It's similar to using a fork -- circles in the bowl up in the air.
(Perpendicular to the stuff you're whipping) It's very similar to the way
most folks use a fork to mix up eggs.

I never learned how to use a Wisk the right way so don't have one.

Right, one of the advantages of whipping them into a bowl, especially with a
wire whisk, is that you get air into the eggs which makes them fluffier. I
also cook mushrooms and green chilies in the eggs, not before, and cook
onions, bell pepper, potatoes, and any meat beforehand. Cheese always goes
in last unless I'm making migas, in which case the cheese is in with the
eggs, chips, and pico.

I prefer to scramble them in a bowl first. My mother has a trick where
she will scramble them in a bowl, then keep scrambling even as she
pours the beaten eggs into the pan. The idea here is to get as much
air as possible into the eggs before and as they start to cook. Be
careful to not over-work the eggs, though, as they will not be as good
if scrambled too much.
