Abstract

(from the introduction) In this chapter, C. Ó Ciardha and M. Gormley demonstrate how the modified Stroop task can be used to assess the direction of sexual interests. They use images instead words so that the task becomes to name the colour of an image rather than of a word. Images can then be used to depict either male adults, female adults, male children or female children. They demonstrate that responses to images of adults in this modified Stroop task could be used to identify adult males' gender preference. This chapter is also of interest because it reports research suggesting that combining IAT and Stroop methods can give more powerful identification of sexual interests.
