Embrace Your Thinking Style
When I first started thinking about how I think best, someone mentioned that my thought process was like a distillery.
I take a wide range of topics and ideas and boil them down into one keyword or sentence.
It takes time to process the information. I use to be embarrassed by how slow I thought , ,especially when I was in grade-school.
Many times I would be in conversation with someone and as they talk about an idea, I would go to work inside my head.
Moments later the other person would be like, “Earnest are you still here”. And sheepishly I would reply that I was lost in thought.
But now I just tell people before-hand that if you see or hear me go silent, I am in the process of making you a fresh-squeezed thought and is it ok if do this?
I am taking the seeds of thought you gave me, planting them into my mind, letting them take root, waiting for the tree to grow organically, picking the freshest fruit for you
Then I take a whole bushel of fruit and turn it into a fresh squeezed cup of thought-juice just for you.
So embrace your thinking style and find what works best for you and for others around you
To name a few different ways of thought
Some people think out loud
Some inside their head
Some while moving
Some while talking to others
Some through visual
Some through audio
And the list goes on...
