Abstract: The original Stroop task combined colors and words. However, recent research has demonstrated that Stroop-like interference can also be obtained without words. Whether or not the nonverbal tasks measure the same processes as the color-word task was investigated in this study. Participants completed two different nonverbal Stroop tasks as well as a color-word Stroop task. Results show that both nonverbal Stroop tasks are significantly correlated with the color-word Stroop task. This finding suggests that nonverbal Stroop tasks and the color-word Stroop task measure similar underlying processes.
