  • Automatic Processing: The Stroop Effect

    Introduction The Stroop Effect, named after John Ridley Stroop, is a phenomenon most know for reading the color that the word is written in, but not the actual word (See figure 1). According to Stroop, “it demonstrates the interference of working memory and the reaction time of a task, often used to illustrate the nature of automatic processing versus conscious visual control” (Stroop, 1935). John Stroop first published his findings in 1935 based on 3 experimental research theories (See figure 2). His first theory compared reading a list of words in black ink while reading the same list of words in different colors. The results showed that there was little to no interference and time difference in the time it took subjects to read both list (Stroop, 1935). He then compared naming the colors…

  • The Stroop Effect On The Brain

    You're probably thinking, “What even is the ‘Stroop Effect’”? Well, the Stroop effect is classified as how our minds work in telling the difference between naming color words, and naming the word’s colors. It was discovered by John Ridley Stroop (Stroop, J.R.) in 1935. And it studies the the interference in verbal reactions. Many people wonder why this still fascinates psychologists. Part of the answer is the effect taps into the essential operations of cognition, which helps us figure out how…

  • The Stroop Test

    This paper explains the effects of the famous Stroop Test, what it means, and why it stumps so many minds. The Stroop Test brings into the field many questions about how the brain works, like whether humans can identify words faster than colors or vice versa. The fascination people have with this test is not because it is easy and fun, but because it is confusing and tricky. A simple task of identifying the color of a word when the color does not match the word seems like a piece of cake…

  • Stroop Task Lab Report

    In measuring the effects of emotion on reaction time, we used a modified version of the Stroop task (Stroop, 1935). In the Stroop task, participants are presented with color words that are not printed in the same color they are spelling. The participants are required to identify the ink color that a color word is printed in and then move on to the next word until they complete the task. Reaction times in this experiment are measured in milliseconds and recorded. In the modified version, also…

  • Stroop Effect Experiment

    findings, the results showed a statistical difference between conditions. Due to inference, the incongruent condition took a longer reaction time because it conflicted with our cognitive processing. This experiment was widely interpreted on Stroop, Windes, and Hintzman, D. L., Carre, F. A., Eskridge, V. L., Owens, A. M., Shaff, S. S., Sparks, M. E. Numerical Stroop Effect Response: What you see is not Always What you Guess…

  • Stroop Effect: Color And Word Meaning

    Stroop Effect: Color and Word Naming John Ridley (J.R.) Stroop, as described by C. Macleod (1991), was born into a farming community and was not expected to live past infancy, so he was sheltered by his family to protect him. Due to not having to do heavy farm work, Stroop focused on his education and graduated top of his class. He eventually received his Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology. Stroop performed the Stroop effect experiment as his dissertation, which was then actually not rediscovered…

  • The Stroop Effect And Reaction Time

    Studies done by Stroop (1992) and Windes (1968) suggest that the Stroop effect occurs when performing a naming task which impacts reaction times. In the Stroop (1992) study found that color naming had a slower reaction time when the color words were printed in a different color, but even slower reaction time occurred when the color and word were completely separate from one another. The current experiment used Stroop task to determine the impacts of reaction times to test the hypothesis to see…

  • Cheerful Ending: Movie Analysis

    The US Theatrical Version (1982, 116 minutes), known as the first form or Domestic Cut. This form was discharged on Betamax and VHS in 1983.

  • Summary: SEL Intervention In Middle Childhood

    SEL interventions for children in middle childhood begin to emphasize supporting children’s development of advanced interpersonal skills and self-control, rather than the more fundamental skill building focus of SEL programs in early childhood (Coelho & Sousa, 2017). It is important for children to have the competency to develop and maintain healthy relationships at school, as these are protective against substance abuse, aggressive behaviors, and both internalizing and externalizing disorders…

  • Cold War Commercial Analysis

    Apple’s not so Cold War Now and then comes an exceptional commercial that you will never forget, not only because of the production but its strategies. Since they can define your view on a brand for years to come. That sensation is the one I had when I watched “1984” ad from Apple. Before the “.com” boom of the 1990s, the front line for tech companies was personal computers. Indeed, the biggest player at the time was “big blue”, IBM. However, competitors are coming along the way such as Apple.…
