In today’s world of technology, numbers, and high-pressure situations, it’s more important than ever to be able to retain one’s focus.
Training your brain is just the same as training any other part of your body, which is why reading books and trying your hand at stimulating games like chess and cards are important.
Much in the same vein are brain teasers, optical illusions, and puzzles that really force your brain to move through the gears.
Think you’re a whizz when it comes to such things? Read on below …
Today, we’ve got two challenges laid out for you, both of which are supposed to be completed within a 10-second timeframe.
So, just how good is your brain when it comes to separating things from a crowd?
In the picture below, you’ll see a square full of O’s. Lurking amongst them is a small number of Q’s. Your job is to find these imposters – all of them – in under ten seconds.
How did you do? Find them all?
The trick with that one is to not let your eyes follow their natural reading pattern in looking around the mid-point of the letters. Instead, read along the bottom of the letters and you’ll have an easier time distinguishing the Q’s thanks to their little tails. There are 9 Q’s total, so well done if you got them all.
Next up, we’ve got something trickier.
The following puzzle focuses on numbers in place of letters. Fractions, in fact. As you’ll see, there are a host of 1/4 fractions in the box.
Somewhere in the midst of all of them is a 3/4 hiding. Just one. Can you find it in under 10 seconds?
If you managed to find the 3/4 (hiding in the second line) then well done!
