Mind Charts are a system that allows you to organize information related to a content or conception, easing its memorization and allowing the connection of affiliated ideas. It’s done in the form of an illustration, where the main idea is linked to secondary ideas, and delineations, symbols or other graphic coffers can indeed be included to accompany the information. By condensing the information and being suitable to group a large number of generalities, it favors productivity, making this tool veritably useful in different surroundings.

Characteristics of mind maps

The elaboration of internal charts is a creative process that depends on the details and tastes of its creator.

– It’s born from the imagination about how ideas or generalities related to a specific content could be captured.

– Despite this freedom in its prosecution, there are characteristics that must have in common to be considered an internal chart.

First, the main idea must be represented or represented in a central image, also in hierarchical order according to significance, the secondary ideas will crop.

These secondary ideas or themes are represented as spoons and can carry symbols or images that allow them to be snappily defined.

Also, these secondary ideas can give rise to other spoons and so on until all the ideas that are sought to be captured are covered.

The principle of mind maps

The starting point is to define the central theme or the main idea to be addressed, placing it in the center of the runner, and it may be accompanied by an image that’s easy to relate to. The images are more suggestive because they allow you to snappily identify what information you want to convey.

The association

The coming step is to organize the secondary ideas associated with the main content by placing them in order of significance or applicability to the central content. These ideas are joined in the form of branches or bifurcations following the strings of the timepiece for a better association of information. Each of these ideas corresponds to a sub-theme that can be further developed with other sub-themes. Now, each subtopic must-have in turn be linked with a keyword, it isn’t recommended to write long generalities.

Also, each subtopic would be broken down, adding precise information, you can also add images, indeed arrows to link the information. You can place the number of branches that you consider necessary, but always take care that it’s timely information.


The illustration must contain colors, of at least three types

In order to more fluently assimilate and crack what we’re reading by making internal associations. The use of images and colors activates the right semicircle, favoring appreciation and retention. Remember to also take care of the size of the letter, it may be necessary to reduce it, always taking care that it remains comprehensible.

Mind Mapping
