Small test

Count, how many "F"s are in the following text?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++
FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Finished?!
Please do not continue until you have read it!
OK?

(You have to mark the text with your mouse in order to see it) Wink

Your Result:
How many? Three?
False. There are six F's. This is no joke!
Go back and read again!
Explanation shortly...

Explanation:
Our brain doesn't count the word "OF"
Wierd, isn't it?

- If you found six in the first attempt - You're a genius.
- Four or five is good.
- Three is normal.
- Less than 3... you should buy new glasses.

Teh eovultoin of lnagauge nad hwo uor bairn parses lnagauge is a rllaey intreestnig sbujcet. My splleing is trrelbe but odds aer yuo udnresootd prefctely waht I wos syaing. If tihs is so, tehn why do proper spelling and grammar actually matter?
It's easy really : so spelling bees can be good at something jk. Nah the real reason is because this spelling trick onlys works because our brain is familiar with words and the context is quite clear and unambiguous. The same reason shawty's famous sentence works too, our brain is so familair with grammatical structure that we quickly learn that the most efficient way to extract useful content from a paragraph is to ignore grammar, tense and spelling of the words in the passage we read. Smile Sometimes though this can backfire spectaularly as exampls like shawty's famous sentence show. Optical illusions work under a simple principle too, like it or not, our brain "constructs" the world around us from guessing alot and it gets stuff wrong a lot.

Note : I spelt parses correctly purely because it's not a frequently used word so your brain is more inclined to have difficulty parsing mispelt forms of it e.g prsasing. of course now you have no trouble understanding it. Smile
