The stroop effect is widely studied effect in psychology where it is harder and takes longer for the color a word to be printed in to be determined if that color does not match the text, then vice-versa.
This test requires that your device have a keyboard to be taken. During the test you should place your fingers on the r, g, b, o, and p keys. Words will be shown you in either red, green, blue, orange, or purple. You must press the corresponding key as quickly as you can. If the word shows up printed in red, press the r key, etc.
You will be shown eighty five words in the test. It should take 3-5 minutes to complete.
Before you start, make sure you have read the test procedure (above).
Put your fingers on the r,g,b,o and p keys. Press the space bar to start.

This interactive test also contains a short research survey (2-5 minutes). You do not have to answer these questions to get your results, you can just skip through them if you want. We would prefer you helped out our research though!

You have completed the stroop test.
When the color of the word matched, your median response time was milliseconds.
When the color of the word did not match, your median response time was milliseconds.
It usually takes people about 400ms longer to provide the correct answer when the color of the word does not match the meaning of the word than when it does.
