I received this test some minutes ago. I thought I would share it.

A neurological test from a marketing company? Not sure how serious this really is. Any corroboration from elsewhere?

Oh my God.... Jan 25, 2012

The test is very funny, it seems I don't need a neurologist

Is it serious? Because if it's not, maybe the result is fake and I will need a neurologist soon!

reason for typos Jan 25, 2012

Maybe it is just a gimmick, but if there's any truth in this bit, it would explain why it's so easy to miss typos (your own anyway!):

Hi David,

Of course this is not an official serious neurological test.
So this doesn't substitute visiting a real physician. It's rather a funny test.

Is there a nation... Jan 25, 2012



Cute. Say, is there a nation in which most people go to the neurologist once a year for a check-up?

In Japan, people are encouraged to take a ningen dokku ("human dock") examination once a year, which is a very thorough physical examination which also often includes MRI and PET scans of the brain. The term comes from ships entering dry dock when being overhauled.

This is easy to read because there is a contextual string. Here is a word in isolation:

Facebook stalking Jul 9, 2012

The second part of the test reminded me the numerous Facebook posts I encountered a while ago. Needless to say that it was a pain.
