    In general, What do you do when you're waiting for something and how long does it take you to do it? Me, I like to watch videos or read, but reading is sometimes better ^^ Both is good for knowledge, and sometimes I believe that I've learned all there is to know about a certain topic but I'm...

    Reading everything in a thread

    When I join an online community I mostly tend to lurk, and this one is no exception. Something I have noticed is that if I start reading a thread I read every single post in it, even if there have been hundreds. Especially if I intend to post something in it, as I would feel uncomfortable...

    Re-reading the same things daily

    Lately, I have come across a few short articles I like and now I have been re-reading the same articles every night. This has only just started. Do you think it's a nervous habit? I've been pretty stressed recently.

    Let's say you're reading a story, and something happens to one of the characters. I'll present three versions of this scenerio, and possible responses you might have. 1. The situation in the story is something you yourself have never experienced before (for example, the character's beloved dog...

    If you can read braille, you can read it without looking, and yet sighted people rarely learn or use it. How come?

    A question regarding sleep and reading.

    So, I've noticed that whenever I don't sleep enough, my brain auto corrects whatever I'm reading into nonsense. This usually occurs when I've only had three hours or less (but sometimes slightly more than that). Please note, I'm not recommending this at all. Sleep is important. However, I would...

    Reading things you don't understand

    Am I the only one who likes reading text I don't understand? I don't mean simply difficult text that is technical or above my reading level. I mean text in languages I don't know and alphabets I can barely decipher. In fact, when I start to understand what I'm reading, it starts getting less...

    Reading makes my head spin When I try to read or listen to an audiobook just give me a headache it’s not because I can’t read the words or understand them. Once I read the sentence my head starts to feel dizzy and it starts to pound a little bit. My mind does not wander but I still can’t get...

    Asperger's and reading speed

    Is there any particular sort of connection between asperger's and reading speed? Tell me how you do on this reading speed test. Me personally, I can breeze through 3 or 4 sentences at what I would guess to be around 700 wpm. But I always end up getting "stuck" on a word or phrase and it...
