My research topic is all about picture thinkers. I am interested in this topic because I want to know how picture thinkers get their ideas. It relates to Temple Grandin’s chapter “From Margins to the Mainstream” in The Autistic Brain because Temple Grandin saw something on tv and it showed a good vivid memory and she explain the memory she had in that moment. In my research, I learned that picture thinkers get their ideas from memories and that their visual/spatial work in the brain helps them remember.
Picture thinkers get their ideas from memories. In spatial thinking, they can picture the locations of objects, their shapes, their relations to each other and the paths they take as they move. In visual thinking, is a way to organize your thoughts and improve your ability to think and communicate. It’s a great way to convey complex or potentially confusing information. Also is the phenomenon of thinking through visual processing. This type of thinking has been described as seeing words as a series of pictures. I think this because it is sometimes useful, important, or just all out fun to know something better so in the future you can see the right path.
Different and Uncommon are two things are unalike and divergent things. Different is not the same as another or each other; unlike in nature, form, or quality. Uncommon is out out of the ordinary or unusual. When determining how to get what you want from people, you have to appeal to their way of thinking. This relates to my research of picture thinking because picture thinkers are different and uncommon than most kids who are just normal thinkers. I think this because it is very complex and It’s like saying or doing a divine move.
On this quote by Mick Ebeling ¨The reality, I believe, is that all change starts small. The big picture is just too unwieldy, too incomprehensible and and seemingly immovable. But give us something individual, quantifiable and personalizable, and suddenly, our perspective shifts to the one¨. I think this means that thinking represents two different ways of looking at world kind of like Convergent and Divergent thinking. Divergent thinking is a thought process or method used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possible solutions while Convergent thinking is the opposite, basically convergent thinking means to correct something that doesn´t need creativity.
I think that picture thinkers will always have good ideas but not better. Just in a way of getting to share and pair to get great ideas.
Lateral thinking, it means the solving of problems by an indirect and creative approach, typically through viewing the problem in a new and unusual light. I think this means that you can find other solutions to an answer that has different ways of answer in a way of different alternatives of creativity with unusual imagination. Unusual alternatives and workable ideas is another of solving an answer which is the solution. I think that means that you can think outside the box to get other ideas. This relates to my research of picture thinking because it is different from visual/spatial because all you have to do is to think outside the box from the uncommon light. It is like saying going outside the law to find justice so that it is served.
On different ideas and how they can relate is that same difference so I think is means that when you are sifting through ideas in your head, one idea will grab your attention. Then another might come in and borrow the thinking in the spotlight of your head. Uncommon ideas, and how they work is a little out of the ordinary. You are basically saying that your thinking is unusually abnormally atypical that the idea you just thought of is so strangely curious and outstandingly extraordinary. This relates to my research because something so differently uncommon can be a crazy good idea that it can surpass the solution/answer you been looking for in beyond.
The big picture is something we as humans forget and that is true. It is true because you focus so hard on one thing inside that big picture that we forgot what other categories are in the big picture. The way to remember that big picture is something already in front of you and that is the clues and to a quote by Chuck Palahniuck he states “The trick to forgetting that big picture is to look at everything close-up.” I think this because we are just looking at pixels in the picture. This relates to my research because in autistic person has a good photographic memory but sometimes they can really see what’s inside or what’s not, it is like a daydream.
The thing that is in a picture thinkers brain/mind is a phenomenon, a mind that has a habit, that nature is revolutionary that it doesn’t need determination. I think this because picture thinkers have a pattern and how there is miracles in the brain to the point where it is it’s own engineer. This relates to my research because picture thinkers will always have great ideas and no matter what the reason is it can be a better with other people ideas.
