Last week Noah and I were talking about dreams.
I dream a lot and I remember a lot of my dreams. I know the circumstances, interactions etc in my dreams, but I don't have a lot of visuals in my dreams to go with my thoughts. I know that may not make any sense, but I am not sure how else to explain it.
Anyway, Noah asked me if when I read if I visualize what I am reading as a movie. I said, "are you kidding me? No! How would I ever get through a book? I could tell you how a book described something, but I wouldn't really see it in my head." By the way, I am a very fast reader.
Noah laughed. "When I read," he said, "it is as if the whole thing is a movie in my head. I can see it all." By the way, Noah reads slowly.
We asked some friends the other night about it. My friend Becki does not "see" everything when she is reading (like me) and she is also a very fast reader. Matt does "see" everything (like Noah) and he is very slow.
So, my question is: do you "see" a movie in your head as you read? Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?
PLEASE COMMENT! I REALLY WANT TO KNOW!
