"A new kind of intelligence is beginning to emerge. Fold over book Upside-Down Brilliance: The Visual-Spatial Learner "by Ph.D. Linda Kreg Silver Male
She describes the unique talents in people who think in pictures. She explains: They see the big picture because they see the world through an artist's eye. They remember what they see, but they forget what they hear.
They are disorganized, can not spell, and they have no sense of time, but they have an infectious sense of humor, lively imagination, and can lose yourself completely in the joy of the moment.
It was actually a visual-spatial talent that led to the computer and the internet came into being, the vivid showings at the Olympics and the International Space Station.
Did Leonardo da Vinci ADHD?
Leonardo da Vinci was one of the most famous creative people who ever lived.
About DaVinci had gone to school today, he would probably be diagnosed with ADHD and branded a loser.
Look what the researchers write of him:
He was severely dyslexic, his lyrics are hard to read because of all the misspellings and repetitions.
He had an enormous amount of energy and did not hear the other: he would learn in their own way.
He was a mess head that would have done well in school if he had not been so fleeting and fickle. He started a lot of subjects, but stopped almost immediately. The only thing he managed to engage over longer time was drawing.
He would not hear of schooling, and he would not read books.
He was stubborn and intense! He did not know anything about the 30% or 70%. For him it was always 100%!
He was full of defiance to all authority.
He began as an apprentice painter, Verrocchio, where he had ended up at the bottom of the ladder.
He found life as a painter was too narrow, so he decided to become a scientist, philosopher and inventor.
