    Smile Brain Test...Can you read this?

    I've seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time I've seen it with numbers. Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long, long, way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

    Only great minds can read this. This is weird, but interesting!
    Can you raed this? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseaethe huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

    I have seen these with numbers. For me it was very simple to read-I consider myself a speed reader. I don't need to read all the words to understand a sentence or paragraph. I think it is up in the air about the alzheimer's thing. Do they really have enough medical proof? Alzheimer's runs in our family, and this has always been a scary issue for all of us.

    Seems simple, to me. I don't believe that nonsense about how only 55 out of 100 can read it.

    I could easily read the last with all the letters out of place. Some on this board do it all the time. Reading this board has given me lots of practice.

    it was very easy for me to read. spelling is important, but not 100% necessary to get a message across

    The ability to read with all the numbers and letters out of place is what makes it so hard to proofread something. It is even harder to proofread something you wrote. I worked for a small newspaper, and they wanted us to proofread each others stuff, not our own.

    I read it with ease.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I have lots of trouble with my vision and if I can see the first and last letters of a word, I can usually read it without any problems. I think we have read the words so many times in our lives that our brains have just memorized them without realizing it.

    What a relief, hope you're right about the Fibro Fog, as I also read it easily.

    no problem here....maybe because we are quilters and see what can be rather than just what is in front of us.

    Easy-peasy, especially after teaching grades 1 & 2 for 31 years!!!! I would like to see the actual research results on this that would substantiate the claim of Alzheimer's being a long way off. Hmmmm...maybe I'll go check Snopes. Interesting subject. Thanks for sharing.

    Just bear in mind that Snopes isn't fool-proof.

    Which kind of proves that what we think we see and/or understand/think - may not be what we really saw!

    It also makes me wonder about how accurate 'eye-witness' accounts really are!
