Man, that sounds awful! I can see why an extreme excess of Word Clearing would drive you up a wall. After while you probably had "charge" on the process itself, regardless of what the words were.

Agreed. While there are some good things in study tech (most are also common sense) there are generalities with it.
Find me one person that can read out loud without some sort of stop, stagger, mispronunciation etc. Give me a Fing break. And everyone of those is an MU...right!
MU phenomenon also made me wonder. If a person isn't interested in what they are reading it means they have an MU....that means everything you read you have to be interested in.......lol. You can't possibly be not interested eh.

I remembered some more of the Scientology study tech, which I disagreed with:
5. If your needle doesn't float, then you have an MU. Never mind what you think.
6. In Method 7 word clearing, it's ok to learn just one definition. In Method 9 word clearing, if you just learn one definition, you are a squirrel suppressive.
7. (This is verbal tech, but I know it happened.) Now that [some genius] provided the definition you need in the back of the book, you don't need a "wog dictionary". So, it's ok to get a non-LRH opinion on the meaning of a word, if Bridge Publications produces it, but you're a squirrel if you get an opinion in some other way.

Oh yeah, Wordclearing! What a subject! I actually never cleared all the definition, but only read the one that applied. Making sentences? not me! I remembered getting my M2 on the E-meter. Wow! One paragraph with about 20 words, took me 50 hours to get through.... Apparently I was reading on the meter on every word, even the ones I had cleared before on my M2. Great fun...

Study tech can be good if used well and correctly I think _ I was a supervisor and staff training officer for a long time. I have seen however word clearing almost used as punishment and forcing people to clear up words they already knew and making them to reread stuffs 20-30 times - yes that can drive people crazy.
