      thankfully i had no bother reading that but i was wondering if 55% of people can read this ok and it says in the statement that the human mind does not read every letter by itself but the word as a whole, what do the the rest, (45% of people) see then?

      According to a research at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole. If you can read this, post it to your wall. Only 55% of people can.

      The 45% of people who can NOT read this do not know how to spell the words so the whole word does not register in their minds. I wonder what they see when they read this?

    I read it no problem and at the same pace I normally would. I really thought I should have stumbled a bit. I bet a lot of it has to do with us seeing the words in lower case. The letter differences might be so well established in our heads it doesn't matter the order as long as we see them. I bet with all caps this would never work since the letters would be too similar.

    I can read it too.  The reason I think it wouldn't work in capital letters is that the shape of the word helps you identify it.
