Q&A: Muting your inner voice during speedreading
I recently received the following questions from a reader, regarding this article I wrote for Lifehack:
Thank you for your article in Lifehack concerning this subject.. You mentioned engaging the memory. What is your suggestion for silencing that inner voice while reading so the memory can be fully engaged? I am having difficulty doing this. I still hear that inside reading voice
The same person then contacted me on Twitter, and you can find the Storify of my explanation below. Another method would be to speedread while you mutter “tumtumtumtumtum” repeatedly, to teach yourself to silence your inner reading voice.
