Self-made millionaires are four times more likely to suffer from dyslexia than the rest of the population, a study has revealed.Psychologists found that 40 per cent of the businessmen and women they studied were diagnosed with the learning difficulty.The report by Tulip Financial Research showed that they performed badly at school and still do poorly in aptitude tests.Experts believe that dyslexics, who tend not to be good at details, learn to excel by grasping the bigger picture and producing original ideas. They may also be more motivated because of the social exclusion many feel.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...iches.html

I'm dyslexic. I've defied the odds to become a cardiologist. Just waiting for the first million. If inflation kicks off again I might have a chance.
Welcome I’m sure you can do it
A great post.
My father was slightly dyslexic with a moderate stammer. I am not dyslexic but have suffered from a moderate to severe stammer all my life. Both my children are quite strongly dyslexic.
My stammer has motivated me to strive for achievement and now at nearly 68 I have never been more motivated and ambitious in all my life.
My ambition is to achieve the greatest level of financial success, wealth generation and freedom that I can before I die.
I am not motivated by holidays, fast cars or the luxury lifestyle but merely the personal fulfillment which manifests by coming to terms with and defeating a disability.
Great post DL. As always, a great read when you comment, I especially like your investment feeds.
Thank you the old stock market is on a downer at present so it’s time to go back and push back into it again
Great read. Do you think that the reason so many of the self made millionaires are more likely to be dyslexic, is because they find regular work similar to school in the sense it is very standardized and tends not to let them use their best skills where as self work does?

I have to be honest I don’t know
I think our brains are wired up different and maybe when you lose something a gift follows
it could also be that we are put down by folk as being thick and then our response is I will show you I am not thick
I know I like the best things in life and I see that as reward and in a way it shows others that your successful
the odd thing is I fly and I have never had an issue with passing exams
but if you ask me to spell it causes issues
that’s my thoughts for what it’s worth
Thank you very much for taking the time out to think about my question and reply to me. It is nice to see someone else's viewpoints and learn from them. Also I think the stigma of learning disabilities is very bad (as you said people put you down) and seeing posts like this help change people's viewpoints.
I assume that also means that 60% are not?
Yes logic would come to that conclusion
if it was 100% everyone would wish to be dislexic lol
