I feel slightly vindicated this morning having watched the below fab segment from Ted.com by Sunni Brown that studies show that sketching and doodling improve our comprehension and our creative thinking. I was a doodler at school and had to curb my enthusiasm, as I was often reprimanded for not paying attention. Now I tend to only doodle when I’m on the phone and maybe there is legitimate reason to do so – to retain information.
Anyway this 5 minute segment from Ted.com is great and below is my doodle from a call this morning (I wonder what Freud would say – flowers, bunnies, houses? Seems I still doddle like a 12 year old)
