Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I viewed all the sections in the FAQ of Stack Overflow but have still not been awarded the "Analytical" badge.

Is it that I need to see all the FAQs in Meta, Programmers and other Stack Exchange sites?

P.S: This is not a duplicate question, all the questions related to this I have seen, however I did not find a satisfying answer.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You need to read all the sections, not just view. – Mat Mar 12 '13 at 6:22
And some sections are collapsed. You have to click on show more to read whole section. – hims056 Mar 12 '13 at 6:24

First, you should read all the sections - expand them all and scroll down.
Second, badges are not awarded immediately - there's a script that is run from time to time. So even if you have read the entire FAQ, you will have to wait until the badge is awarded - this may take a few minutes to a few hours.
