There may be implicit associative processes of various kinds, but, as argued earlier, a great deal of implicit propositional reasoning also takes place. 13 Third, type 1 processes are sometimes characterized as biased and type 2 ones as normative.

Her implicit belief inclines her to give lower grades to her black students, though her explicit belief dictates that she take steps to resist this and grade impartially. Here the conditions for override are less likely to hold. Since grading places a heavy load on working memory, Juliet may not recall her explicit belief at all, and if she does she may not realize what it requires of her in each case. These failures of competence may be compounded by motivational failure. If Juliet’s metacognitive motivation is relatively weak, she may not make the effort required to recall and consistently apply her explicit belief, and when she does she may not have the resolution required to overcome her gut feelings about what grades different students deserve.
