To Read or Not To Read
This project aimed to further examine the ability of social priming to reduce an automatic process.
Goldfarb et al. (2011) researched showed that the social concept of dyslexia could lead to the creation of the automatic process of “do not read” as people with dyslexia have difficulty reading. Social concept priming tends to trigger automatic behaviour associated with the primed concept. Leading to participants getting better at the Stroop test. In this project participants reaction time and rate of error in the Stroop test where measured both before and after social priming of dyslexia.
Reaction time was the only aspect to reach a significant result.
