Female Brain or a Male Brain - TEST

Well do you have a male brian or a female brain?

Check this..! (this worked for me mustwork for others too!)

This

is called the quick eye exam!

Quick Eye Exam... This will blow your mind...!

Just do it - don't cheat!!!

Try this its actually quite good.

But don't cheat!

Count the number of F's in the following text in 15 seconds:


FINISHED FILES ARE THE
RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS

Managed it?

Scroll down only after you have counted them!

OK?





































































How many?

Three? (You r definitely male!!!)

Wrong, there are six - no joke!

Read again!



FINISHED FILES ARE THE
RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS



The reasoning is ...

The MALE brain cannot process the word "OF".

Incredible or what?

Anyone who counts all six F's on the first go has a brain of a Female

You can test this by asking a Guy/Girl near you to work it out.

I counted six. Should I be concerned?

Six. But I suspect it has more to being "detail oriented" than being of a given gender, and I suspect that the average Rancher is more likely to find six than three. Go try this on the Budweiser Frogs Fan Forums, and I suspect you'll get the answers you're looking for.

but my approach was to scan through the paragraph backwards.
maybe that classifies me into Alien Brain

In the allotted 15 seconds I scanned the paragraph twice.
First time, I got 3, next time I got 6.

Make of that what you will :roll:

Me too. Then I gave it another F for its horrendous sentence structure.

I got six, because this is a very old one, that I have seen over and over again for like at least 10 years. So I know to count the Fs in the OF(s)

Now, what do you read here

The program I wrote correctly counted six. Granted, it took approximately 45 seconds to write the perl code on the command line and then copy and paste the text.

But seriously, I got five the first time through and then six on the second pass, both times reading it forward. I missed the second "of" the first time through. Since I got two of the three "trick" F's, my brain is 67% girlie?

<MANIACAL_RANT>
Ya know, rather than discussing the supposed differences between groups of people, it would make more sense to discuss how each person as an individual can do the most with what ever talents, experiences, handicaps, wants and desires that person has? Putting stereotyping labels on anyone does more harm than good to you and them. I know, I know... this "test" is just meaningless drivel. But there have been similar tests here before. While no one such test is going to prove to be THE downfall of individual rights, they all just contribute to the idea that simple tests can used to pigeon-hole people into restrictive niches.

Put this thread together with the one on why there aren't more women on JavaRanch, and all of a sudden we'll use this letter-counting test to decide whether or not to hire someone. "If you count six F's, then you must be a female, so you can't be a logical thinker."

You have multiple personalities, with at least one of each gender?

This is bad. I could only count three...even after I was told there were 6 I could only count three. Not good.

Does this mean that my brain is way too male?

I don't know about the male/female aspects of it. The first time I saw this puzzle, I got three and my female friend got zero. What's that say?

I think it has something to do with the F in "of" not being pronounced like F. I once played a game where we were given a letter and a set of categories, the object being to come up with words starting with the letter and fitting the categories. My (male) friend, for F and city, came up with Philadelphia ... and he spelled it correctly! It wasn't until we compared answers that he started laughing at himself. (We all joined in. Have to show support for these things.)
