Visual thinking definition

Visual thinking definition
Visual thinking, also called visual/spatial learning, picture thinking, or right brained learning, is the phenomenon of thinking through visual processing. Visual thinking has been described as seeing words as a series of pictures.[citation needed] It is common in approximately 60%–65% of the general population. "Real picture thinkers", those persons who use visual thinking almost to the exclusion of other kinds of thinking, make up a smaller percentage of the population. Research by child development theorist Linda Kreger Silverman suggests that less than 30% of the population strongly uses visual/spatial thinking, another 45% uses both visual/spatial thinking and thinking in the form of words, and 25% thinks exclusively in words. Research and theoretical background[edit] In the Netherlands there is a strong and growing interest in the phenomenon of 'true' "picture thinking", or "beelddenken".

Procédure d'entreprise Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Une procédure est la manière spécifiée d'effectuer une activité ou un processus (ISO/DIS 9000). Elle représente la manière de mettre en œuvre tout ou partie d'un processus et est reproductible. Le processus représente le Quoi ?, la procédure représente le Qui fait Quoi ?, Où ?

La procédure ne doit pas être confondue avec le mode opératoire qui décrit la manière d'effectuer une des tâches spécifiée dans la procédure.

Vizthink Rennes - BUG Un nouveau jalon a été délicatement déposé sur le chemin très fréquenté de l’innovation sociale à Rennes lors de l’apéruche de jeudi dernier. Non pas consacré à l’open data (autre événement TIC pachydermique de cette rentrée), mais à la visualisation des connaissances et aux méthodes qui s’y rapportent. Philippe Mac Clenahan, consultant de profession, a exposé les fondamentaux de la « doctrine » vizthink fondée sur l’approche visuelle de la pensée et de la créativité. Initiée par des fondateurs américains (David Sibbet, voir notamment « Visual Meetings »), cette communauté est un assemblage cohérent d’approches graphiques, méthodologiques d’origine variées visant au même but : mieux comprendre, mieux concevoir par une participation plus active des citoyens / salariés basée sur une approche visuelle des données et des connaissances.

Humanistic psychology Humanistic psychology is a psychological perspective which rose to prominence in the mid-20th century in response to the limitations of Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic theory and B.F. Skinner's behaviorism.[1] With its roots running from Socrates through the Renaissance, this approach emphasizes individuals inherent drive towards self-actualization and creativity. It typically holds that people are inherently good. In the 20th century humanistic psychology was referred to as the "third force" in psychology, distinct from earlier, even less humanistic approaches of psychoanalysis and behaviorism. Its principal professional organizations in the U.S. are the Association for Humanistic Psychology and the Society for Humanistic Psychology (Division 32 of the American Psychological Association). Origins[edit] One of humanistic psychology's early sources was the work of Carl Rogers, who was strongly influenced by Otto Rank, who broke with Freud in the mid-1920s. Conceptual origins[edit]

Visualization (computer graphics) See also Information graphics Visualization or visualisation is any technique for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message. Visualization through visual imagery has been an effective way to communicate both abstract and concrete ideas since the dawn of man. Visualization today has ever-expanding applications in science, education, engineering (e.g., product visualization), interactive multimedia, medicine, etc. Charles Minard's information graphic of Napoleon's march Computer graphics has from its beginning been used to study scientific problems. Most people are familiar with the digital animations produced to present meteorological data during weather reports on television, though few can distinguish between those models of reality and the satellite photos that are also shown on such programs. Scientific visualization is usually done with specialized software, though there are a few exceptions, noted below.

Thinking Visually Human Potential Movement The Human Potential Movement (HPM) arose out of the milieu of the 1960s and formed around the concept of cultivating extraordinary potential that its advocates believed to lie largely untapped in all people. The movement took as its premise the belief that through the development of "human potential", humans can experience an exceptional quality of life filled with happiness, creativity, and fulfillment. As a corollary, those who begin to unleash this assumed potential often find themselves directing their actions within society towards assisting others to release their potential. Adherents believe that the net effect of individuals cultivating their potential will bring about positive social change at large. Roots[edit] The movement has its conceptual roots in existentialism and humanism. In the middle of the 1960s, George Leonard did research across the United States on the subject of human potential for the magazine, Look. Authors and essayists[edit] Notable proponents[edit] Notes[edit]

Visual language A visual language is a system of communication using visual elements. Speech as a means of communication cannot strictly be separated from the whole of human communicative activity that includes the visual[1] and the term 'language' in relation to vision is an extension of its use to describe the perception, comprehension and production of visible signs. Overview[edit] An image that dramatizes and communicates an idea presupposes the use of a visual language. Just as people can 'verbalize' their thinking, they can 'visualize' it. The elements in an image represent concepts in a spatial context, rather than the linear form used for words. Visual Language[edit] Visual units in the form of lines and marks are constructed into meaningful shapes and structures or signs. Imaging in the mind[edit] What we have in our minds in a waking state and what we imagine in dreams is very much of the same nature.[3] Dream images might be with or without spoken words, other sounds or colours.
