No, it isn't. That is where yo go south in your thinking.<quoted text>
"Storing information" is processing the information. You are just trying to be funny now, no one can be this stupid.
Reading is a motor skill. It just translates symbols into words. It takes "thinking" to turn those words into concepts or knowledge. Some things can be processed on the fly, and others take some consideration. Depends on the complexity of the info.
You have sure taken aptitude and other tests in school. Maybe you recall the sections called "reading and comprehension"? Yours probably had something like a 45% percentile next to it, just to jog your memory.
Note the two different words? Are you capable of grasping the significance of that extra word comprehension?
Think about it.
