The literature studies from the first ages to adult the intuitions that a person has about the coin toss. These works conclude that when students are instructed to write a sequence or analyze a given sequence that could be random, they consider that there should be an almost equal number of faces and crosses. Who among us would not write a sequence this way? When they have to manifest themselves with respect to other characteristics such as streaks, they think that in short streak lengths and therefore in a wide number of streaks. Do we know what are the minimum and maximum or at least more usual value of the number of streaks and the lengths of streaks? This work deepens these questions from different perspectives
