;) I love learning new psychology shiz... rman ive study stuff like this before, but never this particular one. Thanks for the insight.

Try this: Say the color, not the word, written. Example.. if it says blue and the color is purple.. say its purple. You will find it nearly impossible to say the list with any speed.

I wouldn't say easy. It's not nearly as fast as if it were correct colour and word. And if you say different. You're probably floating your boat. It's not neccesarily difficult. ...but it's definently different.

Though, everytime you do it..it gets easier..your mind finds that pattern. Try different variations though.
