Brain Exercise & Creativity Test-Can you read me

Help Us Build a Better World For The Next Generation.

These exercises are more challenging than the word exercises posted on my other site; they still requires good cognitive function, patience, a little strategy and discipline to complete.

The degree of difficulty is due to the fact that one of the words is a new word, that was added in 2017.

This might be one of the hardest exercises in the word games.

There are 25 random letters posted.

The letters represent a four- word sentence.

The first challenge is to create as many words as possible using the 25 letters posted.

The experience will test your spelling and vocabulary.

The second challenge is to identify the four- word sentence.

You must use all the letters posted.

Clue-like the weather.

  1. Wow, this is totally challenging. I can find more than 25 random simple words. I found a simple four word sentence, I think – “August is hot month”. It is very interesting. I’ll will share this with my daughter to see if she is willing to take on the challenge. Thank you for putting the challenge together.

    1. Thanks for trying; let me know how your daughter manages the exercise. one of the rules states that your sentence must use all the 25 letters; you only used 16 letters; good try.

  2. I have had a hard time after seeing this brain exercise!😐 It’s obeah because I can’t put it away.As you now, I am deep into weather here, and find a lot of interesting information.But the new word puzzles me…are you sure its new? This year?

    1. I just posted a clue on FB where I shared the Exercise. the new word was coined in 1960 by an editor from Vogue; if no one gets it I will post a second clue. What do you know about obeah? i am surprise to see you use that word.

      1. Obeah; I like to study afro-caribbean diaspora. Whether we like it or not, it is a part of our past. Turmoiled past. I want to set it free, to wash away stereotyped descriptions of it, maybe put it into a more explaining and a more modern context. I am also interested in my northern ancient mythology. And others.But you probably know. Its been like this all my life. I have a hang up, like best to look back.Not all the past is written books yet.

        1. The new word was coined in 1960 by Diana Vreeland a Vogue editor.That should be a great clue. Thanks for trying. Good luck.

  4. What a challenge! I’ve been trying this for the past fifteen minutes and all I could get was clue #1, a three-word article, and a six-letter word of Latin origin. However, I’m still willing to take on the challenge and I hope to mail you before the offer ends in about 10 days. Wish me luck!

  5. This is really challenging for me!

    I’m a big fan of word puzzles, but I must say, this has thrown me. I bet my Dad would love it as he’s a massive crossword fan.

    I really enjoyed the puzzle, I’ve spent 30 minutes on it and can’t get the 4 word sentence! Does it have anything to do with a season or a particular month?

    1. Thanks for your comments, did you read the clues? , you should at least got one word, read the clues again and give it another try. when you suspect a word remove the letters  of that word and the exercise becomes easier.

      I look forward to hearing from you again.

  6. This post is both interesting and challenging at the same time and that is what i like the most about it. The post is unlike any other blog post that I have read and therefore I consider it to be a unique concept. There are a few punctuation mistakes within the post so you may want to go back and edit that. Overall the post is engaging and easy to read and understand.

    1. Thanks for your comments; did you try to find the sentence; I am hoping to see that in the comments. it should be easier now that i have posted clues; give a friend the challenge.Best wishes.

  7. I guess my brain is a bit lacking because I certainly can’t figure out a 4 word phrase using all 25 letters.

    I did come up with close to 100 individual words, though. Does that count for anything?

    Once you gave the third clue, I knew the “new” word, youthquake! I remember reading an article from the 60’s in which Diane Vreeland used it to describe radical changes in music and fashion by young people in Britain. And, the word stuck in my mind!

    More brain teasers, please!

    1. Thanks Marty for trying, eliminate the letters for youthquake from the 25 letters and the rest is easy sailing, here is one for you only-like the weather -6 letters.Let me know if you find it.Good Luck.

      1. Hi Courtney,

        I thought a lot about your brain teaser, “like the weather”, and “6 letters” – and the only thing I can think of is “cloudy.”

        The only other thought I had was “Ramsey” because “Like The Weather” is actually a song but, it is sung by Mary Ramsey, the lead singer for the group, 10,000 Maniacs.

        So, am I close to the answer?

        Marty

        1. Thanks for your patience and effort, Think of a word that is associated with the behaviour of the weather and you have the first word. Good luck.Read my post on aboutdiabetesnstrokes.com- brain exercise-can you read me- exposed.Good luck.

  8. I love brain challenges 🙂 And usually, I can’t stop till I have solved the mystery. So I will try this now and see if anything good comes up. The only downside is that I am not a native English speaker so this is doubly challenging for me. But I will try and do my best – at the end, I have nothing to lose but only to gain.

    1. Thanks for your comments; I plan to announce the winner  of the heart tomorrow but I will not publish the sentence because there are people still struggling with it. I will probably give one more clue.

  9. I can see this challenge has ended, but it looks fun. I wondered if anyone actually got the answer and one of your hearts. I am afraid, I am not very good at this stuff – but I did give it a go. Great challenge thanks for putting it up!

    1. Yes there was a winner from Miami; I was sure that with the clues more people would find the sentence; did you get the new word; all you had to do is google it and you would have found the answer; look out for february; it is a little easier.Thanks for trying.

  10. I really enjoy brain exercises and I know they really help prevent memory loss. I’m definitely trying this exercise out. Glad you have the clues and hopefully I’ll have the answer to you soon. I’ll get my friend into figuring this out too. I love challenges like this to keep my brain active. Thanks.

    Have you tried Brain It On?

    1. Thanks for your comments; do let me know when you find the answer. I am posting a new one today and there are 2 of my hand carved hearts at stake.Best wishes.

  11. Courtney, how have you came up with this game? It is just like a boggle game.

    Your content is all about a mind game and for me it is difficult but since each game has instructions maybe correct answers can be drawn.

    I hope people will enjoy playing in your website.

    1. Thanks for your comments; I am hoping people will email me privately for clues and send suggested words to which I will respond yes or no; but I am struggling with the idea of posting answers, It takes the fun away; Please send me your attempts.

  12. Oh my gosh, I am not good with word games in general – so this problem ignites an inner fear! I can’t even imagine how you’d approach something like this in the first place.. What’s your recommendation on improving? At least to the point of being able to solve something like this haha. Thanks!

    Reply

    1. Sorry but this is a challenging exercise, see how many words you can create and get back to me; I will tell you if any of your words are part of the sentence; don’t give up, please try.Good luck.

  13. Hi there,
    For a long time, I have not read a great article like this one. I found it challenging for my brain but very useful and educative to me.
    I know I will be thinking about or the days to come.
    Maybe I will ask my son to read it with me again.

    Reply

    1. Thank you for the comments, get your son and you both try the exercise together and send me your answer; if you need help dont be afraid to ask; best wishes

  14. I like your post focusing on brain exercise, so many of us exercises regular to keep our bodies in good condition, but many of us forget about exercising our mind.

    Your word game post is very interesting and challenging your readers to solve the puzzle makes your website a fun and unique site from many others.

    I was wondering will you be posting the correct answer and the winner for your readers to know, I think that would be a nice gesture on your part for your readers?

    1. Thanks for the comments,and the suggestion i will post the answer at the end of the month and share it on FB also, thenI will change the sentence in the exercise. You are right we forget the brain, -use it or lose it- #084: That heart was won , Look for the posting of the answer.

  15. Hi Courtney, very informative article and so interesting:) My brain still kind of smokes a little bit, but it was really fun to do the challenge and especially helpful for me since I’m a German who still has to add words to his vocabulary. You got to post another one. 🙂 I look forward to your next article and I’m definitely going to be back again.

    1. Thanks for accepting the challenge did you get the sentence? There are currently 94 exercises on the website, going up to 100; you can also 100 more on aboutdiabetesnstrokes.com. Good luck.Enjoy.

  16. Nope, I’m stumped by this. My mind just goes blank with all the letters thrown at me, and I’m surprised that Ha even got ‘August is hot month’ out!

    Much as I love brain puzzles, I’m horrible at word ones. I seem to fare batter with puzzles like Sudoku or mazes. I guess my spatial and mathematical intelligence must be slightly better than linguistic ones.

    1. Sorry to hear that; There are some puzzles to do with numbers, try one and see, there are easier ones on –
