    Freemind looks too open sourcy for my liking. Mind Mapper is much better. It's worth the cost if you use mind maps a lot.

    I prefer to hold everything in my mind. Also, I am always on the lookout to refine procedures in order to make them more efficient, thus I would need to reset my mind map too many times - and that would act as a decrement to my gain in efficiency.

    I am still not convinced about mindmapping...
    If anything, I like handmade mindmaps. The uniformity in pc-made mindmaps makes them dull to me...

    ya they are pretty much only useful when you have a massive idea and its hard to keep track of everything. otherwise i see no point.

    Looks suspiciously like sentence diagramming which I always despised to the core of my being. I hate "learning techniques" that emphasize form over content. Though I guess it might be useful for presenting an idea to someone else, or for someone else presenting an idea to me.

    The thing with mindmapping for me is that:
    - it helps me to understand things and links between things
    - it helps me to remember multiple things that I have to do (my work includes multiple projects with multiple tasks that I have to do at certain point of time)
    - it helps me to put things into my memory for a storage puposes (I don't remember anything without mindmapping it in my own brain - that's Ne I guess and I learned to use Te to help the Ne)
    - it helps me to figure out new ways of doing things (it supports the creative process of Ne to put things into places)
    - it just fits my brain perfectly

    So, mindmapping might be boring but it helps (at least me) with life

    I personally LOVE using mind-maps- for studying and for jotting ideas.

    I don't think it quite relates to type, although, I know some people who would rather write out every details at every meeting. They write everything down and carry their organizers everywhere with them- and their organizers filled with detailed notes like there's no tomorrow. I think they're more of the examples of perhaps 'extreme' SJ types. It's how they operate. Nothing wrong with that. Everyone's different.

    I think the lack of extensive cross-links is what is unappealing to me. My projects are all cross-linked and it's kinda arbitrary where you draw the line for classifying chunks of them.

    ^^^ is the only reason I can see for switching to using mind maps. They don't quite mesh with how my mind works unfortunately. I'd need something with a 3D display and multiple axes to choose to display. Instead, I muddle along with Excel spreadsheets, which have the advantage that you can keep track of budgets and contracts as well.

    It may be a coincidence but about all the people I've met that like mindmapping are NF's. Any thoughts on that?
