SKILLS DEVELOPED: Abstract and critical thinking, memory, processing speed, visual-perceptual, and accuracy and attention-to-detail skills
Inverted reading or reading text in different orientations is a learned skill. According to a 2011study published in the “Psychonomic Bulletin and Review,” reading text upside down significantly improves memory. People who have a lot of practice recognizing words or numbers can normally read in reverse direction with ease. They are said to be very smart individuals since reading backwards is a complex skill and not a common ability.
