I'm curious if it's typical for IEIs to be slow readers. I myself read quite slowly and I recently found out that the other IEI I'm close with reads slowly too.
I myself read so slowly that I sometimes can't keep up with movie subtitles. And if I force myself to keep up, my eye concentrate on the subtitles and I don't look at the movie picture any more.
Sometimes I wish I could read quicker and I've been considering following some methodology for learning to read quickly, but in the end I don't feel right about it. I actually enjoy reading slowy and pronouncing the words in my mind. Also I like that I take the text in quite well this way - when studying in school and university I never had to read things more than once. I feel that if I read faster I'd miss something and I don't like that.
Recently when I reading speed came up in a conversation, the other IEI told a similar story, even before I told mine. So I was wondering if it's typical.
If I think about it in terms of functions, I'd say it could be due to the combination of leading Ni (wanting to understand everything) and polr Te (having a hard time judging what would be useful for some purpose).
Can any of the (apparently many) other IEIs here share their thoughts on the subject?
Thoughts on my theory of how the functions explain it are welcome as well.
