How many 'F's ?


Check this out............ and no cheating !!
Test Your Brain
Count every "F" in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.....
HOW MANY 'F's?



Count them again.



WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke..


READ IT AGAIN !

Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 'F's before you scroll down.

The reasoning behind this is further down.




The brain cannot process "OF".

F INISHED F ILES ARE THE RE
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
F IC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.....
Incredible or what?

Anyone who counts all 6 'F's on the first go is a genius.
Three is normal, four is quite rare.
Send this to your friends.
It will drive them crazy.!
And keep them occupied
For several minutes..!

Re: How many 'F's ?

It's quite simple really, just to look at each letter on its own rather than read the word. When you have difficulty with words you tend to break them up anyway, maybe that helped.

Re: How many 'F's ?

It's a bit like an annoyed comment by my elder brother when, in my teens, I used to help him in construction work. He'd sometimes shout at  me: there's no "F" in hammer.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: How many 'F's ?

Trick question.....
see... what the OP really  means is ... how many letters that sound like EFF....
Undecidedas the F in OF sounds like a V... (OV)...
