Interestingly, when I researched pictures for Hypoactivity, every single one (except the cat) was for hypoactive sexual desire disorder – I want to re-assure you that the way we use it in the world of Dyslexia, it is not related to any sexual disorder. We see both hyper- and hypoactivity as a product of disorientation, which changes the perception of time.
What happens biochemically when a person is hypoactive? Less dopamine production slows down the inner clock, which results in the outer world as appearing too fast.
In the Davis world (see ‘the Gift of Dyslexia’) we correct the imbalance by correcting the orientation and thereby addressing the root issue.
