The Stroop Effect With Patterns

Decent Essays
A twist on The Stroop Effect with shapes Everyday we read, talk, breathe and blink. These actions we engage in are automatic because they happen without us thinking about them. Understanding the underlying mechanisms behind our thinking, we can conclude how these processes are affected and manipulated. In the classic Stroop Paradigm (Stroop, 1935), participants were asked to respond to the Color ink and ignore the spelling of the word being displayed. The results conveyed that those in the group that had the same word and color responded faster and then those who had a different color and word. Stroop findings demonstrate the main component of the interference came from reading automatically.
Many have replicated the Stroop Effect and in

Even though they targeted creative people their domain pool was rather small and limited to a specific creative group (design students). In order to verify results, further research should include a larger population and absence of the Stroop interference effect. Another example includes Hilbert, Nakagawa, Bindl, and Bühner (2014), The spatial Stroop effect: A comparison of color-word and position-word interference, they addresses the comparison of the classical color-word paradigm and a position-word interference test by conducting both a manual and a verbal response. The authors refer to different ranges of studies conducted. Such studies of the Stroop paradigm have been replicated, in which they differ in stimuli and experimental setup. In the spatial Stroop effect, they analyzed the word meaning and word position in various settings. Gaps to consider include the lack of evidence towards automatic and voluntary processes, however it doesn’t contradict it either. The limits include the lack of restraint on the number of possible responses and they need to consider the speed at which the read and the…show more content…
To this extent, we can exhort a feasible connection for interference effects with identifying shapes under congruent and incongruent conditions. We hypothesize, and perceive previous research of visual perception of the Stroop effect, that the participants will react significantly slower when presented with incongruent shape trails in comparison to congruent shape
