Doodling Increases Comprehension
Turns out, doodling actually helps a person understand and retain information. As author, business owner and big-thinker Sunni Brown explains in this short TED talk, doodling works because it engages all four modalities of learning (visual, auditory, reading/writing, kinesthetic), so while you have your nose down and your pen working, that information is soaking into your brain like a sponge.
So let’s rejoice, all you fellow doodlers. What we’re doing is natural, so Brown says, and it’s keeping us ahead of the game.
