It's a lot harder to count backwards from Z to A than it is to count backwards from 26 to 1, amirite?

How many of you actually tried it

Try spelling from 1 to 26.

I disagree. I can Z to A much faster than I can 26 to 1.

But are you speaking in just your case, or did you intend for it to be more generalized?

How much of the time is spent trying to pronounce the bigger numbers, though? Not everyone counts without evoking the sound of a number and when they evoke the sound of the numbers they are counting, it naturally takes a bit longer than when you "just think" them.

No kidding… 26 unique symbols versus 10 unique symbols that follow a pattern

Probably because we spend a lot of time counting up and down through the digits around 0-30 for daily activities such as measuring and counting change or playing around as children, hide and go seek etc. Count down from 10 to launch the toy rocket etc. I've never practiced my abcs backwards in my life. I'm sure it would be easy to though if it was a more common occurrence.
