Information Processing/Critical Thinking

How do you use Mnemonics for information processing?

I process information, or my cluttered thoughts best when I’ve got blank pages to type on, or write on. It generally takes me 700-900 words of writing about random things to get all of the random thoughts out of my head. Once they’re on paper it seems like I have better clarity of mind to accomplish what previously seemed ambiguous.

I’m very slow to grasp ideas, or a line of logic in oral form, but I can process it much faster if I can read and write out my confusion about said subject.

I also forget important points in say a debate or some type of confrontation (whether a cordial debate personal debate, or otherwise).
