Really interesting.... Douglas Hofstadter would like this one. He have spent his life trying to understand how we perceive and process patterns. In this excercise two different levels (language and actual color) step on each other toes. Fascinating !!

Yes I think this is really cool for the brain.

There are two kinds of color blindness and I am in the 1% of colorblind people that has them both so you probably woildnt like my answers?


This is supposed to be a very difficult task. Try to write the names of all 50 states.

This is supposed to be just for fun, yes I know all my 50 states. When I was homeschooling my granddaughter it got in bedded into my brain.

@Sheannutt We know them all, there is some translation loss between writing them and thinking them that causes a haywire in a lot of people.

@azzow2 I know my granddaughter is a lot better at it than I am but she is 100% smart too.

@Sheannutt That is the way it supposes to be.

@azzow2 absolutely, now that she has a son she can teach him.


Are we supposed to say the word as written or the color in which each word is written. You're instructions are a little unclear.

Sorry about that, just say the color you see does not matter what the word is. Your eyes can do weird things like picks up the word and sometimes just the color.

@Sheannutt It's definitely a challenge.


No problem


You're mean!

And I mean that in the very nicest way. It is too late in the day to "concentrate" smile001.gif

It took me a couple times but I can do it LOL even after drinking a couple Mike's lemonade

what she said.
