I guess my greatest fear is that I am already a weird player who gets warned by the floor for acting out of turn and walking around too much.

I also worry about multi-tasking but I have poor memory and I also fear it may come off too weird that I am not writing an outline but a mindmap.

I have been playing 20+ years and have played with 10,000?ish different opponents. I have never witnessed anyone taking notes while at the table. I am not sure it is allowed by most card rooms and would have the entire table gunning for you if it were (and you did).
Best answer: only take mental notes

Other possible solutions might include playing online; leaving the table to enter notes into a phone app ( the table will not care if they think you are texting)
If you have a legitimate mental disorder and you need notes to track your own game you might announce that to the table and be upfront. Most players I know would not object as long as you don't hold up the action unreasonably.

I used to take notes to fill in the poker diary on here over 10 year ago. People would ask if i was writing a book. I just said yes.

Who cares what anyone else thinks. And the card room has no right to say anything as long as you don't blatantly write anyone's name in it I guess...

Or just use the notes facility on your phone/pad etc.

I take notes all the time on my phone using the notepad app.

I've found that plenty of people want to talk about Ev / Odds / %'s and are willing to recap a hand with me while on break or share their advice / opinions. My home casino softly enforces 'no phones while in a hand' rule. So, I just try to note as much of the important information as quickly as possible. Then when I get a moment I fill in the blanks so I can review the hand(s) later on.
