The Stroop Test

Look at the image. Now try to say aloud the colours of the letters that spell out each word. The second set of words should be a lot more difficult for you (assuming that you speak English). This test was actually used by the CIA during the Cold War with the names of the colours in Russian to check if someone who claims not to speak any Russian is really telling the truth.
