Selfanalysis using mind maps

Whether you're weighing up the pros and cons of changing your job or trying to work out your long-term priorities, Mind Maps can be an enormous help in clarifying your thoughts and feelings.

Because a Mind Map uses the full range of cortical skills it gives a comprehensive reflection of the self. Having seen this clear external image of yourself, you are less likely to suffer the unhappy consequences of making decisions that go against your nature and your real needs and desires.

It is helpful to begin with a 'complete picture' self-analysis Mind Map, which includes as many as possible of your major characteristics and personality traits. There are four major stages.

Preparation of your environment

Before you begin, you need to prepare your environment, following the recommendations given in Chapter 10 (pages 109-110). In such a sensitive area as self-analysis, it is particularly important that your materials should be of the highest quality and your environment as attractive, comfortable and mentally stimulating as possible. Caring for yourself will make your self-analysis more open, complete, profound and useful.
