Fear and Implicit Attitudes
Implicit Attitudes and Fears are similar processes. First, they are both based on prior learning experiences that can be firsthand (personal
experience) or secondhand (observed learning). Secondly, they both require a similar emotional processing center known as the amygdala. Lastly, they are
automatically and subconsciously accessed once learned.
