wow!

When I first read what you wrote I thought it would be easy to say the colour and not the word, but it isn't tso much.

It's quite hard: specially when I've had the inverse (example: blue colour green writen-greene colour blue written).

i thought so too :smile: !

Most people stumble quickly, as they confuse the color of the print with the meaning of the word. This exercise underscores the intricate interaction between perception and interpretation. :rolleyes:

it is easy if your mother toung is not english and you read the colour in your mother language.

You probably won't believe it, but lady did this illusion at my school and a 4 year old girl
was in the class. She stood up and did it perfect!
Want to know why? It was b/c she could't read!

Funny, I read all of them the first time and though that was not hard, but then I realized I read the directions wrong and had to say what the colour of the type was and found it very difficult to do.

Just look at the last letter when you read them. It simplifies things greatly.

yeah your theory really explains it in a different way. :smile:

The reason this is so difficult is because the act of reading happens so automatically, it is almost impossible to turn it off.
 
  • #11
yeah awesome research!
 
  • #12
Did it boggle your mind :confused:

i don't know, i found it ridiculously easy to do. anyone else on my side of the table?

Interesting. I had the most difficulty with the longer words. I tried to make a conscious effort not to read the words but the longer ones stand out before I even get to them.

I stumbled on the pink one that reads black because the pink color is light and right below it is the word yellow in strong black letters. It's confusing just to explain them as different things.

Yes, I had some difficulty answering them quickly.

I didn't have all that much difficulty. *shrug*

I've never had a problem with this(maybe a few on the 1,000 times I tried it before :rolleyes: )
 
  • #17
I second T@P on this.
 
  • #18
maybe its because i have a tendency to miss the obvious? idk
 
  • #19
