This may seem crazy but actually; how do you write your ‘X’? Just think about it for a moment. This simple question was posted on Saturday by a Horsham, Pennsylvania resident; the woman had seen the post previously on her Facebook feeds and decided to tweet about it.


Although the question seems simple, it is mind-boggling and will set your mind working the moment you see it. It's caused so much sensation, that it even made the news!


The picture going around shows a graphic illustration of different ways to draw an ‘X’ with the colored line labeled 1, being the first line to be drawn and the black marked 2, the second. In total, there are eight different ‘X's’ to choose.

Trust Twitter to jump on a trend readily; the question became a big hit, with different comments and people going gaga over the answers.


A particular tweet from Steven Fry simply said:

“I'm a 7.”

There was a hilarious tweet response from Brian Rizzo, he wrote:

“In South Brazil, we do the X like this,” and posted a picture of a delicious burger, LOL!


Another woman tweeted:

“I write my X with 4, do I need to get help???”

The woman who posted the tweet is more interested in collecting an analyzed data from the sea of responses and also using a person’s location to determine habits they form over time. She got to work and came up with the conclusion that most people from the US use 7 and eight as their method of drawing their X, while the UK's use 5 and 6.


If people do not see two different colors on the same dress, then they hear two different things which, was the case of the Yanny or Laurel sound clip that went viral.

These sort of questions are prevalent in today's social media world, and while the reasons behind bringing these up vary; some are just for fun while others are used to gain strategic insight into pressing issues, more like an internet questionnaire.
