    Quick Psychological Test

    (I have a ton of these if you guys like them!)

    QUIZ: HOW SMART ARE YOU?

    READ this sentence:

    FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
    SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
    IC STUDY COMBINED WITH
    THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.

    Now count aloud the F's in that sentence. Count them
    ONLY ONCE; do not go back and count them again.






    scroll down...
















    ANSWER

    There are six F's in the sentence. One of average
    intelligence finds three of them. If you spotted four,
    you're above average. If you got five, you can turn
    your nose at most anybody. If you caught six, you are
    a genius. There is no catch.

    oh no. after going back to count again (i counted 3 on first try), I still could not find 6 'f's. This is bad.

    No Raindance, there's no catch.

    Don't feel bad though, most people only find 3.

    Raindance, I suspect people miss all the "ofs" in the sentence because they are short words that we all fly over in reading. I know I did!

    Yes Eden, our brains just kind of "skip over" those little prepositions. It's an interesting test of perception.

    I love that one... I have heard that you miss the "of" each time because your mind processes it quickly but it SOUNDS like a V so when counting F's you skip it.

    I see... that was very interesting.

    I finally got the 6 'f's after reading it for the 53th time, with large bold fonts.
