The Stroop Color and Word Test is based on the observation that individuals can read words much faster than they can identify and name colors. The cognitive dimension tapped by the Stroop is associated with cognitive flexibility, resistance to interference from outside stimuli, creativity, and psychopathology—all of which influence the individual’s ability to cope with cognitive stress and process complex input. It measures cognitive processing and provides valuable diagnostic information on brain dysfunction and cognition.
Note: Stopwatch is required for administration.
