I've got a question on the Stroop task.
I just did the Stroop test in a cognitive evaluation session and I apparently excelled since I was the fastest in that study sample so far and my performance got faster over time which seems to be highly unusual.

Does anybody have any resources where I can read about the Stroop task's purpose or how this could be interpreted?

Thank you but I already read the wikipedia entry.
Maybe someone knows some books, studies and the like which focus on the Stroops Task purpose or validity...etc.

Sorry, a lot of the time questions on here can be answered with a simple link so that's what I did. So many studies/me being tired I wasn't sure how to narrow it down. Scholary papers on the stroop test from a google search there were a ton.
