Quick, interactive brain teaser to test your concentration and cognitive flexibility

Here is a fun and interactive version of the famous Stroop test, often used in neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal eval­u­a­tions to mea­sure response inhibition and cognitive flex­i­bil­ity. Performing well on the test requires strong concentration and self-regulation.

Your job is to name the colors of the words. Do NOT read the words but the color of the ink used to write the words. For example, if the word “GREEN” is printed in a red color, you should say “RED” (and refrain from saying “GREEN”!)


Ready. Set. GO

Speed matters so try to say the colors as fast as you can. A nice feature here: You will be able to record your reaction times.
