cost 5 cents and the bat must cost $1.05 to not only be $1 more than the ball exactly but for the two to equal $1.10

    Thought about the ball. Came up with ten pence. Why? I thought of the bat as being a pound more than ten pence. It took me several moments to grapple with the answer. It is a pound more because IT is a pound more than 5 pence (which the ball is), FOR a total of 1 pound, ten pence, not a pound more than 10 pence for a total of 1 pound, 10 pence. You don’t have an unconscious bias, your math is wrong based off of logic you put together in your head, even after thinking, not something you didn’t know about. UGH... I feel like a Russian in grammar school... WHERE IS VODKA?! My head become clearer after drink. I hate English. Why no say bat was 1 pound more than ten pence ball?! Not bat is 1 pound more than total value of ball for total of 1 pound ten pence. Tricks with Semantics? Bleh. Feel like trick question math in high school again.

Unconscious bias training is like something out of communist china or george orwells mind control world...we have instincts for a reason..all part of being free freethinking human beings...stay away from this manipulation training.

    Unconscious bias is actually correct a lot of the time - humans wouldn't have survived if it were not (throughout the 3 million or so years of human evolution, there must have been strong natural selection against genes predisposing people to make incorrect unconscious judgements). It's only in the modern world in certain situations requiring logical analysis where unconscious bias can lead to incorrect conclusions.

    So if everyone is unconsciously biased and it can be applied to just about anything, everyone is a racist weather they like it or not! Unless of course you are omnipotent and have 100% control of your unconscious mind.

    An organization dedicated to science should be dedicated to truth. The science behind unconscious bias isn't there. What little exists is basically useless as a tool for understanding and changing anything whatsoever yet you're going on as though it has been established. This is why people don't trust the scientific community. Whether it be global warming or unconscious bias, once an issue becomes politicized you get absolute garbage coming out of the mouths of the people who should be trustworthy to speak the truth and demonization of anyone who tries to oppose the narrative. Not science.
