Well, this is one of the few problems I never openly admitted on the internet.
I had issues with reading ever since I was young. I was ALWAYS put in the lowest level reading group in Elementary school. Whenever we took standardized tests on reading comprehension (such as reading a story and answering questions), I would do VERY poorly on them where it actually took me a few tries to get passed one. I can remember getting a 20% on my Julius Caesar test (part of the blame is that I barely read the book). That is why I took the fewest reading classes I could in high school, taking public speaking and composition classes instead (which I did very well at being one of the top students). Despite having such horrible reading, my math scores would be through the roof. I never cared to be put in the most advanced math classes (I preferred learning everything I could), but I'd have by far the top grades in my classes on anything related to math or logic (like programming). On Chemistry/Physics test, I'd get a perfect on the math part while struggling with short answer/questions over reading.
Some may wonder why I bring this up now? I could seriously have a MUCH better education/work situation if I could actually read well. While yeah I had a GPA of 3.59 in college, but part of that was because I completed all assignments, stayed on task a lot (did not mess around), got help from Professors when needed, and certain classes I was so good at it help. But my GPA struggled to get higher because some classes I had average test scores due to struggling with reading. If it was memorizing vocabulary words, I'd get a perfect on it. While I may have exceptional skills for a job, but when I have to read something just to learn.....that's where I struggle in the workplace because I struggle with reading comprehension. I also struggle to remember stuff people tell me verbally unless I write every single thing down (and many times I have to ask for them to repeat it). Yet I have no problems memorizing license plate numbers or clothing people wore each day of the week.
I could also say I have some communication issues with people, where I can stutter, be hard to understand, etc. unless I act like I'm speaking to an audience. That's something which is a little more fixable (outside of anxiety issues I have).
The reading thing just bothers me so much because if I was better at reading, I'd succeed so much more in life right now with a better job, higher education, and be one of the most gifted people in this world, yet I suck at reading. Honestly, one reason I do more dub than sub for anime is because my reading isn't exactly great. As much as I enjoy storylines in anime/JRPGs/etc. (even ones with text only), I still have issues remembering a lot due to poor reading. It's why I could never become a game reviewer when I tried because I kept stressing over remembering what all happened all throughout the story (where I'd remember some, but not all).
I sort of feel like an odd one because most I talk to on the internet seem extremely fluent in reading and will always be much smarter than I ever will be because of that. My below average level is one of the reasons I'm bummed out all the time.
