Since the psychopath test was so popular, here's another one for you. Make sure not to give away the answer in your responses, or else those of us that check the "Active Topics" list may not get the full experience.

Here goes:

Count the number of Fs in the following phrase:


FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI-
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...



O.K., how many did you get?

Warning, Spoiler:
The answer is 6! Did you say 3? Check again! See if you can find all 6!

I bet you missed the "of"s, which are very hard for the brain to process, for some reason. The normal answer to this question is 3, so if you said that, don't worry, you don't really have Alzheimer's. However, if you got it right (6), then you are a genius!

I got 6 the first time, then doubted myself and recounted and got only 3. How weird is that?

Got it right the first time... What does that mean?

I didn't get the normal or correct number, so I guess I fall between genius and Alzheimer's, I can't remember which. \:\)
