Not sure that it is a specific Alzheimers test but is often used in a longer form as a test of cognitive perception....crops up in many areas eg NLP, Coaching, CBT etc etc

I got 6.... that make me genius apparently, according to david brown, so the test is clearly flawed... and not related to alzheimers...

Looks the same to me :?

This test is actually about the importance of words in language. A non english speaker, and certainly someone who uses a non-latin alphabet, or who is illiterate will always get 6. (perhaps that explains why i got 6 :eek: )

Yes the brain hears it with a v sound, and so represents the character as a v in your mind, rather than an f.
