I've never been able to restrain my drawing/sketching/doodling tendencies. During my formal schooling, it came up from time-to-time as an issue of attentiveness. The assumption was that if I was doodling, I wasn't listening. For me it was in fact the opposite. I somehow think better when I sketch and draw. That has translated to writing words, ideas and concepts and then connecting them, filling things in, linking possibilities.

This TED talk suggests I don't need to feel bad about it.
