Scientist believe that those who are unable to find the number seven in the chart might suffer from a form of brain damage that often goes undetected. This particular brain damage manifests itself as a mental block when certain specific patterns are presented to the brain of affected subjects. These individuals are often forgetful and present other symptoms which alone might seem normal, but when seen as a group of symptoms are indicative of this serious brain disorder. The symptoms which are always present are listed here:
- Feeling Tired
- Prone to over eating
- The inability to realize that this is just a joke
- Gotcha... how long did you look?
- Feeling angry
- Feeling stupid
