How does your brain work?

I recently heard someone say that only a small percentage of people can see clear pictures in their minds. It made me think about all the different ways people think of things in their heads, and how we all process information a little differently.

Poll #1743917 How do you think?

Which of the following best describes the way you think?

visual/spatial
8(40.0%)
kinesthetic
0(0.0%)
musical
0(0.0%)
verbal
9(45.0%)
other
3(15.0%)


I'm really curious about people who think musically. I can't even begin to imagine what that must be like. I get songs stuck in my head sometimes, but I couldn't really say that I "think" musically.

I'm primarily a visual thinker with everything being an image in my head, but I think in words, too – spoken words – never spelled out like in a book or anything like that, but spoken clearly as in a conversation. 

Twitter

I just clicked through this interesting slideshow presentation about social media and it really impressed upon me the enormous number of people using Facebook and Twitter today.

I had a Twitter account for a few years but only posted a handful of times*. I didn't really "get" it... why would anyone care about my pointless little updates? "I am tired." "I am still at work." "I feel uninspired." A lot of people seem to really like Twitter, though.

I don't really "get" Facebook either, and while I do use it every now and than, I never feel like spending any real time there. It's too shallow and full of advertising. I get this creeping feeling that it's actively trying to steal time from me because there's nothing redeeming in it – it's just a sh!tload of people all crying out to be noticed and acknowledged. At least, that's how I interpret my "Friends Wall" (or whatever it's called) when it loads on the screen before me.

But getting back to Twitter. I'm curious about it and wonder if I gave it enough of a chance. I feel like I've really tried to like Facebook and just don't, but I never really spent any time trying with Twitter. So I just set up a new account and am following a bunch of art-related stuff. Seems interesting enough, but I still don't feel compelled to post anything.
