Visual spatial learners,
...who are we?
My mom said one day that when I "get going" I am swirling around like a top. The only time I stop is when she sticks her arm in the middle of my swirl, then I say, "huh?" It's not that I'm ignoring her or that I have selective hearing, I'm just lost in my swirl...
It's not that I can't concentrate because I most certainly can. Since my mind works in pictures I tend to focus on whatever I see.
Visual children tend to...
...play with things like Legos because they create something they can see.
...want to be something not play with something.
...have a need to be the center of attention.
...don't need repetition. Once they get the concept they want to move on.
...tend to be more impatient.
...generally don't get to finish what the've started before something else catches their eye.
...do better when they can type instead of write.
...have a messy room. When their things are in sight they know where they are.
...can't be bothered with details.
...seem like they can't follow a train of thought.
...think and remember in pictures or movies.
...can seem inarticulate. It takes awhile to translate the pictures into words.
...think abstractly not deductively.
...can remember everything they see but forget what they hear.
...forget what they were thinking because they can't see the words.
These characteristics are in direct proportion to the level of intelligence.
Their intensity is an indicator of IQ.
If their talent goes unrecognized visual people tend to feel like they
are dumb. They feel like or become invisible.
