Abstract

The present study investigates the visual format of the color carrier word via cAsE mIxInG in the context of two Stroop tests. Using a within-subjects design, thirty participants, consisting of 17 males and 13 females (M= 22 years, SD= 2.3 years) were randomly assigned to either the mixing case test or the standard Stroop test to be completed first and reaction time (RT) was recorded for each test. There was an increased Stroop effect in the mixing case test than in the original Stroop test. Visual format shows an impact in the Stroop effect therefore slowing the RT of participants.
