Ignoring the meaning of colour words and focusing on ink colour takes a degree of self-control The Stroop task is a famous test used to investigate a person's mental performance and involves asking the participant to identify the colour of words.The challenge is managing to identify the correct colour when the word spells out a different colour.
In addition, via our selected preferred partners, we offer BIA (Business Impact Analysis) and BCP tools, as well as a crisis mass alert and notification system.
