I actually had this shown to me at a lecture for Bachelor of Education (teaching). The mind is an amazing thing. It helps you to undersrtand the different techniques used to teach children to read and write.

yeah! I did this exam about two years ago in some funny competitions in our local community. Its really amazing how we can read even the words are mixed up. I think its because we are seeing errors every now and then and our brains have become used to it already. :-)

I couldn't believe that I could actually understand what I was reading. The phenomanal power of the human mind, according to a research at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without a problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole. Amazing huh? Yeah and I always thought spelling was important! If you can read this forward it........ Very good stuff man. Where did u get this ?

I can read it and I am dyslexic. I think that's how I read a lot of words though. Because I confuse words that are of similar length and start and end with the same letter. Or even if they just start or end the same. Or kind of look the same. Examples of bad ones for freeway driving: nOrTH and sOuTH, and eaST and weST. Those look so similar to me! Why couldn't they have made one direction 4 letters and the opposite 5? I think it was an evil plan to make me choose the wrong way on the freeway!

Wow, that is pretty neat. I think that it also helps that that the words are in a sentence.

I could read it! as quickly and easily as normal, and I agree with you about the mind reading the whole not every single letter, but I'm sorry I can't forward such a message.. cuz it was really annoying to my eyes! but anywayz, you have made your point, but you could've made it by a normal short sentence!

I can read it. Surprisingly, many people on the forums I'm on type like that. It is very very annoying.
