~It's All In The Mind~

Only great minds can read this.

This is weird, but interesting!

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 sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm.

Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

The Lnoe Groeovr


  1. It was petrty esay for me to raed, too. Are we gnesuies, or waht? It's hrad to mix up the lterts in wdors lkie tihs. LOL! Hgus.

  2. I've seen that before and yes, I could read it! woohooo but I am NOT going to try to write it heehee

  3. Great minds think alike. I can read it too.

  4. that was cool and I could read it too...we are genius!

  5. It's kind of like deciphering a seven year olds homework when you think about it.

  6. I was reading it before I actually realized it was a sort of test. lol

    Great stuff, Mr. Groover! Thanks. :)

  7. I am starting to have a theory about the intellegence of ex-JSers since we could all read it.

  8. groover, groover, groover. that's amateur stuff compared to some of what i used to copyedit when i worked at a newspaper. and that was from the staff writers. letters to the editor from the general public came in at a whole 'nother level of discombobulation. :P

  9. I have seen that before, heck, I write at least a few words like that every time I type something. Sometimes they get by my proofreading.

  10. I think more than 55 % can read it because everyone here including myself hasn't had a problem.

  11. The ‘55%’ is a more recent addition to this fascinating urban myth. Fascinating because it’s true – that people are easily able to read such text – yet no actual source for it can be found, probably because several research groups have described the phenomenon in various papers. Cambridge is one of the universities mentioned, though Edinburgh and Aberystwyth have been as well. In its first incarnation it was just ‘an English university’.

    Anyone interested in its origins and development should try reading this article from 2003 on the subject.
