Learn speed reading and free up time
There is so much to learn and so little time: Keeping up with news, technology developments, psychology, life in general. We are increasingly an information culture and being able to rapidly sift for quality information has never been more vital. Yet many of us read much slower than we need to.
Speed reading is all about maximizing a major tool of your personal development and ramping up your learning potential, comprehension and recall. We've probably all thought at one time or another: 'If only I could get though this material in half or even quarter of the time!'
The average reader will be able to read around 200 words per minute with a comprehension rate of around 60% whereas a top speed reader can read 1,000 words plus per minute with comprehension rates of 85%.
Speed reading for success
Speed reading is really a group of skills that enhance the rate at which we absorb words without losing comprehension. Many speed reading courses claim to be able to teach people to read between 1,000 and 2,000 words a minute without losing comprehension but research shows that comprehension tends to go down to 70% or lower at speeds much above 1,000 words a minute (1) But we have found it is possible to crank up your reading speed and still maintain understanding.
The techniques of speed reading and photoreading
Speed reading is a composite of skills which include learning how to 'see' the words rather than inwardly vocalize them. Sounding each word in your head as you read slows you down. This speed reading session will focus on encouraging a state of 'photoreading'. This involves enlarging the peripheral vision and engaging in a trance like state as you whiz through the words.
This instant comprehension is akin to the amazing natural skill that some savants demonstrate whereby a random number of, say, scattered beads can instantly be read to an exact or very close number. This dramatically shows the brains' potential to instantly see and comprehend large numbers of data. When you tap into this potential when speed reading then you'll literally have more processing power.
Advantages of speed reading
Imagine being able to speed read (and speed re-read) academic material, emails, technical missives, newspapers, novels and magazines. You'll have to practice your speed reading in reality in conjunction with repeated listening to this relaxing session. Hypnosis appeals to the same part of the brain that is used by top speed readers and therefore is the ideal tool to optimize your speed reading.
