Suppose your favourite newspaper would apply a new reading experience to its columns. Halfway the page the direction of sentences is reversed. I know the brain can handle it, but 90 % of its readers would be annoyed.
For some strange reason, this is exactly what a lot of mind mappers do. Reversing the logical order on the left hand side of the mind map. Now all mind mapper accept that mind maps are made clockwise. In principle you can read it in many ways, but “if there is an order to the information, you read it clockwise” (Jamie Nast, Idea mapping).
I really cannot understand it. On the right side of the mind map the branches cover the period up till 1994. Going to the left hand side of the mind map I start with 2001 and end with 2010. Roberta like many others would have expected it to start at 2010 and ending at 2001. So on the right hand side of the mind map you go forward in time and on the left hand side back in time? It makes no sense to me. It is not how the brain works.
My suggestion, abandon software that works anti clockwise on the subbranches. Moreover use software that does follow brain logics.
