100%. I ignored the color of the word, read the word, and chose the option that wasn't the word.

I did the same and got 100%

Please do not get this locked-up, and spoil the fun. Spammers are being knocked-out by the dozen. You may place your scores but, chatting or other non-forms of such, outside of this topic, are not being tolerated by mods.

I relate this to all who post and not to anyone in particular. Peace to all, and please be nice. Enjoy, and thank you all.

yay- 100% first try! :)

It's actually called the Stroop Effect (Test)- we did it in my intro Psych course.

Here's a couple websites that might be a bit more challenging:

http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/words.html

http://cognitivefun.net/test/2

http://www.thepersonalbest.com/SelfTests/S...sMainFrame.html

for the first site, click 'run experiment'

for the second, at the end you can continue as 'anonymous' to view your results- they will be at the very top of the list

usually the stroop test measures not how many you get right, but the time difference between two different screens- the one where the color and words match, and the one where they don't. Wikipedia says of its purpose:

"This test is considered to measure concentration effectiveness as well as processing speed;[12] and it is commonly part of executive functions test batteries. It has been used to investigate cognitive aspects of disorders such as brain damage,[12] Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder,[14], dementias, or mental disorders"

sorry if I'm going on and on about it- I just find it really interesting :)

Fun stuff!!

- Got 100% on the OP's test but was close to running out of time twice

- got 15.43 seconds then 19.24 seconds on the timed stroop test

- Average of 1.1 second on the individual timed on (100% correct)

- 8.86 for the last test with correct colors/names, 13.547 for different names/colors

My gosh, I had no idea that this would be so interesting. Thanks for the compliments peeps.

I will continue to bring tests as I get them. :D

BTW, it's no fun after you understand the concept to it. Enjoy! :D

I got 100% on the first one too. I didn't really read the word, I just looked at it. For the second one, the second time through took exactly 5.25 seconds more than the first. I didn't do either of the others.

simple, just click on the other word.

however, if there were more than 2 options than one would need to concentrate.

I used a trick that got me 100%

Dont completely see the word, notice the colour, and say it softly,

Now just choose the colour you said.

This greatly avoid confusion.
