The experiment is a simple stroop effect test with three differently colored words where the subject is asked to press a key on the keyboard that corresponds with the color of the word rather than what color the word says. Introduction the stroop effect describes an experiment about the time it takes to name the color of printed words when you try to name the color in which color words are printed, it takes longer when the color word differs from the ink color than when the color word is the same as the ink color. In psychology, the stroop effect is a demonstration of interference in the reaction time of a task when the name of a color is printed in a color not denoted by the name, naming the color of the word takes longer and is more prone to errors than when the color of the ink matches the name of the color.

It is an effect inside the stroop effect, or an exception to the stroop effect, since it only says that the congruency effect is reduced when two sequential incrongruent trials are presented this exception can be explained through cognitive control mechanisms but this does not mean that the two are the same. It is an investigation into a phenomenon known as the stroop effect, which was first described in 1935 in a now-famous experimental psychology paper by john ridley stroop.

The basic stroop effect involves a set of empirical findings, demonstrating that there is an asymmetry in the observed interference between color-word reading and color naming when reading the names of colors, the background color of the word is relatively easy to ignore. 1 attention theory and the stroop effect author note name, department, university, correspondence address 2 abstract background this paper shall look at the theories of attention theory and in particular, the stroop effect.
