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, syas it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl 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? Yaeh and I awlyas thought slpeling was ipmorantt.


  1. wow! that is freaky... i can actually read that with ease, best done by skimming quickly. cool experiment!

  2. What I found really strange, my son that is in special ed that has so much trouble with language and reading ... has an easier time reading this than he does a regular paragraph! He could read this rather easily, had it been written correctly, he'd struggle through it!

  3. Wow, absolutely amazing! My son is dyslexic and read it much quicker than I did. I also tried skimming and it was easy! What a crazy idea!
    That was fun!
