Do You Consciously Stream When Searching?


If you refine your search by typing terms as you think of them, you are consciously streaming.


Why consciously stream when searching?

  • Less laborious than scanning by date, from, or subject.
  • Faster as the computer is simultaneously looking while you type the words as you recall them.
  • Thorough search method as content is recalled and the documents, emails, or attachments are searched accordingly.
  • Easy evaluation of the results, which begin wide and quickly narrow down to a few.
  • Multi-purpose method of searching as it prompts the brain to recall where it left off (whether it’s finding computer docs or physical items).
