How Smart is your Right Foot

How Smart is your Right Foot?

Most people find this test a little bizarre and no matter how many times you try it the result is always the same. You can try and try to change the direction (turn of foot) But! You cannot do it!

What we are attempting to do is see how smart our RIGHT FOOT really is?

Instructions:

While you are sitting look at the computer screen on your computer; Take the test.

Lift your right foot up off the floor and make CLOCKWISE circles.

At the same time lift your right arm up and start to draw a number 6 in the air; GOOD!

Notice that your right foot has now changed direction? It is now turning ANTI-CLOCKWISE

Funny that!

Do it again and just to see that you got it RIGHT!

What a simple test, and it was easy, sometimes we need to do it few time just to make sure our right foot did change directions, yours did change directions? Did it not? Whoops! Do it again!

Got it right this time! Your foot did change direction and there is nothing you can do about it! The how smart is your right foot test is a demonstration of interference in the reaction time of a particular task.

This task is called the Stroop Test; the Stroop effect is a demonstration of interference in the reaction time of a particular task. The effect is named after John Ridley Stroop who first published the effect in English in 1935. (Wikipedia) It is still used today in neuropsychological evaluations which measure mental vitality and flexibility, as the test requires strong attention, inhibition and self-regulation capability.
