Hand Positions In Speed Reading

May 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 208

One of the most fascinating things about watching someone speed reading is the pace at which their hand glosses above the material they are reading. It moves so effortlessly and for the common reader, it appears as though it's proceeding much too quick for the individual to be absorbing any part of the phrases.

If you've always learn at a normal pace, it might seem impossible to consider that you could learn several times faster. It might also appear unbelievable that you can adopt the principles behind speed reading without too much effort.

Speed reading is dependent on the principle that your thoughts absorbs the material that you study at a faster rate than someone who reads at a basic speed. Normally we take our time reading each sheet of a book, attempting to master the message of each word and how that word relates to not only the sentence it is in, but the paragraph as well.

For someone who speed reads, they are prepared to glance at the words and instead of concentrating on each and every single word; they see the phrases as blocks. They observe the block of words and the meaning is absorbed.

You'll find diverse strategies to speed reading, but the standard strategy remains common. That is, your eyes must quickly scan the phrases of the page. To complete this you can use diverse procedures.

The most basic of these actions is to use your hand or your finger. This is typically what we associate with speed readers. Their hand moves remarkably effortlessly over the sheet; skimming line by line until they turn the next page to begin the method all over again. They need to do this to ensure that their eyes can adhere to the phrases. When you are studying at a rapid pace, it is easy for your eyes to lose track of where you are on the page. By tracing an invisible line underneath the text, their eyes continue to be fully focused.

A different approach that works the same way is to use a card or a straight edge, such as ruler. This keeps the reader's eyes following the text. They aren't tempted to skip ahead and miss words. Their concentration is devoted on exactly what they are reading, and as they work through the page, the card or straight edge moves with them.

Concentration is one of the most significant factors in reading in general. It is much more essential when an individual is acquiring their speed reading talents. Anyone can implement this rule into their studying. Utilizing either their finger or a card the eyes will follow the phrases of the text at a much quicker pace.

The next time you are studying give this a attempt and see the difference it can make. You'll find yourself more targeted on what you are studying and you won't be tempted to skip forward and miss text that are crucial to comprehension. Small tips like this could make a significant improvement in your reading speed.
