  1. Science Fair Project Printoffs

  2. PURPOSE: Purpose: Do we want it to be all capital letters?

  3. Does the mind recognize words or colors faster?

  4. RESEARCH:

  5. Look at the following four letters: tree. If you are like most people, it is difficult for you not to quickly read the word tree. Most humans are so good at reading, at perceiving WHOLE words, that they do not easily notice the individual letters. This is call the Stroop Effect, named after J. R. Stroop(he was the first to test this theory).

  6. HYPOTHESIS:

  7. Based on this research, I think that the mind will read the words faster than it will name the colors. Because of this, I think the majority of people will take longer to read the list with the mixed up words and colors than the list with the same colors and words.

  8. EXPERIMENT/PROCEDURE:

  9. 1. Make a list of colors written using different color ink. 2. Test 10 people by having them say the colors of the words (not the words themselves) in under a minute. Do not tell them the purpose of the test beforehand. 3. Record how many times the word was said instead of the color of font.4. Make a table of the results.

  10. ANALYSIS: and DATA:

  11. CONCLUSION:

  12. My hypothesis was ______.

  13. REAL LIFE APPLICATION:

  14. Ever missed misspelled words while proofreading? This explains why it is so hard. Humans have a tendency to quickly read words. This can also cause people to misread words, because the mind works quick and recognizes it as a different word.
