88%, but only because I majored in psychology and I've seen a Stroop test a dozen times before :)

When I saw it, I immediately thought of the Stroop test too!  (I was a psych major...)

So, what do the results tell you as far as left brain/right brain.  If you got 100% the first time, which side of the brain was working?

I got a 0%.  Then I read the instructions again and scored... another 0%.  Laughing my butt off I tried again and got a 100%.  I guess I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer!

Recent research with the Stroop test that this site is based upon suggests that it's less an issue of left/right than working memory and the function of the hippocampus.

At least, I think so.  It's been four months since I graduated and I remember @#!*-all  :)

Well, the real Stroop test is designed to test frontal lobe function. It tests "response inhibition"...that is, your ability to repress the standard response (answering what the actual word reads rather than the color of the target word.)  People with frontal lobe damage have a very difficult time inhibiting the response, and perform just as poorly on other tests involving concept shifting such as card sorting tests where the "correct" answer changes without warning.  Subjects with frontal lobe damage are unable to take the new information and apply it to their understanding of the game.  They perseverate on the first concept...the first rule they were taught and cannot adapt to the new situation. 


So the good thing is that *most* of you don't have a problem with your frontal lobes!  ;) Fun!

tanuki:  Some doctoral students at my alma mater are doing fascinating research using Stroop and the MWCST, and have had some successing demonstrating a role for the hippocampus and the anterior cingulate in those tasks.  Even though looking at success at those tasks as largely indicative of frontal lobe function is parsimonious, I don't think it tells the whole story.

And just like that, we're the most boring people on LSD (which is, itself, absolutely rife with boring people).
