This will blow your mind...


Just do it - don't cheat!


Try this its actually quite good.


But don't cheat!


Count the number of F's in the following text:


FINISHED FILES ARE THE
RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS


Managed it?




Scroll down only after you have counted them!


OK?


How many?



Three?



Wrong, there are six - no joke!


Read again!



FINISHED FILES ARE THE
RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS


The reasoning is the brain cannot
process the word "OF".

Incredible or what?

Anyone who counts all
six F's on the first go is a genius.

Three is normal.
:D :D :D

ok...I thought it was funny..... :D:p

Wahh, incredible. I didn't count the "of" either. Really interesting experiment. What's the explanation for this ?

My wife has just made the test and also counted 3 "f". I expected that she find them all as, being Japanese,. she scrutinised more than I did (it read it in 3sec and she did it in 10sec :rolleyes: ). So it seems to be the same for everybody, regardless of what's their mother-tongue or how attentive they are.

Only found two 'F' the first time, lol (slept only 3 hours last night).

Second time, I reached the average 3. Amazing indeed! ;)

Okay...I did this not too long ago. A friend of mine sent it to me. I think it was a different text, but it was the same test--to see if you could spot all of the f's.

Having known what this was, I went through it several times and still only got 3.

I think I'm brain dead too? :confused:

This was so cool, Den4! I got 3 both times!! I even checked to see if they had changed the wording on me, but it was the same. I completely overlooked the "of"s! 😄
