According to the Social Science Research Network most of us are ‘visuals’ – we make sense of things in images. It’s also interesting how we might use images and symbols in our everyday language: A distant relationship. Things feel up hill. We need to hit targets. Most or us have probably used an emoji or two today to convey an emotion of thought.
According to the Visual Teaching Alliance, visuals transmit information faster than spoken or written words; we can get the sense of a visual scene in less than 1/10 of a second, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text.
A picture paints a thousand words.
