The SCWT (Stroop Color-Word Test) is a quick and frequently used measure for assessing selective attention and cognitive flexibility. This study determines age, sex and education level influence on attention and cognitive flexibility by CSCWT (Computerized Stroop Color-Word Test) among healthy Iranian children and adults. There were 78 healthy subjects, aged from nine to 69 years, whose selection was done randomly. They have been invited to have physical and mental examinations which were done by neurologist and psychiatrist and then to perform the Stroop test by cognitive neuroscientist. The obtained results pattern showed that the obtained results pattern showed that age, sex and education have no significant impact on selective attention and cognitive flexibility in under studied groups except in few cases which means that personal factors alone have less influence on these measures. The score of selective attention in different age and gender groups and at various educational levels was not similar which indicates that there is no significant correlation between attention level and age, sex and education. These findings were not in line with most recent studies which show the significant influence of demographic variables on Stroop test performance. Personal factors, such as age, sex and education, have no influence on attention and cognition level individually and this measure can be altered through environmental factors like diseases.
