Mind Mapping
  • Prof. Dr. Arthur Sybrandy
  • Cairo, Egypt
  • January 2007

Mind Mapping
  • Mind mapping is a graphical technique developed
    by Tony Buzan in the late 1960s.
  • Mind mapping is a powerful technique allowing you
    to make the best use of your brain power.
  • It is designed to improve thinking, learning, and
  • The technique uses a full range of cortical
  • Words
  • Images
  • Numbers
  • Logic
  • Rhythms
  • Colors
  • Spatial awareness

Mind Mapping
  • Unlike the outlining methods you learned in high
    school, mind mapping doesn't constrain your
    creative inclinations by requiring you to think
  • It has Four important characteristics
  • The subject is represented by a central image.
  • The main themes of the subject radiate from the
    central image as main branches.
  • Minor themes are linked to the main themes.
  • All the branches are connected forming a nodal
  • The pictures and their structure allows the right
    half of the brain to be better utilized.

Mind Mapping Structure
Mind Mapping Structure - Levels
The Laws of Mind Mapping
  • Start to draw in the center of a blank, unlined
    page of paper, with an image of the desired
    topic, using at least three colors.
  • Use images, symbols, codes and dimension
    throughout your Mind Map.
  • Select key words and print - using capitals or
    lower case letters.
  • Each word/image must stand alone, on its own
  • The lines must be connected, starting from the
    central image. In the center, the lines are
    thicker, organic and flowing, becoming thinner as
    they radiate outwards.

The Laws of Mind Mapping
  • Make the lines the same length as the word/image.
  • Use colors - your own code - throughout the Mind
  • Develop your own personal style of Mind Mapping.
  • Use emphasis and show associations between
    different related topics in your Mind Map.
  • Keep the Mind Map clear by using numerical order
    or outlines to surround your branches.

How to Mind Map
  • Place a large white sheet of paper horizontally,
    or use a Mind Map pad.
  • Gather a selection of colored pens, ranging from
    thin nib to highlighter.
  • Select the topic, problem or subject to be Mind
    Mapped. This will be the basis of your central
  • Gather any materials, research or additional
    information that is needed, so that you have all
    the facts at your fingertips. Now start to draw
    in the centre of your page.
  • Start in the centre with an unframed image -
    approximately 1½ inches (3cm) high and wide for
    A4 and 4 inches (10cm) for A3.
  • Use dimension, expression and at least three
    colors in the central image in order to attract
    attention and aid memory.

How to Mind Map
  • Make the branches closest to the centre thick,
    attached to the image, and 'wavy' (organic).
    Place the Basic Ordering Ideas (BOIs) or chapter
    headings on those branches.
  • Branch thinner lines off the end of the
    appropriate BOI in order to hold supporting data.
  • Use images wherever you find it is possible.
  • The image or word should always sit on a line of
    the same length.
  • Use different colors as your own special code to
    show people, places, topics, themes, dates and to
    make the Mind Map more attractive visually.
  • Capture all your ideas, or those that others have
    contributed, then edit, reorganize, make more
    beautiful, elaborate, or clarify as a second and
    yet further advanced stage of thinking.

Uses and Benefits of Mind Mapping
  • Learning
  • Reduce those 'tons of work'. Feel good about
    study, review and exams. Develop confidence in
    your learning abilities.
  • Overviewing
  • See the whole picture, the global overview, at
    once. Understand the links and connections.
  • Concentrating
  • Focus on the task for better results.
  • Memorizing
  • Easy recall. 'See' the information in your mind's
  • Organizing
  • Parties, holidays, projects, etc. Make it make
    sense to you.

Uses and Benefits of Mind Mapping
  • Presenting
  • Speeches become clear, relaxed and alive. You can
    be at your best.
  • Communicating
  • Communicate in all forms with clarity and
  • Planning
  • Orchestrate all aspects, from beginning to end,
    on one piece of paper.
  • Meetings
  • From planning to agenda, chairing, taking the
    minutes ... these jobs can be completed with
    speed and efficiency.
  • Training
  • From preparation to presentation, make the job

Uses and Benefits of Mind Mapping
  • Thinking
  • The Mind Map will become a concrete record of
    your thoughts at any stage of the process.
  • Negotiating
  • All the issues, your position and maneuverability
    on one sheet.
  • Brain Blooming
  • The new brain-storming, in which more thoughts
    are generated and appropriately assessed. It is
    often assumed that the greater the quantity of
    ideas generated, the more the quality declines.
    In fact, the reverse is true. The more you
    generate ideas and the greater the quantity, the
    more the potential quality increases. This is a
    key lesson in understanding the nature of your
    own creativity.
  • Lectures
  • When you attend a lecture, use a Mind Map to keep
    a vivid visual memento of it.
