Thread: Reading speeds

    Default Reading speeds

    So, Ns generally read slower than Ss, right?

    Or how does that work out when it comes to the 16 types?

    Care to posit a general "fastest reade / slowest reader" differntiation?

    Lol where did you get that Ns read slower than S? Why? The fastest readers I know are ENTjs/ENTps/ESTps btw

    The only thing I can think about now is that probably E read faster on average than I.

    Default Nice picture

    I like th picture of Scrummy. Wht type is this man on the picture? Looking at him feels good.

    As regards to reading or understanding - generaly I am hard -headed, very slow in understanding of abstract concepts, very slow reader but I do agree when i don't have much time I tend just to skip through info to see if I can extract the meaning quickly.

    I'm not sure what type he is (it's Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka), but in the book, the character seemed ENFj.

    It depends on what I am reading and what style/time frame, etc. On average, though, I would say that I am slightly fast but I have seen people read much faster than I do. I am not sure if they are actually reading, though.

    Im not sure where this is going

    I read really fast. This has helped when I need to finish 200 pages in a book for school in less than an hour. I only do that when I'm trying really hard, though.

    However, it doesn't seem as if there's a direct correlation with type. I know some people from my own type who are really fast readers, and some others who suck at reading-related things in general.

    i have a very hedonist, idiotic SF friend who can read a story or watch a movie and can remember every detail of the entire movie, but unfortunately he is too stupid to absorb anything from it other than, "omg, i hated that!" or "NOT FUNNY." I've never seen someone so goalless and irresponsible in my life.

    I can see how the more Extraverted and Judging the better someone can focus on reading. However, I've noticed that Introverted types are generally smoother when reading aloud. Kind of counter-intuitive.
