My friend Marilyn Scher emailed this test to me because she felt I would enjoy taking it. She was right. I usually dismiss random tests because I feel they are bogus. This one may be too, but I felt very satisfied with my good results.
All too often I worry about the onset of dementia. Too many coincidences.
- I can’t find my iPhone.
- I don’t remember sending out an email.
- I take an elevator ride and don’t remember getting in and out.
- I buy clothes, hang them in my closet, and forget to wear them.
- I read a book for a month and then I can’t remember the name of the main character.
So I said what the heck, I’ll take the test. Go ahead, make yourself feel good.
If you can read this OUT LOUD, you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer’s is a long, long way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.
If you can read the following paragraph, you have a very good mind. This is weird, but interesting!

The Eye Test
Can you find the two Bs?

Once you’ve found the B’s, find the 1…
Once you’ve found the 1, find the 6…
Once you’ve found the 6, find the N… (It’s hard!!)
Once you’ve found the N, find the Q…
Here is to many more years of working our brains!!!
