modes of thought

A Quote by Thomas G. West on visual, spatial abilities, modes of thought, complex problems, sciences, and arts

" Visual and spatial modes of thought seem well suited to dealing with certain complex problems and are often closely associated with major creative achievements in the sciences as well as the arts. Visual-spatial abilities can play a much more important role in major creative accomplishments;  in many different fields, even when they are not commonly thought to be highly visual;  than is commonly recognised."
