Most people get it wrong on their first try: How many 8’s are hidden in this image?

This is a test of your brain-eye coordination. Most people can solve this if they have all day,  but the thing is, you only have 10 seconds.  The time limit causes most people to fail the challenge on their first try.

This task requires only a few seconds of your time, but it does require you to concentrate intensely while completing it.  So, set your timer for 10 seconds and get ready to count the number eights hidden in this array of letter B’s.

Be aware that most people do not get the answer correctly within the time limit. Now the pressure is on.  Are you up for the challenge? Set your mental timer and get ready, get set, and GO!
