    To me it seems like without visualization, all you can do is memorize worded explanations without understanding them. But I know that can't be right; it's just my bias because I'm a visual learner.
    Yeah I actually have to see everything (usually in the form of spider plots or flowcharts) in my mind to really understand the topics.



    Why do radio stations play the same cycle of songs at the same time every day? It's come to the point where I can now predict which songs they'll be playing.

    Even though it was rainy at Fest today, I had a lovely time. Until the end of the day when everyone else got cranky/over-sensitive and brought me down. :P
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I had an epiphany today. A very profound thought, the kind of realization that makes you stop thinking for a moment because you need that moment to appreciate the depth and enormity of that thought.




    And then I forgot it. I don't remember at all. I don't even have a general idea of what it was about.

    Yep, and it isn't just the graphs, but it's visualizing things in 3D, also. I don't understand how auditory learners can understand anything that operates in 3D. Basic examples: how can you understand electrons around a nucleus without visualizing it? How can you understand the concepts of pressure and temperature without visualizing the molecules bumping around? (Maybe I'll start a thread later, unless someone else wants to do it .)

    (In case that wasn't a rhetorical question....) The top songs are the songs that draw the most listeners, and therefore the most commercial endorsement money.

    If only I had £1,000,000... *into a dream state*.

    Re: the first part

    Yes! I imagine everything in terms of images too. Even when I have to explain concepts, it's through loads of diagrams (but analogies that conjure up images help too). I'm not an auditory learner at all either.

    Re: the second part

    Don't people get bored of the repetitions?

    Edit: Perhaps they don't. Oh well.

    I don't wanna get up today. Argh. I hate being surrounded by so many people, it drains me completely.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    Apparently, I'm a rep whore. Meaning, I will not be repping, anyone, ever again. Or at least for 3 months. That seems more reasonable. Yes.

    Cim is free game though.

    I can't believe you're actually real. Stop ruining the INFP name. You're setting us back at least a generation in progress.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.
