VISUALIZATION

#### Reasoning and General Intelligence – VISUAL REASONING

Visual intelligence measures the ability to process visual material and to employ both physical and mental images in thinking. As a result people with a high visualization find it easier to comprehend information and communicate it to others. Your visualization skills determine how well you perceive visual patterns and extract information for further use. Visualization also facilitates the ability to form associations between pieces of information something which helps improve long term memory.

Odd-man out type problem

EXAMPLE 1. Choose the figure which is different from the others.

Sol. (d) The figures form a series. The complete figure rotates 90° CW in each step. Fig. (d) does not fit in the series as it is the same as fig. (b). Hence fig. (d) is the answer.

Counting of figures problem

EXAMPLE 2. How many triangles are there in the given diagram?

(a) 18     (b) 17     (c) 16      (d) 15

Sol.      (b)

The triangles are:

∆ABF: ∆AGB: ∆AGF: ∆BFC;

∆BCE: ∆CEF: ∆BFE: ∆HBC;

∆HCE: ∆HEF: ∆HBF: ∆BGH;

∆FGH: ∆HCD:∆HDE:∆AFH;

∆ABH:
