Donald Trump has
little or nothing to do with (limited) intelligence or “letter reversal.” Rather
it is the consequence of individuals having difficulty reading and/or
understanding letter based words.
Based upon body
language, behavior, and videos showing Trump in situations where he is expected
to be able to read, it is overwhelmingly obvious that Donald Trump has
dyslexia. His abusive, narcissistic behavior is NOT so much a
collection of character flaws, but rather his attempt to hide his
illiteracy by being excessively aggressive and/or abusive.
That abusive, lying behavior is NOT so much an effect OF the
dyslexia but from the effect of Trump’s abusive/neglected childhood and his
NOT realizing the source of his literacy difficulties.
visual tests which indicate dyslexia are also exhibited in the (small)
sample of dedicated Trump supporters. Rather than being a “populist”
movement, the primary source of their “belief” in Trump and their
demonstrated gullibility is likely their dyslexia.

Dyslexia is a difficulty associated
with the reduction of reading comprehension and speed, despite those
individuals otherwise having normal intelligence. It is primarily a
visual problem rather than a cerebral problem. The universality of
the higher red photoreceptor ratio as to chromatic dyslexia indicates that
the cerebral problems result from the disparate color perception problem.
Types of visual
dyslexia - the eyes are not able to work in unison to simultaneously
see the same image.
Chromatic dyslexia - a higher
percentage of red photoreceptors increases the stability of distant
images but decreases the stability of close image. The

of the purported “letter reversal” associated with dyslexia is in actuality
a matter of “bad guessing” of the letters and words due to an unstable

little or nothing to do with intelligence or “letter reversal.” Rather it is the consequence
of individuals having difficulty reading and understanding letter-based words. The
politically correct term “slow readers” has been created to describe
individuals with dyslexia. However, it was recently discovered that
most “slow readers” have a higher percentage of red (L) to green (M)
Chromatic dyslexia and Graphic-Based
Vision is associated with the retina having a 75% red and 20%
green and 5% blue percentage of photoreceptors. Letter-Based
Vision has a 50% red and 45% green and 5% blue
percentage of photoreceptors
the rapid changing of the shape of the biological lens to adjust the focal
length of an image so that it is “focused” on the retina. That focal length is regulated by the
relative focal depth of the colors red and green relative to the
retina. “Slow readers” tend to have 75% red (L) and 20%
green (M) photoreceptors while non-slow readers have 50% red
(L) and 45% green (M) photoreceptors. A higher percentage of red
(75%) facilitates a more stable distance image with red focused on the back
of the retina and green in front of the retina (Graphic-Based Vision),
while a more-balanced lower percentage of red (50%) facilitates green (45%)
being focused on the retina and red behind the retina for a more stable
near image (Letter-based Vision). Individuals with that higher
percentage of red (75%) tend to have an unstable near-image and symptoms of
what we call dyslexia, as well as symptoms of migraines and epilepsy due to
the added near-image visual stress.
There also seems to be a genetic factor as
to the ratio of red/green photoreceptors.
Dyslexia is so rampant (90%) among Native
Americans that the term “dyslexia” is viewed as a racial epithet. The
term "Graphic-Based Vision" is also a more explanatory
description of the visual mechanisms of color perception than the term
”dyslexic vision.” It also allows inclusion of a broader range of
symptoms such as migraines and/or epilepsy.
About 80% of the European gene pool has predominantly “Letter-based
Vision” which could correlate to the use of letter-based words from a greater
near image visual stability. About 80% of the Chinese gene pool has Graphic-Based Vision and may correlate
to the development of pictographic based words which are more stable at a
further distance. About 90% of Native Americans have Graphic-Based Vision and are
survivors of the Mongolian gene pool which crossed over the Bering Straight
some 13,000 years ago. The 90% Graphic-Based Vision of Native
Americans likely correlates to 80% of Hispanic Americans having Graphic-Based
Vision due to racial mingling. About 80% of Native Africans have
Graphic-Based Vision which likely correlates to the 60% of
African-Americans having Graphic-Based Vision due to (frequently forced) racial
Because 21st century
technology is letter-based, people with dyslexia have an impediment as to
developing those competitive literacy skills. Graphic-Based
Vision may also explain why some African-American and Hispanic students
struggle with "letter-based" education. Learning to read
(reading “White”) frequently requires learning to read words as
pictographs, such as in the Orton-Gillingham technique. Chromatically
modulated (tinted) lenses could potentially eliminate those dyslexia,
migraine, and epilepsy symptoms.
However, there are psychological
and physiological factors associated with near-image visual stress.
with chromatic dyslexia tend to overcompensate due to that unstable
near-vision image. As they walk down a hallway corridor their heads
tend to bob from side-to-side (known as the "Steve Jobs walk").
They tend to have a preference for authoritarianism due to overcompensation
to that visual instability (known as the "Steve Jobs style of
management"). They also tend to have difficulty with written academics
(such as "Steve Jobs the college dropout"), and a propensity for
drug such as marijuana and alcohol which reduce the visual stress from the
difficulty of focusing on near-images (which partly is why Jobs went to India where weed is legal and widely
What is stunning is
that almost all of the Donald Trump supporters have symptoms of chromatic
The Screening Test
for Chromatic Dyslexia
To screen for the
chromatic dyslexia concept we developed a 10 second color contrast test
which uses a segmented uniformly spinning ring called a Dyop, short
for dynamic optotype. The photoreceptors of the eye function much like pixels
in an electronic camera to create vision and to bring an image into
focus. When the spinning gaps and segments of a Dyop get too small, their strobic stimulus area is
too small for the photoreceptor pixel effect to be detected by the eye. The
smallest Dyop diameter (arc width) detected as spinning creates an acuity and refraction endpoint.
The spinning Green-on-White and spinning Blue-on-Black Dyops
of the test have identical angular diameters. By moving away
from the screen, or clicking the screen Down Arrow, those spinning Dyops
appear to become smaller. Eventually ONLY ONE of the spinning Dyops
can be detected as spinning. Further reduction of the apparent Dyop
diameters will have the spinning by both Dyops no longer visible.
chromatic dyslexia, migraines, and/or epilepsy are indicated when you can ONLY
detect as spinning the smaller Blue-on-Black Dyop and NOT the identical diameter spinning
Green-on-White Dyop. The test seems to have a 95% correlation to
personal or family history symptoms of chromatic dyslexia, migraines,
When using the
Dyop color screening test prior to the November 2016 Presidential Election,
I anecdotally noticed that some enthusiastic Trump supporters also had chromatic dyslexia.
To attempt a sample
validation of “political-visual” correlation, I went to the Food Court of a
Nearby Mall to use the color screening test on my iPhone. The
color/contrast screening test works the same on an iPhone as on a computer. When the identical diameter spinning
Green and Blue Dyops became sufficiently smaller, eventually only
one if them will be able to be detected as spinning.
At a nearby Mall Food Court I asked a
small survey of 30 "registered voters" for their
Dyop color preference as the rings got smaller. The two
questions I asked were,
1.) "As the Dyops
get smaller by moving away from the screen, when you can detect ONLY ONE of
the two Dyops spinning, is it the Green-on-White or the
2.) “If you were to
vote today, would you vote for Clinton
In the initial
survey, 17 of the subjects’ preferentially only saw the Blue Dyop spinning
and 13 subjects preferentially only saw the Green Dyop spinning. Of the 30 subjects, 11 of them
were Trump supporters and 19 of them were Clinton supporters. There were
approximately six individuals who were also approached but refused to
participate in the survey.
ALL of the 11 Trump supporters preferentially saw
the smaller spinning Blue. NONE of the 11
Trump supporters preferentially saw the smaller identical-diameter spinning
Green. Of the 19 Clinton supporters,
six of them preferentially saw the spinning Blue and 13 of them preferentially saw the
spinning Green. Again, NONE of
the individuals preferentially seeing the spinning Green
were Trump supporters, indicating that ALL of the 11 Trump
supporters had chromatic dyslexia.
I have since
surveyed an additional 10 subjects. Four of the additional subjects
were Trump supporters and six were Clinton supporters. Of the Trump supporters,
two preferentially saw the smaller spinning Blue Dyop; however, two of them
preferentially saw the smaller spinning Green Dyop. Two of the
additional Clinton supporters preferentially
saw the spinning Blue and four of the additional Clinton supporters preferentially saw the
Initial color test responses:
However, there is
anther factor as to the correlation of dyslexia and Trump support. That factor “explains” why some of the
tested dyslexic individuals do NOT
like (i.e., despise) Trump. I
personally know some of the dedicated Trump supporters who tested positive for
dyslexia symptoms and ALL of them
have an abusive/neglected/authoritarian childhood. The Trump “despisers” I personally know
do NOT have those negative
childhood experiences. See below for a discussion of the
psychology of abusive relationships.
This is a very
limited test with an insufficient number of subjects, but it is something
which needs to be objectively validated with a much larger subject group.
Does this mean
overwhelming preference for detecting the spinning Blue, indicating
chromatic dyslexia, correlate to the higher percentage of Trump
supporters who possibly have dyslexia? Could that overwhelming
preference for seeing the spinning Blue correlate to the percentage
of Trump supporters who believe what they hear rather than what
they read? It may is possible that the two Green/Trump preference
individuals have strabismus dyslexia rather than chromatic dyslexia.
Maybe not; but it IS very scary.
This could also
not only explain the dominance of the Graphic-Based
Vision non-college graduates (who were less motivated to go to college
due to reading difficulties) in the ranks of the Trump supporters, as well
as their gullibility as to Trump's dementia and lies. Very few
of the Letter-Based Vision people were Trump supporters.
You will want to run your own evaluation. Give/Take the test yourself and with your
One of the
psychological effects of dyslexia is overcompensation
in dealing with that unstable close image. Typical of that
overcompensation is when a person with chromatic dyslexia walks down
a hallway or corridor they will have their head bobbing from side-to-side
due to that visual instability (the "Steve Jobs walk"). A person without
chromatic dyslexia will walk down the same corridor with their head moving
in a straight line.
overcompensation seems to also lead to a preference for authoritarian and
hierarchical relationships. That could translate into a preference
for someone projecting confidence rather than competence, and a belief in
what they hear rather than what they read. Reading letter-based words
is a collaborative process where the combination of the letters determines
the word meaning, and the combination of words is what determines the
concept. Words and letters by themselves frequently have no
meaning. The meaning comes from the context and the relationship with
associated words. NON-dyslexics have mastered the collaborative
tend to be authoritarian and hierarchical as to their convictions. It
indicates a preference of Confidence over Competence. Clinton supporters
tend to be collaborative and more concerned with literacy and logic.
It indicates a preference of Competence over Confidence. However, unlike dyslexics who are NOT Trumps supporters, dyslexic
Trump supporter typically have a childhood history of a neglect (such as Steve Jobs) or abuse (such as Donald Trump). See the Follow-up below.
Cultures in Asia, Africa, and the Mid-east tend to be authoritarian,
and tend to have 80% of their populations having Graphic-Based Vision.
However, there is also a 2500 year-old historic precedent as to reading and
authoritarian political convictions. Red-haired Socrates despised
reading and writing. What we know about Socrates is only from the
writings of his heretic pupil Plato. Because of his efforts in
attempting to lead a violent revolution to replace Athenian democracy with
an oligarchy, Socrates was sentenced to death. Socrates was also the first
"certified dyslexic" since his despising reading and writing and
hierarchal social attitude was likely due to dyslexia.
Matthew MacWilliams discovered that Trump support seem to have a high preference for
The correlation of
authoritarianism to dyslexia symptoms is possibly from the
overcompensation to an unstable near vision image. That behavior was
typified by the head-bobbing motion of the "Steve Jobs"
and his style of management prior to getting fired by Apple. It also
is typified by Jobs' academic failures at Reed College
and his forays into drugs, since marijuana acts as a muscle relaxant to
reduce the near-Dyop visual stress of Graphic-Based Vision.
The most recent (and stunning) observation, however,
of Trump's dyslexia was watching the videotape (literally)
of Trump's inauguration. Trump and
Pence walked down the corridor towards the inauguration podium
with their heads bobbing from side-to-side typical of
someone with dyslexia. They were followed by Obama and
Biden walking down the corridor with their heads and
eyes moving in a straight line.
Michelle Obama's and
Jill Biden's heads also both moved in a straight line.
Melania's head moved in a straight line, probably indicating her
training as a model, or that she does not have dyslexia.
However, Eric and Barron Trump both
demonstrated head bobbing as they walked, while Ivanka
and Donald Junior did not.
I am still trying
to understand why about a third of the people who HAVE Graphic-Based
Vision are NOT Trump supporters,
and are terrified of him. I think it has to do with group ethics (or
"ethics per se") or parental training to be nice to others rather
There may be an explanation
as to the childhood of the Trump supporters. Apparently dyslexics who support Trump seem to be individuals
who were either abused or neglected in
HOWEVER, I am NOT very optimistic as
to the outcome of our society WHEN Trump is removed from
office. There are too many Trump
supporters who continue to be oblivious to the lies, the immorality, the
corruption, and the bullying to think that they will recognize that they have
What I am expecting is a massive, Trump
supporting, self-appointed militia will riot similar to the riots in India when
a beloved guru was convicted of rape:
Fortunately our “well-regulated militia” (the US
Military, Police, and National Guard) will be able to deal with the
self-appointed “people” who think they have the “right to bear arms” and
fail to realize that their obsession is actually that of a self-appointed
It will not be pleasant.
I am in the process of trying to have my correlation academically
validated. Any assistance as to additional validation, OR even valid
academic disproval, would be greatly appreciated.
