 If someone has a negative attitude toward a particular individual or group, for example, what are the potential implications of their behavior toward that individual or group? How do implicit and explicit attitudes differ?

if someone has a negative attitude toward a particular group or individual, the chances are that they will have a abd behavior towards the group as well.

Although implicit and explicit attitudes are not the "same" they frequently overlap (e.g. people that are explicitly racist are usually implicitly racist). Both are a positive or negative feeling towards an object. The primary difference between the two is found in conscious awareness of a particular attitude and how the attitude is expressed. Implicit attitudes are unconscious while explicit attitudes are conscious. Explicit attitudes are tempered by things like social desirability. Work with implicit attitudes tests like the IAT have shown implicit biases against things like race, age and sex. Most people do not explicitly subscribe to these biases but still unconsciously harbor latent preferences.
