...people are more likely to self-sabotage their speed reading skills because they don’t believe that it’s possible to actually read much faster than their current reading speed.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 15, 2013
eReflect recently interviewed Martin Sam, managing director of the Shilin institute, a Cape Town based organization that helps people improve their speed reading skills. The Shillin Institute came into life when Dmitry Shilin decided to create a speed reading course based on his own skills and knowledge of the science of speed reading. eReflect discussed the multifaceted benefits of speed reading with Martin Sam, who quickly made it clear that speed reading grants people the opportunity to stay ahead of the pack no matter their career or niche.
The interview also pointed out that people are more likely to self-sabotage their speed reading skills because they don’t believe that it’s possible to actually read much faster than their current reading speed. Habitual cognitive processes are activated when a learner tries for the first time to speed read, preventing the reader from applying speed reading techniques; as a result, people believe that their reading speed is never going to improve. However, dedication and the correct stimuli can allow people to read up to 50 times faster than their current rate, according to Sam.
Another piece of advice Sam shared with the 7 Speed Reading blog readers is that instead of trying to simply read material faster, to really improve reading speed the person has to first focus on their brain. A person's brain needs to become agile, flexible and strong enough to process and absorb new information at a faster pace. This is where the Shilling Speed Reading method stands out. Instead of focusing on how to eliminate sub-vocalization it works on training the brain on how to instantly read whole chunks of text. Conventional reading methods that follow the vertical or horizontal eye movement can impede reading and information processing and recalling, Sam noted. The integrated approach used by the Shilin Institute is capable of making any reader a truly efficient speed reader.
The last piece of advice offered in the interview is that although younger students find it easier to adopt better speed reading habits, older people can actually improve their reading speed and get rid of their deep-seated bad reading habits. eReflect thanks Martin Sam for his time, and encourages readers to look into the Shilin method of speed reading.
