Ok, I must have misunderstood the degree of your problem.
My 'jumbling' of words has always been anxiety or doubt related. When a belief is fixed, for instance, someone tells you you're dyslexic, which in
itself is a fixed criticism of your reading ability, you have this assumption pounded into your mind, and it 'fixes' it there, of a sort.
Perhaps anxiety is only partly the issue. The other half is active imagination. If you can imagine, or assist yourself to read at a faster level, for
instance, by looking at a series of words, or a line, and intellectualize them in the same way as you would do a word, then you will bring your mind
to a higher level of reading efficiency. You probably have experience with this.
I was ALWAYS a poor reader, but at 17-18, I began reading more, and now, at 26, my reading comprehension and efficiency is manifold times better than
it was when I was in high school. It got to this level through this imaginative type thinking; training myself to read multiple words at once instead
of one word at a time, which is typical of an 8th graders reading comprehension level (according to another website I was reading).
If only our schools knew, or rather, cared to teach their students properly, reading comprehension wouldn't be as dismally low as 250 words per
But then again, the type of society we have requires an uneducated 'worker class' that accedes to popular opinion, opinion that is hatched by the
political-intellectual elite, who, for the sake of efficiency, need a population that is just smart enough to conduct machinery and drive cars, but
not to worry over deeper philosophical or sociological questions, and thus, politics.
So, while I just censured the elite for not having the 'wit' to teach our students properly, they do so purposefully. They want only the cream of
the crop to break through, and even those who break through will become conditioned and formed by university-level indoctrination.
It really does help to not enter the system, to have learning disabilities early on........You become a free thinker..
