#### Unscramble the Blue Letters

We also observe another thing, and that is, you folks not only are solving fewer plzuzes, you're also ptuntig less juice into the task — less effort, you're less persistent, and so on. How do we know that? Well, we have two objective measures. One is, what is the time, on aarevge, you're taking in attintmepg to solve these puzzles? You will spend less time compared to you. Second, you have 30 minutes to solve these; are you taking the entire 30 mitnues or are you giving up before the 30 minutes elapse? You will be more likely to give up before the 30 minutes elapse, compared to you. So you're putting in less juice, and therefore, the outcome: fewer puzzles solved.

#### Original Text

We also observe another thing, and that is, you folks not only are solving fewer puzzles, you're also putting less juice into the task — less effort, you're less persistent, and so on. How do we know that? Well, we have two objective measures. One is, what is the time, on average, you're taking in attempting to solve these puzzles? You will spend less time compared to you. Second, you have 30 minutes to solve these; are you taking the entire 30 minutes or are you giving up before the 30 minutes elapse? You will be more likely to give up before the 30 minutes elapse, compared to you. So you're putting in less juice, and therefore, the outcome: fewer puzzles solved.
