Brains Rules (X) — Vision Trumps All Other Senses!

Out of the five senses — vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch — vision trumps them all! Yes, a picture’s worth 1000 words!

Why?

  • Our brains see letters and words as tiny pictures, not letters and words
  • The brain uses roughly 1/2 of our thinking resources on vision
  • Studies showed only 10 percent retention (three days later) for auditory learning vs. 65 percent for lectures using visuals
  • People remembered more than 2,500 pictures with at least 90 percent accuracy several days post-exposure, with as little as 10 seconds of  exposure!  Accuracy rates a year later still hovered around 63 percent! (see Play By Rules, Rule #10)

Less words, more pictures.  Sounds like a plan! 🙂
