I read this quite easily.

I remember early in my education being taught about word shapes.

i have SORT of taught myself how to speed read, but not like they do in those videos. but i did read it all, so its amazing the brain 'reads' by looking at the entire group of words.

thanks for the link!

I love those commercials, and I do believe kids at a ypung age can learn to read. I taught my oldest son to read at age two, with home made flashcards. He amazed everyone! His preschool teachers would have him read to upper classes, and show him off. I wish I had been more educated on the brain and how we learn at such young ages, when my boys were babies, but I didnt know any better. I went by instinct, and look, now somebody makes millions off an idea I did naturally with my own kids.

This reminds me of that "Your Baby Can Read" infomercial. They teach BABIES words with flashcards. Not letters, but words. The kids learn how to read and like 6 months old. It's pretty amazing. I wonder how they do in spelling, though... I be they have to be taught that separately.

I was lucky enough to have a semester in freshman year HS called speed reading. I can consume full lenghth novels in one evening, if uninterupted. One of my favorite classes, and most useful.

That would make sense. The statistic said 45% can't, yet up to page three 100% of at least 10 people could, which would pretty much guarantee the stat is completely made up. But youre right that ATS readers would read a lot more often and therefore would all be able to see the words. Still I kind of doubt that figure because it just seems so easy to me... but then again there are a lot of people who can't really read at all so who knows.

Yes, it didn't take me long to read, and not hard.

We had a project about this, and there we didn't hear anything about that "its only 50 out of 100 who can read it". Our teacher told us it was NORMAL.

And btw that was 7th grade we learned this, thats many many years ago for me.

I don't know about 55/100 people. A little more than 55% can't read english.

I thought everyone could read that way. Well, anyone who can read the language it's written in. As long as the right letters are there, and the first and last are in the right place, I thought (maybe wrongly) that all brains could decode it at normal speed.

Then again your probably right with the stats, when including people that can't read.

Your post reminds me of when I used to work for sky television years ago and a booklet was being handed out and also sent out to new and prospective customers.
I accidentaly discovered a hidden subliminal message in the text which looked very innocent on the surface but when it was pointed out the booklets dissapeared very suddenly from the contact centre,"employees being experimented on I think", - who knows anyway the text on the front of the booklet said "Welcome To Your Sky".
Lets see if any of you can spot the innocent hidden subliminal message in that sentence.
Hint it looks like an order or invitation - I couldnt beleive it when I seen it I had to read and reread it,my brain obviously rebels very easily. Some people tried to explain it away as a coincidence - I didnt think so.
Just to add - you know when financial institutions try and sell you insurance and they say have you thought about what would happpen if the worst should happen yep they do the same thing by planting the seed,only a year or so ago one such institution was training their call centre staff to do exactly that,staff only accredited to introduce not sell and the method employed was to try and use words to paint a picture in the customers mind,part of the training course as an example was to imagine sucking a lemon without screwing your face up,yep I know every company and thier dog employs that one,but a financial institution expecting you to provide sales through service on every call by going into hard sell mode by "Relationship Building" to find out about the circumstances of your cust and then use that info against them to hard sell by painting a not so pretty picture beleive me its disgusting esp from a well known uk bank who in the first qtr of 2010 posted their qtrly results and the billions they had made in profit over every other bank - trust me straight from the horses mouth well suffice to say when they found out that the staff knew what they were up to and were against such a thing they quickly pulled that project from the call centre but applied it in branch to FPM's and IFA's and lead generation employees in branch were also expected to use it.
Just to show you that some people think other's will never stoop so low,I am here to tell you Yes they will so beleive in subliminal messaging and other conspiracys because they do exist but in obvious plain sight not hidden as many of you beleive.

I agree that the vast majority of people should be able to read this sort of thing in their own language. It has been known for many years that we tend to read word patterns/shapes rather than individual letters within words; when we have context and the grammatical structure of the "jumbled" words is otherwise unaffected (and the first and last letters are unchanged), there should be little difficulty in auto-deciphering what we are looking at.

Our brains are remarkably adept at being able to "un-scramble" things, especially visually. Some years ago research was done that involved having people wear special glasses that inverted what they looked at. So, at the beginning of the test sessions, the subjects of the study saw everything upside down, but after a while their brains flipped the images (so to speak ) and they saw things normally again. After removing the glasses they needed a while to readjust, but no-one suffered any long-term effects.

Wow that is amazing how fast I could read that, like zoom and paragraph was done.

I suppose i have a "strange"mind or just not an inferior one hahaha

If you keep the first or first two and last or last two letters (Depending on the word length and complexity) your mind automaticly knows the word.

So its nothing strange about it. 45% of the other people that coultn't read it are just smart enough or haven't read enough books.

I wonder where they got those statistics from? I wonder this mainly because there doesn't seem to be anyone that has a problem reading it. This, to me anyway, throws a kink in their assessments of how many can in fact read it. I think someone just made up that number to make people try to read it and pass it on when they could.

Just my thoughts anyway.

I can read that as well. I learned to read upside down so I could get answers from the teacher's book when I was in school years ago. And I work in a small engine repair shop and they get me to read the engine model and serial number a look of the time become you have to read them upside down and in a mirror a lot of the time. It is funny what your mind can do.

Wow this topic is very revealing... It turns out, many people on ATS can read jumbled characters, but they can't read the perfect paragraph under the jumbled characters, and comprehend the actual point of this thread.




 


Yes, OP, going to the link you provided, then clicking the GROUNDS link, then scrolling down.... It does appear to say "STAY AWAY" at first. I wonder if the people running the website see that.
