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 ra ed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

  • rdanieg < This is the only word I really had to work on because I was expecting it to be wtirnig.

  • I don’t think that it is only great minds that could read that as 55% were able to. I’d say that 55% of the population don’t need to spell properly in their internal notebook 🙂

  • Petrty cool. I cluod read it!
