A year ago today, I took a quiz on Facebook about what my brain is good at. My results then were “Linguistic Thinking,” and I think it had something to do with writing and words. I retook the quiz today at got “Creative Thinking,”, which says “You can easily visualize objects in three dimensions. You tend to think best when you are moving and you are likely to be particularly skilled at working with your hands. You may enjoy building models and making maps.”
A year ago, I was just getting into being a journalism major in college. While being linguistic is a part of that, so is creativity. Both types of thinking are needed in journalism. I think I encompass both types, but maybe is more prevalent than the other at particular times. Our brains are funny like that sometimes!
