In 1935, the psychologist, John Ridley Stroop published about an effect that later became known as the Stroop effect that interferes with a person’s reaction time. If you have the name of a color printed with letters of that color, it will be a whole lot easier to say what color the letters are than if the letters were a different color than the word.

Follow the instructions in this video and write down how many you get right. Beware, it gets harder throughout the game!How did you do? SHARE this article with your friends to see who has the strongest brain!
