In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

Interesting how the brain works

I was looking at brain teasers and optical illusions and I found a very interesting paragraph from The following is not a riddle, just something interesting.

The paragraph said,

Even though the letters are jumbled in the following paragraph, most people have no trouble reading it!
Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Now that's something!

yeah, i've seen this before. it does make it more difficult to read, and some words which start and end the same way may be confused.

I have seen this too, but it is definitely amazing how the brain can adapt!

Interesting I was able to read it but if the paragraph was much longer I would have gotten a headache.

I think this is so cool. I wonder also works with dyslexic people who switch the orders of letters in words.

can you e-mail me? I wanted to ask you something

Very cute! :) Although I agree with sw/fm; I'd probably get a headache if I tried to read like that for much longer.

Wow, that's weird! I can't believe I could actually read that with no problems!

Did anyone else find that words that had only four letters were slightly more difficult than the rest?
Thanks for sharing, L.
