How Nice of You to Ask!
The email came yesterday. I smiled hugely when I read it. What a gift! What a fine idea! Talk about something that is my passion! Here was a question on one of my favorite topics. We could explore this one for days.
The email said . . .
Do you invite or encourage ideas for posts? If so, I have a thought/question, a definitive answer to which I haven’t found anywhere:
How do people think? Well, to be more specific, does one use a language to think and form ideas? Or is it the result of a juxtaposition of experiences, facts and figures that enable one to think? Or is it an imagery without words in any language that helps you make a decision? What if one is fluent in three languages?
Well, the basic question is something like: When arriving at a decision, do you use words in your head?
Thank you, Zackman!
The short answer is that we all assemble our thoughts and ideas in different ways. So before we get to far into how it all works — left brain and right, young children, adults, and folks past their prine — let’s start by describing to each other the amazing ways our minds process words and pictures to bring us to the combinations of information that we call ideas.
Reflect for a while. Then would you write a few words about how an important, special, and fully thought idea comes to you?
I’ll write how it happens for me in the comment box. Once you read that, I suspect that you’ll have plenty of room and reason to write how it happens for you.
