I actually saw this years and years ago in a seminar at work and got all six the first time. The majority of people do not see the "F"s in the OFs as you stated. It's a fun little test.

I love these kinds of things!

Why is it that the brain can make sense of disordered words, but can't keep track of the simple work like "of"??????????

I don't think that we will ever really understand how the brain works!

LOL Ok now here's something to thank on " 85% of all collage grads don't remenber what they read the frist time and have to read it over twice before they remenber it But 95% of dislexis people remenber everything they read the frist time. Now it's not because there smarter. studys shows that they can read missed spelled,messed up words like above better then most.
But then on the other hand 95% of collage students can't remenber colors of pool balls or ballards ball 10mins after they look at them. But 75% of dislexis people can remenber the colors 3 days after looking at them. But 100% of either persons can't match the numbers with the right colors. Here's why all our lifes we have been told "Color doesn't matter " So are brains can't put numbers with colors.
But a chimp can a chimp can match the number with the color every single time, So does that mean that they process numbers or colors better then us or is it they remenber better then us.
Ok now here's the kicker on the reading study done. All of reading was from a 8th grade english book.

Wow, that eye test thing is kinda freaky. I think I'm going to go try it on some people.
I don't think it will ever work again even with different sentances since I'd know to remember to look at the of's.

Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)
