Riddle: Count the Number of 'Fs'

A quick test of intelligence. Don't cheat! Because if you do, the test will be no fun.

There are no tricks to the test. Read this sentence:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.


Now count aloud the F's in that sentence. Important, count them ONLY ONCE: do not go back and count them again


THE ANSWER:


One of average intelligence finds three of them. If you spotted four, you're above average. If you got five, you can turn your nose at most anybody. If you caught six, you are a genius. There is no catch. Many people forget the "OF"'s. The human brain tends to see them as V's and not F's.
