Brainstorming Techniques

I believe mind mapping does help prepare for outlining important details one intends to mention.   I find it much easier doing this on paper, however.   I know before my final essay I will have changed some of these points to narrow down the importance of each.   I possibly will not include as many details in order to explain the attitudes of each opinion regarding medical tourism and the two sides in more depth. As it stands I had many different topics to bring up in reference to the main topic and I see in a visual way that it needs to be tuned down.
Over all, mind mapping helps me with being able to weigh out the less important aspects before attempting a compilation of thoughts.   If each bubble had a scale, the most important could be weighed before the final production.   This is a very helpful prewriting technique.
