"Proper" use of mind maps (1)

"Proper" use of mind maps (1)

I think it is important to learn that mind maps are not a magical piece of work that helps everyone to instantly understand everything.

Mind maps can be as ordinary as writing something and putting it together with other descriptions.

There is no standard way to say if a mind map is complete or not. It depends on the purpose which you want your mind map to fulfill. You may want to talk about vocabulary items which are similar in meaning but another person may want to talk about vocabulary items which are opposite in meaning. When you compare both mind maps, you can say which mind map is _for_ a particular purpose. This is the most important thing. Everyone has his/her own way of thinking. Please respect his/her way of putting things together on a mind map.
