The Power Of The Human Mind

My favorite cousin Lisa sent this totally amazing email to me today. It's completely strange, but at the same time fascinating. Only great minds can read this. Can you read this? I could. Does that mean I'm a genius? ( I wish) LOL!!

  1. It really is wild how quickly this can be read and understood! Pretty crazy.

  2. I've seen this before. It has to do with how we see and how we see some letters and not others. I think it's the way I time most of the time. I'm always mess or switching my letters.

  3. Hahahahaha....I guess I have a strange mind ;)

  4. I've seen this before and yes I can read it.

  5. That is nifty. I could read it. I think it helps that I use short hand a lot so I am used to only concentrating on the beginning and ending of a word.

  6. okay mom read it to us, but we already knew she was strange, hehe!

  7. seen it before and it doesn't surprise me because I CAN"T SPELL

  8. I thought spelling was important too! Love this, thanks!

  9. I have seen this before and love to see it every time! I guess the first and last letters are all thats important and who gives a r a about spelling.

  10. I tagged you for a award today. Please go to my blog and check it out. I also have a couple of good giveaways from other blogs to enter.

  11. I got this so many times in my inbox! And it's neat how I was able to read it w/o a glitch. Our brains are just way tooo smart! :)

  12. it's amazing! i didnt have any difficulty reading the paragraph. i don't think it's strange though. it felt like i was reading it the usual way.

  13. You're blog is great... stop by mine to pick up an award...

  14. Thanks for sharing. I guess I must have a strange mind.

    Way back when I was a sales person, we were taught by our sales trainor to practice reading things upside down.

    You see it was his theory that we could use such 'skill' to read papers or items on top of the prospect's table; some kind of a sleuthing skill:-)Weird huh?

    I guess that's where I learned to do the trick.

  15. I've seen this before too, but it is an excellent reminder of how versatile our brains can be.
    Hugs and blessings,
