Read the sentence below and count the F's in that sentence. Count them ONLY ONCE. Do not go back and count them again.

I said "1" because I took case sensitivity into it.

I came up with 6 as well just in case I was being TOO paranoid about the questions "trickiness" :P

In general:
A person of average intelligence finds three of them.
If you spotted four, you're above average.
If you got five, you're at the highest levels.
If you caught six, you are a genius.
There is no catch.
Many people forget the "OF"'s.
The human brain tends to see them as V's and not F's.


I would love to see what the source of your information is ... The highlighted sentence doesn't seem to be correct to me.

As a true story I nearly failed a paper once, all for the sake of spelling "of" after I´d exhausted all the variations of using "v" (believe you me, stress can certainly take over) I suddenly clicked.
As a little footnote : I told my doctor I had trouble pronouncing the letters "f" and "t" when saying a sentence, he replied "Well you can´t say fairer than that "
