This paper analyzes the use and significance of the Stroop test. It also looks at the scope of reliability of the test. It examines three studies that were conducted using differing forms of stimuli during the test. The paper hypothesizes that the studies will indicate that there is no significant difference in the type of stimuli used and the ability of the individual to perform the test.

From the Paper:

"BermUdez and Ruiz-Caballero (1997) conducted a Stroop Test in which emotions were evaluated (p. 195). The test listed various words associated with positive or negative emotions that were listed in different colors. The participants were then asked to relay the printed colors rather than the words. The researchers found that in regard to the positive words used, the participants had a faster response time. However, when the negative words were used the response time was significantly longer for the respondents. The study indicates, therefore, that there is a strong indication that the stimulus has an impact on the participants of the Stroop Test."
