How do you read?

Discussion in 'General' started by cannabis1990, Aug 12, 2011.

  1. When I read, I read in words, I turn what I read into words in my head and sometimes move my lips or tongue. Is this normal? how do you read?

  2. i dont know. its what i do. as im typing this right now im speaking every word in my head to myself.
  3. yep, most people read the full words. Check this out:

    "Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe."

    I can pretty much read that as fast as normal text.
  4. I have an inner dialogue. I don't move my lips or mouth the words
  5. ^^ yeah i paid Morgan Freeman to do my inner dialogue for me!

  6. thought about this as I was making my post.
  7. You guys don't form the ideas in your head from the words you read?

    I think you guys are missing the point of reading then

  8. I think you forgot everyone is different.

    veronica vaughn is so fine
  10. Explain? I just assumed everyone read the words, possibly had an inner dialogue, and then created ideas by putting the words together in their mind.

    It seems like a crucial last step is being forgotten
  11. It always makes me feel smart when I read that as fast as I would normally read and im stoned. I'm like.. WOAH MY BRAIN... IS PUTTING TOGETHER THE WHOLE WORD IN ONE.

    or maybe thats what im thinking right now cause im stoned rofl :smoke:

    But I later realize that almost everybody can do it

  12. Probably because it's so automatic people don't think about it?

    I dunno, I have the hardest time reading books. But I can read the same amount of words on the internet no problem. :confused_2:
  13. When i read books with stories i create the ideas in my head.

    if its like gc postings i just read the words and keep it like that.

    unless its one those 'real life stories' postings
  14. when reading books i personally like to read two pages at once with my eyes in different directions
  15. I just kinda breeze over each sentence picking out the important words...kinda using a little bit of peripheral vision to tie it together....reading has always been based on memorization for me. I see familiar shapes(words) and I just breeze over them...instant recognition of each individual reading of words, or having to sound stuff out as I go. Reading has always felt really second nature to me though...they said I had a college reading level in 7th grade..
  16. Whats that? :laughing: Haha but I honestly don't read, unless its bills or this site.
  17. I read really weird I think. I do say the words to myself but just in my head you dont see my lips or mouth moving. What I do that I think is weird Is how I speed read. I dont sound things out or anything like that. I have memorized what many words look like and associate that with the sound they make when spoke, if that makes sense. Anyways I can read fast as hell and even get tongue tied from it If I read out loud.

    Right after I posted what I posted I read yours. Im pretty sure we read the same way.
  18. You got ripped off, he does it for me for free.:D

    I guess I don't read any different than most people. No moving lips or whispered words, I just use my mind-voice and it changes depending on what character is speaking. I usually base the characters appearances as well as the scenery from familiar places/people. I've always been good at it though.

    Even in my senior year of highschool, when the "cool" kids read in class, it was painful to listen to. They read like second-graders. I also noticed how sometimes they had more trouble with smaller words than bigger ones. Anyone else notice that?

    All in all, reading is good for your mind and spirit. It exercises the imagination very effectively. My grandma read a lot and my grandpa didn't. He always talked slower and forgot what he was saying a lot (he wasn't senile, mind you) but my grandma stayed sharp as a tack right till the end.
  19. yeh :)

    I have alot of trouble reading aloud...I always get ahead of myself and start skipping eyes and mind want to skip forward faster then I can talk :p Kinda the same thing happens when I write too...I think it's the fact that I hardly ever read aloud or write stuff down in my mind can't 'downshift' as easily as it used to.
  20. I never read aloud and I don't have that problem. I remember alot of my peers did that in grade school... I think you guys try to read slightly too 'fast' thus you guys mix your words up and get confused? I don't know.. lol
