dc.description.abstractThis study aims to examine the potential effects of mindfulness and experiential avoidance on stroop tasks. Mindfulness is the conscious awareness of nonjudgmental processing of the internal and external stimuli while experiential avoidance is the attempt to ignore negative processing of internal stimuli (e.g., contradicting sentences, trauma, procrastination, etc.). The stroop effect, as defined in the literature, is the idea of task‐irrelevant automatic processing, which takes place before task‐relevant processing (e.g., reading words before its color). Participants in this study include 82 students from a cognitive psychology course at a public university in the south. All participants completed demographic questionnaires and several other measures online pertaining to the aforementioned focus. Data on levels of mindfulness and experiential avoidance were first collected, after which participants were then asked to complete the stroop effect tasks. Data analysis will be conducted in SPSS, and results, discussion, and conclusion will follow.en_US
