I learn best when I'm listening while I draw. I always struggled in school because teachers saw this as "goofing off."

I completely understand this scenario XD All of my notes are covered with doodles and drawings.

I'm a super good student, so luckily teachers let me draw all I want. (though I'm pretty sure some of my teachers get kinda irritated :XD:)

I have exactly the same... I mean, I draw almost all the time when I'm in school. For so long that teachers stopped minding it as long as I get good grades xD

There are actually several studies that support this practice, as well. Teachers absolutely hate it though.

I completely agree. I'm a reading/writing type learner, so I can absorb things faster when I'm doodling or writing while I'm listening to someone. When a teacher looks like he/she would disapprove of doodling, I tend to write practically everything he/she says to stay in focus. So my notebooks are always super full.

I used to draw all over my church bulletins during the pastor's sermon. I'm grateful my parents understood that doodling helps me listen!

I did it sometimes in high school, but now I'd rather not do that.
Well, I understand that during a lesson someone may not be interested, or attention drops, but still... it's always better to focus on the matter at hand as much as possible and take notes.

I do that in class too. I have about one year before they start striking me out for doing it XD
