comment Can we enter data at the speed of thought?
@ Steven Jeuris - thanks, I made some edits. Basically my question is 2) "What are the effects of slower text entry than the speed of thinking?" in a very general way.

@ caseyr547 - well, what is preventing me from being calm and focused is exactly the anxiety and frustration caused by having lots of thoughts and ideas coming in my mind, while being constrained to entering them at snail speed.

comment Can we enter data at the speed of thought?
@caseyr547 - let me give an example with translation as a mind activity. Having to keep the translation of a sentence in my mind until I type it, feels to only obstruct my mind. It definitely does not feel like I gain any advantage from having some extra time to think while typing. I prefer to type what's coming to my mind and then read it and fix it (organize it). After all, isn't it more productive to use less short-term memory by doing one activity after the other, rather than trying to do both simultaneously?

comment Can we enter data at the speed of thought?
Hm, I view the issue in an entirely different way. I like to be able to quickly enter all my (overwhelming) ideas first and then organize them, once available on the screen. Data input is not a process of organizing thoughts on its own to me, but only a part of the whole process.

comment Why do many people not use tabbed navigation (e.g. in an internet browser)?
"A user may not be aware of the existence of tabs" - this is the crux of the issue. Users are initially not aware of a lot of other interface elements - e.g. breadcrumbs. But my subjective observation is that early or late users seem to figure out the purpose of some elements, without external guidance, whereas tabs seem to remain completely out of sight and mind for a lot for the same people.

"power users vs casual computer users" - I would agree in general, but I have observed this lack of grasp of tabs among people who use computers daily, on their workplaces and then at home.

Browsers come with tabs turned on by default since quite a time. In web site interfaces tabs are also "by default".

comment predisposition towards organising information in hierarchical outlines?
Outline view is not the same as having a tree in a left pane and a blank page on the right pane. The outline view simply shows you a structured page, while in hierarchical PIMs you have each branch of the tree contain a page of its own.

comment Any research on right-hand/left-hand based preferences when interacting with an interface?
@Xurtio - What do you mean by saying "and prefers menus and sidebars on the right on the screen" - menus and sidebars containing navigational elements or action elements, as described in my question?
