We are designed to seek patterns and find recognition. I just find it so cool that we are created, in part, simply to understand the world around us.

Masago said...

Very interesting. Thank you.

It is asrubd to didvie poplee itno good and bad. Pploee are eeithr crmianhg or tideuos.
I have read about this phenom..
and I am convinced that it is just an excuse for poor spelling habits!

Jennifer said...

Headache. Should I feel retarded that I missed two or three words and had to go back to figure them out? So I guess being human really is all about context.

Tom Atkins said...

Ah ha! I am among the world's worst spellers and now I finally have scientific proof of what I've said all along - it really doesn't matter!

Great fun!

Strange but true... no problem reading it, and there was this other one circulated through e-mail not too long ago.

Irene said...

Cynthia: True. Sometimes, we are smarter than we think. ;p

Masago: Glad you liked it. Thanks for visiting!

Homo Escapeons: Hmmmm. But I can be either charmingly tedious or tediously charming...

Jennigirl: It's not the jumbled letters giving you a headache. It's the continuous deprivation of sleep. :p

Tom: My poet is actually a poor speller??? I am aghast at this revelation! ;p

Cergie: Thanks, pretty! =)

Handsome Houseband: Uuuuy. Nakuha niya. Pogi na, smart pa pala! ;p

happy thanks giving!

This is how the inmates with 3rd & 4th grade reading levels pass the GED Exams. Their dyslexia and low functionality can be overcompensated by knowing word length and first & last letters of each word. Nice post.

zeroimpact said...

Humans are amazing... right

Michael C said...

I've seen someone do that before. Isn't it interesting how the brain works...well at least most people's brains. Mine's still got a little kink in it.

bahan*kelabu said...

Did you notice in your effort to misspell, you used 'and' twice? But like the words, most people won't notice it.

(Pity that both teams are out of the amazing race asia)

krystyna said...

Irene said...

Prashant: Great to see you here! Hope you visit me again. =) Have a complexity-free weekend! ;p

ShadowFalcon: Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

JR: That's so interesting to learn. Thanks for sharing. =)

ZeroImpact: Have an amazing weekend!

Marvelous Michael: That's ok. I find that some of the most interesting people I come across are precisely the ones with little kinks in their brains. ;p

Bahan Kelabu: I am impressed by your attention to detail! I made the necessary correction already. Thanks for pointing it out. =)

(I know! Too bad our teams are out of the Amazing Race Asia. Oh well...)

Plus Ultra: Tnakhs! Hpapy wekened!

Krystyna: Glad you liked it. Tkae crae, my fnierd! ;p

*Eddison tried ten thousand materials for filaments for his light bulb. He was asked what it was like failing that many times
they asked what it was like to try that many times without results.
He responded
“Results! Why man, I have gotten results, I know several thousand things that don’t work”
that to him, was not failure, but success
A gain of knowledge
Just a little thought provoking information. Never stop trying! :o)

This is the 62nd BLOG I've placed a link for regarding the following idea...

What are your thoughts? comments?

when my daughter was in kindergarden, her teacher was teaching her to visually memorize words rather than to phonetically read them...i thought it was weird then, but it turns out that a lot of teachers are doing that, for the same reason as this post...that we don't actually READ the words, just recognize them. it's pretty cool.


Wow, that explains it, then. My typing isn't the best and sometimes I read something I've typed (like a comment) and think it's fine, but later (after I've hit publish) find it has typos. I thought maybe I was losing it. ;)
