Do me a favor.....take a good look at this photo, and tell me what you see? What stands out?
Is it a certain letter that draws your eye? or do you somehow....someway see a word?
Does your brain play tricks on you? When you see a jumble of letters, does it try to make sense of it, and form a word in your mind even though it is not there?
If you are all looking at me like I'm insane, that's okay. I was just curious.
I snapped this photo in the office of a coworker a few weeks ago, and every time I look at it my eye travels from the red "A", to the yellow "B" and "Y", and the orange "D". Immediately my brain says, "Birthday!" EVERY TIME.
It reminds me of the email that goes around with a paragraph with all the words scrambled, but we can totally read it. As long as the first letter, some of the middle, and the last letter are right, our brain makes sense of the chaos, and we can totally read it.
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh?
Maybe it is just me....and I am weird. That's okay too!
