“The Upside of Dyslexia”

When I was a kid, I went to school with a girl with dyslexia. She tried to explain it to me once, but I wasn’t really able to figure it out. After reading this article, it makes a lot more sense.

It also makes sense of the condition from an evolutionary perspective, for me — the ability to take in an entire scene at once would be a very useful trait for our ancestors, to the point that it’s still very common, despite the problems that it causes in today’s world.
