WRONG, THERE ARE 6 — no joke.

READ IT AGAIN !

Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F’s before you scroll down.

Anyone who counts all 6 “F’s” on the first go is a genius.

Three is normal, four is quite rare.

Send this to your friends.
It will drive them crazy.!
And keep them occupied
For several minutes..! “

    I thought it would be easier, but at least I got all but one of them.

    This is not the full test… there is supposed to be a line before it says go back and check that says Finished? that is were the 6th F comes from

    I counted six on my first try, any of my friends would’ve too. How is this supposed to be tricky?


  8. antti | Guest

    I don´t feel genious, but I count right away all the 6


  9. Christy | Guest

    wow i didn’t have a clue where the other F’s are very tricky
    I didn’t no you had to start with first sentence

    it doesn’t test intelligence (nor does any other “intelligence test” under the sun…;), it tests reading style. if i had been asked how many “f”s there were AFTER seeing the text, and pressed for a quick answer, i would have said 3, because when i read i read only nouns and verbs, and go back to peruse “lesser” words if i cant take the point from the initial scan. as it was, i was primed to look for shapes, instead of READING.

    I had no problem with this. Because I am an f-word genius. the trick is to move your mouth while you read it and pay attention every time your bottom lip touches your top teeth.


    And use f-words more often.

    Hey chris, regarding your comments: ‘it doesn’t test intelligence (nor does any other “intelligence test” under the sun…), it tests reading style. if i had been asked how many “f”s there were AFTER seeing the text, and pressed for a quick answer, i would have said 3, because when i read i read only nouns and verbs, and go back to peruse “lesser” words if i cant take the point from the initial scan. as it was, i was primed to look for shapes, instead of READING.’ …


    … blah, blah, blah … excuses, excuses, excuses.

    I counted seven.

    Uh, sorry to burst your bubble Janette, but Chris’ comment clearly implies that he DID get the correct answer, but is intelligent enough to understand why he did and under what circumstances he would not have.
