These days, tools are widely available to read, check spelling and grammar, so misprints and grammatical errors must be good and truly a thing of the past, right?
Unfortunately, while grammatical programs are profitable, it is not sufficiently developed to detect all errors in a written document. And it’s probably gonna be a lot of time until
But we can’t judge. People are fundamentally flawed, especially when it comes to correctly reading something that we wrote ourselves
Because our brains are playing tricks on us, often to the extent that we just can’t see mistakes that can be quite obvious to expert proofs
You don’t believe me? Look at the following:
Almost all those who use social networks on a regular basis will see this meme at some point or in another
It’s a basic example of how your brain is playing with you. There are two things going on here:
Moreover: 69 reasons
Here’s another classic example:
Or did you have to look twice?
You can’t see? Look at this:
Still trying to find the wrong one?
How about a little help:
Nine out of ten people will not be able to detect errors when they look at these notes
It’s not because they’re idiots or their English skills are missing. It’s again because their brains have done a great job on their troc
In fact, if you make these types of mistakes on a regular basis, you have to give yourself a big ass on your back for your superior brain power
In an article that was published in
When your brain starts to generalize sentences, you don’t really see what it says on this page. You don’t read anymore, you fill in the blanks. And that’s how mistakes made
Certified proofreaders know how to make sure that the brain is in read mode and not in recognition mode. Look at them
The difficulties you may encounter when you try to demodit do not stop
Look at this:
Again, most people will fight this seemingly simple task and take much longer to read these words than usual
You have a Schrop effect to thank for that
The effect of the Stroop is a perfect example of how easily our brain is confusing in reading
So the qualified proofreader is struggling with this problem? Apparently not
The following illusions emphasize why misprints and misspelled words are so hard to catch people who don’t have hard proof of proof
If you really want to read your own writing, there’s a good chance you’ll be captured by this type of thing
In fact, people finally stopped being able to stumble. The brain goes into recognition mode, and the errors are hidden in a larger sentence
So, what makes the proofs like this special?
In addition to knowledge and understanding of the English agreements and grammar rules, the proofreaders have not seen your work before. Thus, they read the text for the first time and are more likely to find the bugs you missed
Below is an example for you
The following sentence shows the number of Fs
It is surprising that a large number of people get this right wrong
You count six? If not, how did you miss so many phrases?
There are two great explanations for this fascinating phenomenon:
Still think reading is easy?
The truth is that it is almost impossible to detect all bugs in your own record. You just can’t trust your own eyes and your brain
