Here's a trick of Doctor Dementia to test your skills...


Can you meet these 2 challenges?

We've seen this with the letters out of order, but this is with numbers. Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long long, way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

1. I guess I am okay? Had no problem reading all of it. But the editor in me was

screaming.

2. Lol, Peggy

The past paragraph was like reading a magat sign.

Ps - the researchers are correct, of course.

4. I'm very certain my internal organs will fail me long before my brain ...

My liver in particular, but kidneys and heart are definite candidates

5. Read it with no problem but

Decades of teaching English will do that for you. I shudder when I think of some of the writing I had to work with.

Errr, with which I had to work.

6. Thank you the correction there!

So much more pleasant to read.

Poor grammar is something up with which I shall not put!

7. No problem here, but....

I'm a 'Jumble' fanatic, a crossword addict, and will try any new word problem test on the planet.

It's been a passion since I was a kid, so I'm not sure if it's as good a thing as they say it is. It seems a bit obsessive at times.

12. I'm hooked on deciphering cryptograms in the

newspaper. I've been doing them for so long that sometimes I can read whole phrases quickly, by the size of the word and the patterns of the letters. Those are fairly easy ones, though.

16. I always liked the Jumble because...

I'm dyslexic and when I look at the letters, they arrange themselves and I can see the word right away. The whole puzzle usually takes me as long as it takes to write the letters in the spaces.

8. I read it.

No real problems, but it took ne a little longer than with "regular" English. I'm normally a speed reader, but not with this!

and not hesitating at a word!

13. The same ability that allows us

to read those messages can work against us in some circumstances. For example, if you witness an accident or a crime, you can end up describing what you expected to see rather than what actually happened. Your mind orders things according to what it knows or believes. A good witness sees only what is there, without filling in gaps or expectations.

17. This might sound strange but I have always been good at reading jumbled words.

I actually think it could be my dyslexia that makes it easy.

19. Strangely, read it without hestitation.

But I know I'm losing my marbles/my short-term memory. I'm concerned but husband's seriously worried about me!

At this rate, I'll be ready for "memory care" by age 85.
