by Jon Pearson — A picture is a thousand words. Actually, according to the original Chinese saying, a picture is ten thousand words. So, maybe thinking better visually can help us think better verbally. If I ask you, “What was your favorite birthday?” your brain goes on a picture search, not a text search. You’re not reading words but sifting (subliminally) through pictures at lightning speed until specific scenes and feelings pop up, which only then may be put into words
