Nothing wrong with one's brain. It's that in words such as "finished" the "f" has a normal pronunciation, but in "of" it is pronounced as if it is spelt "ov" so we don't register it as an "f" in this case -- we are counting the number of times we read something that registers as having an "f" sound. Interesting all the same.
