But I'm not a visual thinker!

Some people protest that they're not visual thinkers and shy away from visual thinking approaches.

My off-the-cuff reply is that most people -- even avowed non-visual thinkers -- tend to consult a street directory when trying to figure out how to get from A to B:

The general point is that a visual approach may be the far-and-away the best tool for the job, even if you are not -- or don't consider yourself to be -- primarily a visual thinker.

Visual thinkers love visual tools and techniques, but visual tools and techniques aren't just for visual thinkers.
