A new study from Kwik Speed Reading says that if you’re reading at a speed that makes you feel like you’re “reading slow,” you’re likely reading at the wrong speed.
That’s according to a study that was conducted by Kwik and its co-founder, Dr. Steven Schmitz, a clinical professor of psychology and neuroscience at Harvard Medical School.
The study, published this week in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, found that reading speed is related to the level of empathy a person feels for other people.
It’s unclear how reading speed affects people’s emotional reactions.
But, according to Schmit, reading speed has been linked to a variety of positive emotions, such as happiness and optimism.
“The idea is that the faster you read, the more empathy you’ll have for others,” Schmit said in an interview with Fox News.
“And you’ll be more empathetic because you’re able to feel what others are feeling,” he added.
In a nutshell, if you have the ability to read faster, you’ll feel more connected with others.
That’s why, if reading speed makes you happy, it will likely make you happier.
“We think that a person with an emotional connection with others, especially if they are a reader, has a higher chance of reading faster,” Schmitt said.
In addition to reading speed and empathy, the study also looked at reading comprehension.
Reading comprehension is the ability of someone to read a word or phrase quickly and efficiently.
The authors found that people who read faster were more likely to know what they were reading.
But even those with a high reading comprehension score did not know exactly what they read.
The most powerful predictor of reading speed was how much reading comprehension was impaired.
That is, how much of the word was read.
But the authors say that reading comprehension also matters.
If a person does not read all the words they are reading, they are likely not reading the most important words in the book.
“If you have reading comprehension deficits, it’s not necessarily because you can’t read fast enough,” Sch, said.
“Reading speed is a combination of both reading comprehension and reading speed.
It’s really, really important.”
