Test your eyes


Count every "F" in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI-
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...
(SEE BELOW)





HOW MANY ?




3?


WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke.
READ IT AGAIN !


The reasoning behind is further down.




The brain cannot process "OF".


Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!



Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

It might have something to do with the word shape and how we read things. where "of" is a short little word.. its much like to, or, is....

I know when I read I don't pay much attention to the little words but assume or imply them from the bigger words and the sentence structure and the context of the sentence..


I don't know if anyone else does this or not.

Definatly interesting as I counted three :D

Hello.

I guess I was very lucky.

I counted all 6 the first time.

Trust me, I am no genius.
Just an average guy.

Take care.

I even focused on the "f" words
8O
Guess I`m ready for "Assisted Care Facility" note:
not politically incorrect "Nursing Home". Hmmmm...when your children ask if you need "assistance" really beware :lol:

3 as well. Goes with the territory. I try to be careful when typing... and use a spellchecker often, but when reading I only "scan".

I have a feeling Jay does lots of "proofreading" and looking at many documents before they are released, in his job. I don't really think the test has anything to do with anything, other than how one reads.
