Usually many people like to say mind mapping. Whether it is reading, studying or working, when it comes to mind mapping, it is as if you are an insider, bathed in the eyes of everyone. But in fact, there are not many people who can accurately grasp the core of the mind map - most people use a dragon-killing knife into a pig-killing knife, and make it mysterious.
Most of the articles about mind maps that are generally seen on the Internet now express the views that have been rotten on the street:
Some people say that the mind map provides a "ten sure" memory method, and every time it is used, the basic memory skills of the brain can be improved once - the theory of memory tools;
Some people say that a mind map is actually an outline, which can combine and sort out information recorded from the outside (lectures, books, magazines and media) and information generated from the inside (decision, analysis, thinking). It is note-taking and knowledge management. The sharp tool - the theory of finishing tools;
Some people use mind maps to arrange the day's schedule, manage tasks and even projects - Todo Tool Theory;
Some people also say that mind maps are good visualization tools, which can intuitively display their own thinking and communicate with others - the theory of visualization tools.
Some people even don't even understand what "mind map" is, so they will teach you how to draw mind maps and how to use mind Latest Mailing Database map software. In the eyes of these people, learning mind maps is like learning to swim. No matter what, just swim for a while, and you will naturally become familiar with water.
1st and 2nd class tools
Mind maps are by their very nature a thinking tool and can indeed be used to aid memory, outline, take notes, participate in knowledge management, manage calendar events and make visual presentations. But the mentioned field itself has very professional tools. In contrast, mind mapping can only be regarded as a second-class tool at most.
1. "Super Memory" is evil
Memory technology originated in ancient Greece and ancient Rome, and the more mature memory methods developed now include: "homonymous memory method", "digital imagination memory method", "alphabet method", "Roman room method"... There are many memory methods, but The rules are the same. In essence, it is to create a set of fixed hooks, use them skillfully, and then hang different "events" on the hooks.
The 12 laws involved in mnemonics: Imagination, Association, Synaesthesia/Sensuality, Exaggeration, Rhythm and Movement, Color, Number , Symbolism, Order, Attraction, Humour, Positive thinking.
In November 2005, Lu Chao, a 24-year-old graduate student in China, spent 24 hours and 4 minutes reciting the pi to 67,890 decimal places under the witness of several cameras and everyone, without making any mistakes. Lu Chao's method of memorizing pi, as well as any professional memory master's method of memorizing numbers and letter combinations, is essentially to visualize abstract things.For example: for Lu Chao, 23 is Jordan, because Jordan's number is 23; 14 is a rose, because Valentine's Day is February 14. In this way, the string of numbers 2314, in Lu Chao's view, is a visual image of Jordan holding a rose. The images are then connected into a feature film, and in the end, what Lu Chao remembers is actually a long series.Long-form serials are certainly easier to memorize than pi, but most of us can't even remember real long-form serials, and that's where training comes in. It is said that Lu Chao practiced for five hours a day and spent a whole year reciting pi.
First, to use mind maps to memorize, in essence, it is still necessary to use the laws of memory.
A mind map can indeed be turned into a tree full of hooks, and various events are hung on it, but in order to achieve the level of performing in front of everyone, you have to form a set of your own memory system, and then be willing to train hard. You also need to be able to draw mind maps out of thin air in your mind and master basic memory skills.
Second, it seems unrealistic to rely on mind maps to reach the level of memory masters.
We can imagine that a person wants to use a mind map to memorize 67890 digits of pi. Suppose he is already very good and can form a memory image keyword with 10 numbers, but to draw an event in 1 minute, it is possible to draw a picture alone. It will take 5 days and 5 nights to draw. When it comes to the game, you may have lost the game before half of the drawing is finished.
