Do you use visual thought processing?
Do you require visual representation in order to learn new material or problem solve? Do you have a favorite process or method?
I find I need to draw things out on a white board, and add post-it notes to it. Sometimes I take a photo of it with my phone, and turn it into a visio drawing. The walls of my cube contain all sorts of visio drawings, org charts of information, collections of color themed post-it notes. I have postcards tacked to the walls that have information that I frequently use written on the back.
Do you have a favorite softward or mapping notation that you use to create visual representations?
