What is Mind Mapping ?
Mind mapping is similar to brainstorming but more visual and less linear. Create mind maps by:
- Starting with a word or image central to your topic.
- Placing it in the middle of a big sheet of paper and drawing a line radiating out from it to a major subdivision of the topic.
- Circling that subdivision, and drawing a line radiating out from it to a more specific subdivision.
- Continue the process until you run out of ideas.
Mind mapping is especially useful to those who find it easier to assimilate and understand schematic information than linear or sentence-based reasoning.
