  • Stroop Test


    A stunning demonstration of influence wrapped

    up in a fascinating psychological phenomenon!


      Created by David Jonathan & Nikolas Mavresis

      Stroop Test blends real science with real magic to predict your spectator’s choices 100% of the time.  It is a fantastic icebreaker that checks all the boxes and packs flat so you can carry it wherever you go!

      Here’s what happens:
      A set of Stroop cards is introduced that have the names of the colors printed on them, but the ink is in a different color than what it reads.  After your participant takes the fun psychological test by naming the colors, the premise is pushed even further as you reveal their mind was subliminally influenced during the experiment.  To prove this, they are asked to name a number and the cards are counted to that position.  The color on the card arrived at is shown to match a prediction made before the demonstration even started!

      As an optional second phase, you gather up the Stroop cards and give them a mix. The spectator selects any card, remembers either color on it, then shuffles it back into the packet while your head is turned away.  Without asking any questions, you can divine the exact color they are thinking of!
