    • Use both sides of your brain
    • Logical or vertical thinkingsince Aristotle (384-322 BC)
    • ‘Since Aristotle, logicalthinking has been exalted asthe one effictive way in whichto use the mind . . . ’
    • ‘. . . Yet the very elusivenessof new ideas indicates thatthey not necessarily comeabout as a result of logicalthought processes.’
    • Opposite thinking sinceEdward de Bono (1967)

    • Out of the box thinking
    • Brain patterns for recall andcreative thinking
    • ‘[. . .] it has been popularlythought that man’s mindworked in a linear or list-likemanner.’
    • ‘This linear emphasis over-flowed into normal writing ornote-taking procedures.Virtually everyone is trainedin school to take notes insentences or vertical listst.’
    • ‘Recent evidence shows thebrain to be far more multi-dimensional and patternmaking [ . . .].’
    • ‘If the brain is to relate toinformation most efficientlythe information must bestructured in such way as to“slot in” as easily as possible.’
    • ‘It follows that if the brainworks primarly with key-concept in an interlinked &integrated way, [. . .]’
    • Copied brain patterns
    • Exercises: my brainpatterns
    • The presented brainpatternshave a number ofadvantages over the linearform of note taking.
    • ⁄. The centre or main idea ismore clearly defined.
    • ¤. The relative importanceof each idea is clearlyindicated. More importantideas will be nearer thecentre and less importantideas will be near the edge.
    • ‹. The links between the keyconcepts will be immediatelyrecognizable because of theirproximity & connection.
    • ›. As a result of the above,recall and review will beboth more effective andmore rapid.
    • ∞. The nature of thestructure allows for the easyaddition of new informationwithout messy scratching orsqueezing in, etcetera.
    • 6. Each pattern made willlook and be different fromeach other pattern. This willaid recall.
    • ‡. In the more creative areasof note making [. . .], theopen-ended nature of thepattern will enable the brainto make new connectionsfar more readily.
    • Lost brainpatterns: mindmaps
    • Stop. Now first some practise.
    • To be continued . . .
