Friday time waster

Count every " F" in the following text:

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

OK, how many "F's did you count? (answer below)







WRONG, THERE ARE 6.

Guaranteed. Read it again.

For some reason, the brain has a tough time processing the word "of". Bet you missed those.

Now.... read the words in the picture below.



Did you say, "A Bird in the Bush"? Look again.

I came across these in a diversity and inclusion seminar. It was amazing to see that only one of 28 participants got the right amount of 'F's" on the first try.

Great excercise to get people to critically examine their viewpoint. We all could and should do that once in a while!

There are two "the"s in the triangle. Most people don't catch the second one.
