    I like challenging activities(Osu SC2 DevilDaggers SkullGirls) but I did a wpm (word per minute) reading test first and got 241 with 91% accuracy. Average for computer was something like 200wpm 60% accuracy, but I have alot of practice being meticulous, even if sometimes I misphrase things. My comprehension was high, probably due to reading when I was younger and excessive forum discussion time. So far with speed reading though I end up understanding what I read a second or so after I read it. Then sometimes I accidentally miss a word, but my peripheral vision deciphers what is is now when that happens. I also have enough time to daydream but daydreaming is more movement related sorta like you are producing the movie, instead of watching a movie, so its somewhat more real time, and I might not care to imagine some parts like meticulous details, or read some parts if its going very off on a tangent I don't particularly care about, like a more detailed explanation into what I already understood the first time. The imagination can be inconsistent, but I tend to dwell on the parts I enjoy more, rather than say imagining every lip movement. Also I view it as related to this study http://www.rochester.edu/news/show.php?id=3679I am somewhat busy tho so it might not be the precise article I wanted to share which was comparing it to turn based games which only improve accuracy not accuracy and speed. So I view it like playing speed chess compared to playing chess with no time limits. This means my processing for imagination will be just as accurate but get faster, thus I can cram more imagination per second. Also I didn't think reading would improve decision-making but I was wrong, because I need to choose which parts to imagine and for how long, so its probably the best thing I can do, if it were not for the dry eyes issue.

    Isn't it hard to speed read though? Are you able to take in all the information you receive from reading every single word so fast?
