Count every “F” in the following text. Count them ONLY ONCE. Do not go back and count them a second time.
Five-winged flies are the result of years of scientific study combined with the experience of many years.
How many “F”s did you count?
There are 6 “F”s. If you got 4 you are above average. To see 5 is very unusual. If you saw all 6 you are remarkable!
Most people miss the “F”s in “of”. When we read we tend to skip short words like “of”; our eyes don’t physically focus on them. Our brain “assumes” their presence and fills in the gaps to make sense automatically.
Mind over Foot
- While sitting, lift your right foot off the ground and make clockwise circles with it.
- While doing this draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand.
Your foot will change direction and there is nothing you can do about it! Let us know if you are the exception to the rule.
