    Question Dyslexia & N types?

    Wondering if dyslexia is related to being high in N type. I'm a strong N type & used to have severe dyslexia since birth. I still have difficulties reading long sentences. My theory is that N factor & may be P factor contributes to visual thinking which may cause dyslexia. Anybody, any thoughts?

    I have a form of it myself, only with processing numbers. Both my sisters have to greater or lesser extent. I'm eNFJ, and my sisters are ISTJ and ENFP.

    I won't say I have dyslexia but I think way way way faster then I can write/type, and that causes oddities similar to dyslexia.

    I have extremely mild dyslexia, that really doesn't affect me much anymore, but it made it very difficult when I was learning to read, and still affects writing and learning foreign languages. My friend, however, is severely dyslexic, and I think that she is an ISTP (very very introverted).

    Not especially in my own experience with dyslexic patients, being a speech pathologist myself. Not type related, at all. I see dyslexic kids and adults every day 50% of the day, 4 days a week and I spend my time when I am with them to analyse their cognitive processes and their psychology. I think, I would have seen. Maybe a little more "SJ" than anything in visual dyslexia for example (mostly perfectionnist kids, drawn to details and who not see the big picture).
    I correct dyslexic kids, being N and P my self! I always loved linguistic, words, spelling, reading, writing, as far as I can remember.

    Please, don't think every thing is type related. There's not just one type of glasses to see the whole world...

    Beside, this is totally anti-logical! If it contributes to visual thinking, this also means, you are able to imagine visually the words, to find out creative ways to learn spelling with your own visual inner processes and to think visually over the words, notice their differences and how to write them down. So, why would it bring dyslexia? If you are strong visually, it's one of your core processes. And dyslexia is not only a visual issue. They are many type of different dyslexia!
    I even think, NFP, NFJ, ENT are especially good verbally to formulate their thoughts and even write them down.

    Falcarius tends to agree with Cality that there is most probably no link between dyslexia and MBTI types.

    For what it's worth, Falcarius most probably has dysgraphia or some sort of learning disability as he explained here.

    I could be just talking crap here, but you may be onto something.

    A while ago, I read studies that show that we do not read ALL the letters of a word. We read maybe two or three and the mind fills the rest in. So it could be that a strong N might see multiple possibilities or something (does that sound like crap?!)

    For example, I always have a problem with quiet, quite, quit. Weird, huh?

    Also have problems with numbers.

    Or words like discreet, discrete...

    But I would not call that dyslexia. So I am not entirely sure.

    On the other hand, this ability allows me to play a wicked game of scrabble.
