The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a 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 in the rghit pclae.

I could read most of it, but the odd word I had to think about. Most of it came to me as if it were in the right order. I don't agree with the statement that only smart people can read it, though. I'm sure dumb people can read most of it too. This is pretty funny though. I was surprised that I could read most of it.

This test is very old. It was sent home by my daughter school years ago. I thought it was fun when I first read it. Then was glad to see my daughter at a young age could read it as well.
