I’m looking for the files in my directory that aren’t viewable (eg the files with g-r). So here’s what I did:
-perm -g-r find
It displays all of the files to me? So here’s what I did:
-perm -g+r find
And it only showed me the files that were viewable. -perm -g-r appears to work for all files. CentOS 5.5 is the operating system I’m running. Is there something I’m missing? It doesn’t appear that -perm -g-r is of any benefit.

You could use this to locate files that you are unable to read.
find . ! -readable

Because you were running it as root, you were able to see all files when you ran the following command.
find . -perm -g-r
Try running the command as a regular user.
