To All My Intelligent Readers: This One’s for You!

I am sharing this only with my smart friends. I could not figure it out.  My first thought was wrong and I had to look at the answer posted below.
See if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common.

1. Banana 2. Dresser 3. Grammar 4. Potato 5. Revive 6. Uneven 7. Assess
                          Are you peeking or have you already given up?
                           Give it another try…. Look at each word carefully. You’ll kick yourself when you discover the answer. This is so cool….. No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters….
                            Let me know if you found the answer – I didn’t!  I had to peek.  The answer is below!
                              Answer:
In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word. Did you figure it out? No? Then send this to more people and stump them as well. Then, you’ll feel better too.
