    OT - Have Fun With This One!

    Subject: FW: Alzheimers eye test

    HAVE FUN WITH THIS ONE

    Test your eyes

    ALZHEIMERS' EYE TEST

    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.

    Oh man! I only counted three the first time, and the really sad thing is that I've seen this before! Right before I started I said to myself "remember to count to f's in 'of' " and I still missed them!

    Seems most folks can't read it correctly.

    An illustration of our perception. A good lesson in humility, both of these.
    At first I was wondering why the word "The" was in there twice but then I got it. I'm a bit slow today.

    That's interesting but not all surprising Stephanie. I've seen this a couple of times before at work. Brought it home and gave it to my wife and she said "where have you been?! the dinner's getting cold. I wish you'd phoned me........"

    No, but seriously, she got the six Fs......no problem; adding to my dented male (mail USA.) ego.

    Is this one of these items where the women have the advantage due to different thought processing in men and women?
