Another trick of Doctor Dementia to test your skills...

Can you meet this challenge?

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' strange-minded friends:
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 bcuseaethe 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!

I've never had a problem reading any of those before. It's because our brains do not see words as a whole, like the letters in order, LOVE. Our brains only see the letters that form the word and see them as separate L. O. V. E so no matter what order they are displayed in, some of us can still read the words like EOVL.

I don't have a problem with them either. What I don't understand is why I have such a problem with foreign languages I've studied that are spelled correctly.

They say that only 55 people out of 100 can read that way. I would believe this number to be higher (considering that I never found someone who could not read it). What do you think?

******

I wonder why they only put the percentage at 55% ? Other sites have much higher a percent too.

I studied psychology, took 3 classes in college as my electives and this was one of things we covered in class in PSYCH 1.

I think the way they worded those percentages is flawed, because most sites seems to place the percentage at 55%. What they should have said is that, 55% of those who are normal and have average or above average learning abilities can always read this because it's how everyone's brain is programmed to work so everyone should be able to understand this.

However, the remaining 45% they are referring to is those who have severe learning disabilities. No not people with autism, those people are usually very intelligent (some far more intelligent than we are) they just learn in their own special way. Actually, many people with autism would have fun with these challenges, as they love word puzzles and numbers games. (I have a 2nd cousin with autism, he is very intelligent with pattern, word games, and numbers and very well behaved but he functions on the level of an 8 year old when it comes to his hobbies and interests and he is 34 years old). But I was referring to people that have severe problems that are unable to function but maybe they can read a little. It has also been suggested that some schizophrenics are unable to dechiper this but it all depends. I have met a few schizo's that could work at Nasa building rockets they were so incredibly gifted, but others that were in their own little world and couldn't comprehend some basic things.

Also, people with dyslexia can have problems with this because words already appear jumbled to them anyway however, I believe it may help some people with that condition. If they normally see regular words backwords, well maybe turning it around and showin it to them backwards would cause them to see it the correct way? Just speculation on that one.

But you get the idea. And I highly doubt that 45% of individuals here on earth have a severe mental disbility. I don't mean mental disability like bipolar, depression, anxiety etc. I mean those with learning challenges, to put the term in a non-offensive way.
