No idea if these methods will work for you, but they are pretty much the staples of my process. Oh, also, I try to take classes that sound super interesting, and if they turn out to be boring, I try to focus on some aspect of it that is the least boring, or try to find some way to relate it to something personally, so I have some sort of association that allows me to recall the information later. =]
Oh, also, if you do decide to study, don't study for more than 30 minutes at a time... and take at least 10 minute breaks between the 30 minute sessions... it works well for homework too!
i look at the pictures first
I'll read as much as I can before I get bored, which in this thread was maybe the first three posts, then decide whether the subject is interesting enough to keep reading.
I am similar to this when it comes to studying or anything that isn't for pure enjoyment, like reading YA fiction... some of that stuff in intense!
As far as forum-type discussion goes, I usually scan for the thread of the conversation (hence the name :P) and also I want to make sure I have something new to add. The discussion can build better - and depending on the subject matter, maybe the participants can reach an answer to their question or solve a problem.
When I am reading for selfish pleasure, I get really lost in a story. My first instinct is to jump around and scan the pages. I've ruined a good plot twist or character death (read: Dumbledore) by doing this. I also read pretty fast, so this is just magnified.
Now, if I'm in the middle of an intense scene and I think something big might happen, I cover up the opposite page with my hand(s), and force myself to read it straight through.
Occasionally, I'll listen to some kind of instrumental music during my study time. I also give myself breaks where my mind is allowed to wander.
Depends. If I see a pattern and know what people are likely saying, I'll skip it or skim it. If it's new information to me, I read every word and think hard to make sure I understand it perfectly.
