Introducing Mind Mapping
In This Chapter :
What characterises a Mind Map
How to create your first Mind Map
What you can use Mind Maps for
Would you like to know how to create a Mind Map? Before we get started, I first want to give you an idea of what a Mind Map actually is and how many different opportunities there are for using Mind Mapping. I can assure you: you’ll soon find this technique absolutely indispensable.
Presenting Information Visually
If you flip through the many Mind Maps depicted in this book you’ll notice that they look more like pictures than text. Mind Maps are a bit like a tree looked at from above, with its branches radiating out in all directions from the trunk. You’ll also notice that Mind Maps do contain actual words but that these are always reduced to mere keywords.
A Mind Map, for example the Mind Map specimen in this chapter, can contain the same information as the continuous text in the chapter itself. The main difference is that in a Mind Map content is not presented in lines and rows as in continuous text but is actually visualised. In addition to keywords, visualisation involves a sequence of graphic elements such as:
✓ Colours ✓ Symbols ✓ Pictures ✓ Spatial arrangement of branches
The second main difference is that a Mind Map is an individual, personalised map, which reveals the thoughts of its creator. This means that Mind Maps are not automatically self-explanatory, since no two people would create exactly the same thought structure. Nevertheless, Mind Maps can also be understood by other people; for instance, when you’ve read the content of the book or already know something about the topic.
You can use the specimen Mind Maps in each chapter in a number of ways, for example, by taking a quick look at them just before reading a chapter without understanding everything in them or after reading a chapter as a quick recap of its content. This is also helpful if you pick up the book again after a break and want to recall the material.
