In the educational system there is the concept of “useful difficulty”, which is used to complicate the performance of ordinary tasks. This forces the student to abandon stereotyped thinking, act creatively and better absorb new information. A font has recently been created that is in itself “a useful embarrassment” and helps train pupils' memory.
Authors from the RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, called their brainchild “Sans Forgetica” This is the first font in the world that allows you to quickly and accurately recall what you read. It's all about the combination of empty places in writing letters – it is chosen in such a way as not to tire the brain, but to stimulate it.
If the text is written in the same font, it merges into a single “array”, and it is difficult for the brain to isolate the meaning from the letters. If the fonts are different, attention is spent on figuring out between them and catching the general meaning. And Sans Forgetica has become a kind of golden mean – it is quite picky, but at the same time makes the brain connect to capture the meaning. The effectiveness of the approach has been tested and proven on hundreds of university freshmen.
The Sans Forgetica font is distributed freely and is available here.js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/ru_RU/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
