5 IDEAS

Active And Passive Reading

Passive reading is when we read for pleasure and get lost in the book, enjoying the complete experience. This is applied in fictional works. Acquiring knowledge demands a different way to read: Active reading.

Great books require time and attention, needing to be chewed and digested properly for an in-depth understanding.

 ... is the ability to regulate and alter responses in order to avoid undesirable behaviors, increase desirable ones, and achieve long-term goals.

Our self-esteem and human misjudgment

Our self-esteem is vital for personal well-being and happiness. People with higher self-esteem are more satisfied with their lives.

But sometimes, life doesn't give us any reasons for self-love. We get fired, or a relationship ends. Under the influence of bias from self-interest, we may change the facts so that they become acceptable. In some cases, this can grow harmful.

These are usually long-winded, boring documents that are purely written for academic rather than entertainment value. These are usually found in textbooks, case studies, business reports, financial analysis reports, and many more.

  1. Find a good place to read - your reading environment has a huge impact on how much text you cover and how much information you retain. It's best to have a well-lit, quiet, and comfortable reading environment
  2. SQ3R Reading method - stands for survey, question, read, review, and recite
  3. Learn to Speed Read
  4. Read Backwards - not lietrally, but it can be easier for you to locate the important topics when you read the conclusion or the context summary before reading the rest of the chapter
