Mnid Msytres…Can you read this?

Another reason why we need help editing our writing–and why even when a piece has been proofed numerous times by a handful of different people, we can STILL find mistakes. Obvious errors that make us marvel at how in the world we could have possibly missed them. Well, mystery solved! You can thank your well-designed brain.

My thnaks 2 teh Vrnmt Vramnt for this (I thnik)

Here’s another trick from the Doctor to test your skills. Can you meet this challenge?
We’ve seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time we’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!

To my ‘selected’ strange-minded friends: If you can read the following paragraph, forward it on to your friends with ‘yes’ in the subject line. Only great minds can read this. This is weird, but interesting!

If you can raed this, you have a sgtrane mnid, too.

Can you raed this? Olny 55 people 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 bcuseae the 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! If you can raed this forwrad it.

    This really is amazing! I knew the mind could figure out words from the first and last letters alone, but I didn’t realise that it could also substitute numbers for letters. As you say, it explains why proofreading is so hard. Thank you for sharing this!
