Every country puts phrases together differently . My wife is from mexico and asked me if we need "litter cat" when she goes shopping , I would say cat litter . Spanish dialects are different too so some of the lingo I picked up from south americans doesnt exist in mexico .

Have noticed this as well. After some time of being alive our brains are hardcoded, so if you are used to put the word that describes the object "litter" in front of the attribute "cat", you have a hard time to change that.

The core of English is Low-German, and in German the attribute is connected to the main noun, so "cat litter" would be called "Katzenstreu", meaning cat's litter. "Katzen" is an old genitive, which has been dropped in English.

The English inherited this from the Anglo-Saxon immigrants that flooded Britain in the 5th and 6th century. They came from the German regions Anglia and Saxony (and others) and took their language with them.

Spanish or French as romanic languages put the attribute behind the noun, so this Germanic invasion has confused them ever since.

After all your wife wanted to get litter, or did she look for a new cat?

There is much on the internet about learning English as a
second language (seriously):

Google

====================================================================

An individual tries to speak English without an accent (not seriously):

YouTube - French Learning English, verry funny ;D

====================================================================

In time you should be able to read English with the letters of the words scrambled.


Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

According to a research at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be at the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself but the word as a whole.

Absolutely correct. Our brain is trained for pattern recognition. We will recognize any pattern that we are familiar with. So go and learn Chinese, don't think about those pictogramms, just recognize them, it must be simple.

Be careful with that pattern recognition mechanism. Our brain makes up incomplete information. So if you look at a chart, the brain will add some "missing" elements and you will get a biased picture of what is going on. The bias will depend on simple things, such as the margin that you have left above and below the price action. If there is no margin, your brain will suggest a countertrade.

The pattern recognition is an old skill that we have inherited from apes. Chimps seem to be better at short term memorization of pattern than humans.

You vs. The Chimp

Can you beat this chimp? Chimps use a larger part of the brain for short term pattern recognition, as it is crucial for their survival. We humans have probably converted part of it to develop language capabilities. It is not astonishing that the original pattern recognition skills have partly be maintained.

That video of the chimp seems real. I'm surprised.

I don't know if the job even exists anymore. Around
1985 I knew someone that worked at a postal center.
His job was to read the zip code on an envelope and
type it. I believe he had less than a second to read and
type the 5 digits, then the machine placed another
envelope in front of him to do.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I think your dog is willing to beat the chimp from post #13, if you promise to take off his deer antler prior to X-mas.
