I admit that I doodle constantly during many, many meetings. Last week I tried to explain to someone that it helps me concentrate on what is happening, because I'm able to focus on what is being said and not on everything surrounding me.
Do you agree? Does it seem like someone who draws flowers and vines and buttons over 3/4 of a notebook page isn't paying attention? It probably does seem that way. But it actually keeps my mind free from distractions that take me away from what is being said.
Are there any other doodlers reading this? What do you think?
