Much ado about…..


Can you read this? Bet you can.

The mind is a powerful thing which does not need to “register” every letter of every word to fully understand what it is reading. Many speed readers know this, using this technique to help them read faster.

There is a post in the wordpress forum about pet peeves, incorrectly used grammar, spelling, and even text talk indicating a real dislike for all of the above.

But the fact of the matter is the brain is much more powerful and really does not care what letters are messed up, the brain will figure it out anyhow.

See if you too can apply this technique. At first you may want to slow down and “try to make out each word” even correct the words spelling in you head while reading, but the faster your eyes move through the paragraph, the easier it becomes. The paragraph explains the technique, if you can read it.

Try it and see for yourself.


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.
