When children are first learning how to write their names, some parents are shocked to see their children writing a perfect version of their name, only in mirror reflection. This may seem mind-boggling, but in order to perceive and file visual information from different perspectives, the brain seems to keep a mirror reflection of what it sees.
Mirror reversals are commonly seen in young children, but they tend to correct by the ages of 7 or 8 years. They may persist in children or adults with dyslexia, though, resulting in frustratingly 'immature'-appearing work written by hand.
The figure below shows the 'mirror' pathway when normal test subjects were told to imagine letters or numbers presented in mirror reflection.
If this is your plight, you should also be aware that that mirror reversals can also accompany advanced capacity for spatial rotation. You may be quicker to visualize spatially rotated objects. The link below is to a research study that found that dyslexic subjects were quicker at processing feasibility of impossible illusions. This might be why gifted dyslexics can be found in many fields like CAD, engineering, architecture, and spatial mathematics.
