It can be considered a form of laziness.  It's not so much a slower reading
speed, as less ability to glean information from text in the first place -
they don't "read", or (to be specific) gain information from text, in quite
the way that you (and I) do.

Is it due to my “learning style” that I have a preference for text?

That is an accurate enough way of putting it.

Because it's so common, that your intuition may confuse "the large number
of people that you experience a difference with" (your intuition is not
noticing those who, like you, prefer text since there is no problem there)
with "literally everyone".
