The letters b, p, d, and q are confused because the brain needs to learn to identify the letter name to the letter sound. If you hold a hat upright, then turn it 90 degrees, then turn it again 90 degrees, and then again, same shape remains but it turned in different directions. But with b, p, d, and q, the brain doesn’t know necessarily if you are seeing the image upside down or not because the letter shapes could be just turned, and turned, and turned, and turned.
