  1. When I was little I had a large page with this on it (Mom cut it from some magazine) and I would spend all of my free time trying to do it. I finally said all of the colors around age 10 or so, and to this day I can still do it.


  2. Took me less than 20 seconds without a mistake. I used to be lousy at stuff like that as I’m a word orientated person.

  3. the last time i seen this was in primary school!! brings back memories haha, i was the only 1 in the class who could do it, even the teacher was freaked out! turns out i got autism and cant leave me house, oh well, eggs

  4. omg dis is like so kool mum sez she could do dis wen she woz young and gesswot? i can 2!!!
    do u no wether u can inherit dis stuff or sumthin??? coz this is sooooo fkn kool

  5. its cheatin if you blur your eyes, i got it 1st time 2
    and georgina ur right, its alot easy 4 girls in many brain tests. girls r even better at findin stuff in the frige than guys. proven. boys tend 2 look 4 the word butter writtin on sumthin while girls remember exactly what shape the butter is and find it much quicker,
    exeption 2 all the sissy guys (and gay 1s)
    lol
    ;P

  6. georgina that was NOT tip. this is hard for me and im a girl. so there =P

  7. ya that was reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly easy we did that in class b4. too easy.

  8. I would imagine that people who are better/faster readers would have a more difficult time with this problem. This puzzle is easy for me because I can force myself to focus on a single letter and not read the entire word – but my sister (who is like a super speed-reader – an entire 300 pg book in one evening) found this to be hard.

  9. me and my friends used to do that all the time.I was always the best one to do that. this page was the easiest one ever my 7 year old brother can do it too. thats how easy that was. any 1 who can’t do that is a looser!!!

  10. Wow that was well easy!! it took me praticly like 5 secs. i found it easier doin it backwards. and yes anonymous we are well better and multi tasking cos we have smarter brains so ha! I REST MY CASE! thankyou

  11. Women are better at multitasking because they can’t focus on one thing at a time. Besides, the easiest way is not backwards, the best way is to look at only one letter.

  12. well i did it first time cool!!!
    then realised i had miss read what you were ment to do so was just reading the words!! doh!!
    so tried again (the right way) and struggled, but was proud as i had a brain injury 3 yrs ago! and did better than i thought

  13. It has nothing to do with being a girl! It matters about how developed your brain is. Lefties tend to do this easier that righties!

  14. you guys are ssooooo stupid, girls arn;t smarter, which by saying they are, makes them look stupider then what most people think. and lefties do not do it better, don’t be retarded just becuase you can’t use your right hand like everyone else

  15. Well considering these are always easy for me I seem to be able to control my thinking a little better than some plus I have an IQ of 142 so I don’t get confused by whats there… still always a good test every now and then

  16. i can’t be bothered looking back to see what ur names r but those of u who said “it’s just like READing” and “it’s easy if u can READ” should go back and try READing the instructions

  17. Maybe girl’s brains ARE better. I mean, I did that with no errors in like 30 secs with only a few short gaps, no mistake. My sis and bro…well…my sis did better and even though their eyesights are about the same and she was farther than him, he still didn’t do it all the first time. But I think he didn’t understand when I told him to read the colors.

  18. wow this is easy i think the people saying girls can use both sides of their brains, this is not true, some people can bu i think boys have more math and girls have more reading. personaly i thinnk i am a really good reader and pretty good at math, and im a boy. but anyway i did it the first time no mistakes in 8 seconds. its kinda easy, just focuse a lttle

  19. Lol…acting like a girl ( being a sissy or gay) won’t make it any easier. I’m a guy and i could do this quite easily after a few seconds. But I don’t think anyone can do it quick and on their first try. Boys are better than girls at things the same way girls are better than boys at things.

  20. stop braggin’ people
    uhm it was kinda hard
    i messed up about twice
    if you got it the first time, good for you!
    not everyone is as smart as you

  21. It is cheating if you blur your eyes or things like that. It just depends on your ability to focus something that you rarely do. When you read you focus on the word not the color.

  22. Just like Archie411, I forgot what purple was called, so I said orange. lol it doesn’t say or look orange….I must be getting dumber. Btw, I did a science fair project on this. It’s called the Stroope Effect.

  23. I don’t think I got the right answers… I am color-blind (and yes I am a girl) and all I could see was the green and blue and black and purple. Was that wrong?

  24. hello and i agree with what annie had said ummm get tougher stuff anyway it wuld be more of a challenge not easy

  25. Six seconds. I can read, am not color blind, and looked right at each word in question. I happen to be good at this, but it has nothing to do with one’s IQ.

  26. i did my science fair on this
    it is called the stroop effect
    it was invented by jonh ridley stroop in 1935
    It is a factor that demonstrates the influence of inference on a person’s reaction time.
    it occurs because people actually read words faster then they con recognize colours, so their brain develops a preconceived idea of what the colour will be. but when the colour turns out to not match that idea, their brain receives conflicting signals. the brain must actually deal with those signals and chose the correct one.
    it is also true that is you read slowly (and have not have practice with this) then you will complete this faster, as the strength of those signals is lessened

  27. really, some girls and boys are equal so shut up you retards. if you think you are sooooo smart then you really aren’t, and that was very easy and i’m 12.

  28. Whilst we are on subject of reading and
    visual cognizance,
    PROVE has just the one “O”. I would have
    mentioned it earlier but this IS my 1st visit.

  29. Used to find this really confusing but surprisingly, on this site, I found it a lot easier. I say just focus on the color of the words, not on the letters. ;>

  30. These ones are fairly easy you can either blur your eyes or just read it so fast that the words loose their meaning and it just becomes a colour.

  31. Its so easy!!
    first try got it, its just hard to say the colour the word is, like if it says yellow and its green,
    i tryed to do
    green instead, but i failed XD

  32. im good i could say it all pretty quick without hesitating..imma girl and yes,mayb just may b girl r better. cuuuuzzz..
    GIRLZ RULE BOYZ DRULE
    GIRLS R SASSY BOYZ R ASY
    GIRLS SMART BOYS JUST FART
    im 11 and alittle immature as u can c from what i just said about boyz

  33. i keep messing up on the red (in the color blue). i can read the rest (both color and word) perfectly besides that one.

  34. Got it first time no problem while I was talking to my cousin in Texas who was going nuts over it. I advised her to walk away and come back it would come to her. She got it as soon after I got it. Great stuff!

  35. ….everyone trying to determine whether gender is a major component needs to calm down, because it has nothing to do with it. It all depends on which side of your brain is dominant.

    And really? Some of you need to check your own spelling before trying to call people stupid.

  36. This is very interesting to me since english is not my native language, I still get confused but I don’t say the tranlation of the word, instead I say the word that is similar to that in portuguese(exemple: Purple-“Preto” black in portuguese) or I say the word itself in english, even if I’m saying the collor out loud in portuguese. Wierd uh?
