Typos are one of the most commonly made mistakes in the world of writing. As irritating as they seem, they can definitely tick someone off and create a general assumption about how poor someone’s writing or proofreading skills are. However, not everyone has the ability to find typos in just one go, especially when there is too much text in something.
While reading a newspaper, you might never come across typos. This is primarily because the human mind is too focused on the story, they just go with the flow. However, this one person has a gifted talent (which one may call OCD) as he can see typos as soon as he reads something.
