Vivid Thinking vs Visual Thinking

With this problem of trying to use Dan Roams Visual Thinking framework from The Back of Paper Napkin and trying to translate the House sharing data we have generated. I have side stepped and decided to move on to Dan Roams second book Blah Blah Blah which is geared around Vivid Thinking joining both words and pictures.

So the first exercise for the House sharing data on Thursday is translate specific words into pictures (from P78)

We saw a word, we draw a picture

To me this is easiest starting point as I have found it very difficult to match Dan’s first framework with the data. His original frameworks were around drawing business problems not clarifying data as such but that is possibly me missing the connection as he does translate a lot of data in one chapter of the Back of the paper Napkin.
