A simple definition of dyslexic could be a one who would be considered slow, but slow doesn't suggest stupid or ignorant. Dyslexia simply recognizes that the processing speed of the brain isn't identical because of the brain's ability to grasp information. An "intelligence quotient" is a mean of the function of the brain, so while some areas of the dyslexic brain are weak--the overall function of the identical brain can still be up to or greater than gifted. Often times, people think that dyslexia could be a lame excuse to elucidate problems that everybody else supposedly has and since of that, are often wrongly seen as a victim mentality instead of the acceptance of obstacles to beat. Common signs of a dyslexic person are slow reading, messy handwriting, stammering, and difficulty taking verbal instructions. As a result, dyslexics are often easily frustrated by criticism and seen as having a short-fuse, which is why many dyslexics learn to require the initiative, self-educate, deconstruct the norms, and figure things out on their own but doing so can still be isolating because the dyslexic has got to separate from group-think and also the way everyone else is doing things. Dyslexia isn't the identical as attention deficit disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder because dyslexia isn't about hyperactive or obsessive behavior--it's about processing speed. In some ways, dyslexic is an oxymoron for, "backward genius."
