Replication Crisis and Stereotypes | NPR
For NPR ‘Hidden Brain’ podcast for an episode on replication crisis in science but more so focusing on the Shih-Pittinsky study.
Shih-Pittinsky study is about stereotypes on how well Asian women perform doing math problems when they are reminded they are women vs being reminded they are Asian. The first study suggests that when they are reminded they are women they perform not as well as they do when they are reminded they are Asian. They published this story in various science journals and got a lot of praise until they had the test repeated at other universities. Scientifically the replication of the test would prove and show the same results but proved to have very different results when repeated.
