In recent years, it has become something of a trend on the Internet to compete with your friends in different types of puzzles. It can be anything from riddles to solving problems or trying to get the answer to a math problem.
After all, it is always fun to test your skills and limits. It probably has to do with our competitive instinct – which, however, is stronger in some people than in others, but to overcome a challenge so hard that you have to sink your teeth in to pull through… it’s one of the best feelings there is.
These puzzle pictures (below) are no exception. Some challenges are quite tricky – even if the task itself is simple and straightforward.
One of the best memories I have from school is when the teacher deviated from the usual lecture and instead invited us to take part in a different kind of activity. Some friends loved it when we would watch movies, but my favorite was when we had to solve any sort of puzzle or quiz.
Started solved puzzles again
It usually involved math problems. Therefore, it became a bit of an addiction. I would sit and add, subtract, multiply and divide the numbers provided – but one day, the teacher went a whole new direction.
He introduced riddles of various kinds; as well as picture puzzles, or optical illusions, and sometimes it would be something like making our own puzzles and exchange them with the rest of the class. It was always different; we had so much fun.
Recently, I have started getting back to solving puzzles again – and it’s a great mental exercise that my family and I enjoy doing together to pass the time.
That’s why I thought I’d share with you two of the latest puzzles I encountered online.
How many letters can you find?
The challenge is quite simple, but that doesn’t make it easy. Here, your eyes and brain must work together efficiently. Otherwise, it will get tricky.
When I tested them with my colleagues, no one got it right on the first try.
Take a look at this picture filled with O’s, seems normal, right? However, there’s a bunch of Q’s hidden in the picture – How many can you find? You only have 10 seconds to do it!
How many were you able to find in 10 seconds?
It’s probably more than you think at first sight!
Below we will show you the answer, but certainly, the letters are quite hard to tell apart.
Time for the answer
Now it‘s time to see if you got it right, or at least came close.
The right answer is that there are 9 Q’s in the picture!
Feeling like having another go? Thought so!
Now you have the chance to redeem yourself if you didn’t do well on the first puzzle!
Let’s do this! This one’s probably a bit more difficult.
The same principle applies and you only have 10 seconds to solve it – but now you must find all the S’s among the 5’s! How many will you find this time?
How many S’s did you find in 10 seconds?
Here, too, I guess there are more letters than you thought at first sight.
The letter S and the number 5 are almost identical!
Well – next comes the answer!
The correct answer is: there are 10 S’s in the picture!
