* Showcased on ''Series/{{Homeland}}'' with Carrie doing this a lot. Justified in how her bipolar disorder causes her mind to be chaotic and she thus uses this to try and make some sense of things.
** Parodied beautifully on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' in a skit where Carrie (Creator/AnneHathaway) is told to keep busy on an empty board.
-->'''Saul''': You don't trust her? Is it because she's a woman, David?
-->'''David''': Look at what she did to that coke-board in ten seconds! ''(cut to Carrie having filled every inch of the board with photos, maps and strings)''

* In the beginning of the second episode of ''Series/{{Alias}}'', Sydney is pressing CIA handler Vaughn on how in just six months, they can take down SD-6. Realizing she believes it, Vaughn has Sydney draw an organizational chart of SD-6, a large main circle with a half-dozen branches that fits on a piece of notebook paper. Giving Syd a look of pity, Vaughn takes down and unrolls a ''massive'' sheet of paper showing a huge chart of the true scope of SD-6. As she takes in the various connecting branches, Sydney is stunned to realize SD-6 is at least ten times larger than she thought it was...and it's just ''one'' of the cells of the Alliance.
-->'''Vaughn''': We started working on this five years ago. And all it's done in that time is grow.
