Reading Test

Too dull and dismal for photography again today so I though I would pass on the following which a friend sent to me.

Only great minds can read this
This is weird, but interesting!

fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too

Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to rsceearh at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! 

I found no difficulty reading it but I put that down to years of deciphering what 5 to 11 yr olds assume to be correct English spelling. lol. It did give my spell checker apoplexy though.


  1. Ha ! I read it perfectly... I am a mother of two dyslexic teenagers !

  2. I am absolutely amazed!! I read that immediately with no hesitation but have huge problems interpreting cartoons and have absolutely no sense of direction whatsoever, I go into a shop and when I come out always walk the wrong way up the street! The brain is a strange and still much misunderstood and under-researched subject in my opinion! Great stuff John, I enjoyed it :)

  3. Blilrniat Jhon.
    I msut be arnexoic too.

  4. I have a similar problem, Jan, with a lack of a sense of direction. I too often set off in the worng direction coming out of shops.
