After subjecting myself to this test I discovered the purpose and summary of the simulation; as well as psychological terms and theories that were used.
First, the hypothesis of the Simulation Exercise was that it is easier to name the color patches than to name the color of words. This further leads to the Simulations purpose which is to prove whether or not automatic processes may at times interfere with ones thinking.

However, when you put color words in front a subject it takes them longer to name the color, simply beca
