Do you have an acrobatic mind?

If you do, you are in the 55% of people who are able to do so, and you able to read this paragraph because your brain sees the first & last letters in their correct position, and the letters in the middle can be in any order.

But it does give me a headache, reading that… :\

Note: I tested this on BF, a fluent English speaker & writer, and he had no idea what it was saying. So I did the experiment in French:

Sleon une édtue de l’Uvinertisé de Cmabrigde, l’odrre des ltteers dnas un mtos n’a pas d’ipmrotncae, la suele coshe ipmrotnate est que la pmeirère et la drenèire soit à la bnnoe pclae. Le rsete peut êrte dnas un dsérorde ttoal et vuos puoevz tujoruos lrie snas porlblème. C’est prace que le creaveu hmauin ne lit pas chuaqe ltetre elle-mmêe, mias le mot cmome un tuot.

And he understood it. But I did, too….if I concentrated really hard.
