Here's another trick of Doctor Dementia to test your skills...

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.

To my 'selected' strong-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 read this, you have a strong mind, too.

Can you read this? Only 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 frowrad it.

I read them both just fine. Kinda (soothing- can't think of the correct word). I am having a real problem thinking of the right words today so I'm glad I passed this one without any problem right now.


I still can't think of the word. When something eases your mind.


In another post I couldn't think of the pressure cookers 'vent'. All I could come up with was 'blow hole'. I'm always close. :scratchhead:

No problem.

If you learned to speed read, you don't really read each word separately. You read groups of words, even paragraphs or sometimes, if the subject matter isn't convoluted, you can read an entire page at a glance. I taught myself to speed read before I was 8. I didn't think anything of it until my uncle came over one day and was talking about the speed reading course he was taking. Mom told him that I could already do it and he wanted me to show him. I remember him quizzing me to find out if I really read it that fast and how astonished he was.


I think the way children are taught to read is very poorly done. I believe that they get caught in the tangle of complexity when it is really quite simple.
