The Case for Visual Thinking and Modeling

The Case for Visual Thinking and Modeling | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it
What neurologists, artists, and designers know can work for you, too. Why do creatives turn to sketching during the ideation phase of a project? It is a quick way to articulate a concept and it stimulates cross-cognitive brain function. In other words, drawing out your ideas leads to a deeper understanding of a problem and faster decision-making.

Cognitive Bias Cheat Sheet

Cognitive Bias Cheat Sheet | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it

Cognitive biases are just tools, useful in the right contexts, harmful in others. They’re the only tools we’ve got, and they’re even pretty good at what they’re meant to do. We might as well get familiar with them and even appreciate that we at least have some ability to process the universe with our mysterious brains.

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Dave Wood's insight:
Fascinating article that culminated in a summary  of the range of cognitive biases that underlie flawed thinking (our own and others).  Good coaching surfaces assumptions and biases and tests them.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 18, 4:12 PM

Four problems that biases help us address:

 

Problem 1: Too much information.

There is just too much information in the world, we have no choice but to filter almost all of it out. Our brain uses a few simple tricks to pick out the bits of information that are most likely going to be useful in some way.

 

Problem 2: Not enough meaning.

The world is very confusing, and we end up only seeing a tiny sliver of it, but we need to make some sense of it in order to survive. Once the reduced stream of information comes in, we connect the dots, fill in the gaps with stuff we already think we know, and update our mental models of the world.

 

Problem 3: Need to act fast.

We’re constrained by time and information, and yet we can’t let that paralyze us. Without the ability to act fast in the face of uncertainty, we surely would have perished as a species long ago. With every piece of new information, we need to do our best to assess our ability to affect the situation, apply it to decisions, simulate the future to predict what might happen next, and otherwise act on our new insight.

 

Problem 4: What should we remember?

There’s too much information in the universe. We can only afford to keep around the bits that are most likely to prove useful in the future. We need to make constant bets and trade-offs around what we try to remember and what we forget. For example, we prefer generalizations over specifics because they take up less space. When there are lots of irreducible details, we pick out a few standout items to save and discard the rest. What we save here is what is most likely to inform our filters related to problem 1’s information overload, as well as inform what comes to mind during the processes mentioned in problem 2 around filling in incomplete information. It’s all self-reinforcing.

VISUALIZING TIME BY ICASTIC

VISUALIZING TIME BY ICASTIC | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it
How do you see the passage of time? Many people we asked draw something immediately, as if they always knew, even if they had never thought about it before. What emerges is an unexpected variety of visuals ranging from minimal abstractions (dots), to lines, to circles and surfaces, and beyond to complex symbolic forms.Empty description
Dave Wood's insight:
Amazing set of images by people asked to draw the passage of time. As a visual coach this reinforces the need to elicit the clients description of concepts rather than introducing your own. The way people relate to time has a profound impact on their thinking and behaviour. Clean Language provides a set of questions to "unpack"the client's metaphor /s of time,

How to Disrupt Worry

How to Disrupt Worry | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it
What, me worry? It’s safe to say that most of us worry to varying degrees. Some of us might actually qualify as champions of worry. We know how to worry about anything and everything. We’ve learned to let our minds dwell on things to the point of mental exhaustion. Worry is a form of stress, and left unattended it can become a relentless habit that can intercept our better judgment, hijack our sleep, tempt us into emotional eating and trap us in a cycle of fatigue. Try this simple strategy to disrupt the pattern of worry!Empty description
