Dh showed this to me… and I could! It must be the alien in me. Are you an alien too? 😆

fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too

Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg.

The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid! Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

The rset can be a taotl mses and you can siltl raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

  1. I’m a teacher so I know why I can read it. But I don’t believe the stat that 55 out of 100 can read it. I think it would be higher. I’ve seen this before and thought I read that MOST people could read something like that.

  2. I’m SO an alien! I stumbled through the first sentence, but then picked up speed and was reading as fast as normal by the time I got to the third sentence. How cool! Of course, I still prefer proper spelling (sorry, I was an English major).

  3. most definitely – maybe it’s just people like LOVE to read – we read so fast sometimes that we’ve trained our brains somehow!!! – or it’s because I’m inately a terrible speller anyway 🙂
