    Re: Do you think in words or pictures?

    I absolutely think in pictures. Of course, sometimes I switch to words, especially when reviewing conversations or having discussions/debates/practice converstions in my head.

    It was a big shock to me in the mid-90s when I read of this. I had never thought about how I thought. I assumed we all thought the same way. Wrong.

    When I realized I think in pictures (like Temple Grandin) even though I'm outgoing and friendly, and occasionally think linearly -- it was exciting. I started asking everyone I know (still often do). It was so weird to discover that some people think IN WORDS or THOUGHTS! I had spent a lot of time as a paralegal and had gone to court, and finally realized that the good lawyers think in thoughts! Amazing.

    Well, it makes me a better writer because I see the pictures and describe them.

    I"m recently aware that, if I can't PICTURE it, I won't understand and won't learn whatever the topic. OTOH, I don't learn from watching videos either, I like to read the words. And, I watch television with Closed Captions on too (apparently I have trouble with auditory processing -- even though I'm a performer and singer -- soloist/ classical training). And, although "we" can have reading problems, I started reading at 3 and have always been a fast and thorough reader.

    Another topic for you all to read about is "gifted visual spatial" thinking. Google that term. Also, "I think in pictures You think in words" These are good topics to research for you AND for your children.

    Thanks!
