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.
