GENDER AND CULTURAL PERFORMANCE DIFFERENCES ON THE STROOP COLOR AND WORD TEST: A COMPARATIVE STUDY
Abstract:This study primarily aimed at determining gender and cross-cultural performance differences among Kuwaiti and British male and female subjects on the Stroop Color and Word Test. A total of 210 university students, 140 Kuwaiti and 70 British, participated in the study, and were subjected to the Stroop Color and Word Test. The study sought to validate the hypothesis that females by and large displayed more differential interference than did males across cultures. Our study revealed Kuwaiti college students displaying and achieving greater interference than did their British counterparts, with no gender differences observed on Stroop interferences. Based on these findings, it was concluded that though Stroop interference had no gender correlation, it showed potential predilection to cultural variables in cognition.
