Hello, Hyperlinkers & Friends!
If you’re here, you probably ask yourself: what the hell is a hyperlinker? Is it a disease? Something you can eat? A new technology?
None of the above.
A hyperlinker is simply someone with an innate talent for connecting the dots. If you’re a hyperlinker your mind absolutely kicks ass at quickly & subconsciously making connections between different concepts, building your mental model. Then, as your mental model grows, you – equally quickly & subconsciously – using all these connections in your mind to understand new information.
Stuff hyperlinkers are great at
- If you’re a hyperlinker, you are a master of abstract thinking
- As a hyperlinker, you’re also good at grasping new information that’s somehow related to what you already know (this relationship isn’t always obvious to others – for instance when a hyperlinker thinks psychology is obvious because they see how it parallels physics)
- If you’re a hyperlinker, you have a killer intuition. That’s because you pick up subtle signals and your mind instantly tells you what to expect based on vaguely similar concepts or ideas
Stuff hyperlinkers struggle with
- Communication. As a hyperlinker you might get frustrated that some things are obvious to you, but not to others
- Initial learning. It takes you a while to build up your initial mental model. During this time, you might feel confused about a particular topic, but once everything falls into place – understanding becomes effortless
- Attention to detail. When you read A, your brain automatically helps you assume B and it’s easy to miss the fineprint
- Following set paths. As a hyperlinker, your mind works differently, so what makes others happy doesn’t necessarily make you happy. If you relate, our Odder Being Vision Cards might help you!
