I mentioned this a while ago and have had some conversation about it on-line, but I’d really like to hear from fans of mind-mapping software. Doesn’t matter which software, any will do for this discussion.
What I want to know is, what is it about mind-mapping that attracts you to doing it? Every time I have sat down to try it out, I wind up opening this very complex tool that would allow me to do all sorts of brainstorming, and using it to create a list or outline.
I can create a list anywhere.
Is it simply a matter of the way my mind works, and thus this tool wouldn’t be overly useful to me, or am I really missing something here? I’ve seen people rave about doing mind-maps, and I just don’t see it when I try.
In the end, I like my lists. I don’t see a huge benefit to moving away from lists, but maybe I’m not quite wrapping my head around it the way I should.
