    Those numbers would put you at the top end of very advanced speed readers basically making you one of the fastest readers on the planet.

    Forgive me my doubt.

    Thank you.

    I could recommend books that share the technique if you would like.

    This is an irrelevant measure without knowing the purpose of the reading activity. I could read and comment on a student paper in 8 minutes. It usually takes me 25+ mins though, because of my purpose and goals.

    You read 192 words per minute. That makes you 23% slower than the national average.

    I knew I'd be crap at it. Yet more evidence suggesting I have dyslexia.

    Actually, I see words as pictures, which is a type of dyslexia. And, I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I read somewhere that it is also a rare characteristic of Autism, but I'm not sure.

    No need I'm happy with:

    You read 1,360 words per minute.

    That makes you 444% faster than the national average.

    Good, because I don't feel like walking all the way upstairs.

    I read very slow but my comprehension can be remarkable. Maybe some twisted form of dyslexia. To tell you the truth I wish I could have both worlds.

    Yeah I see things a little like this too but not quite in the autism sense. I have attempted learning 3 languages with entirely different written scripts because I enjoy that aspect so much. Unfortunately, my bad memory and crappy speaking/listening abilities get in the way.

    Yeah I'm totally like this too.

    Actually I read somewhere that some people with dyslexia (ironically, when I first typed that word I misspelled it "dysexlia" ) can have high comprehension rates if they have excellent higher-order language skills. This is because, even though they mentally skip all over the page, they can piece together all the random bits of information together like a puzzle.

    I had a quick look for articles on it. Here's a good one:

    We frequently see children who consistently show good comprehension reading lengthy passages or even long books, yet who significantly under-perform or even fail written tests of reading comprehension because they have difficulty reading short test questions or multiple-choice answers.

    This seemingly paradoxical difficulty reading short passages can be better understood by considering the nature of the reading difficulties children with stealth dyslexia usually have. As mentioned earlier, these children typically show difficulties with word-by-word reading, skipping words occasionally and making word substitutions. When reading longer passages, they can often use their excellent higher-order language skills to fill in or correct errors in word reading, drawing on the redundancy and contextual cues that are usually available in longer passages. However, short passages contain fewer contextual cues. They have less redundant content, and they often have more condensed syntax, providing fewer means of correcting individual word errors. Therefore, the likelihood of errors increases as passages decrease in length.

    This is interesting and seems to make sense. This slower reading seems to produce short "thought pit stops" between words and sentences; where some distinct form of cognition occurs or as the article infers some analysis puzzle pieces are graphed.
