So I thought that I would do a poll on this as I am curious to the results, I only just discovered that “picture this...” or “imagine a beach..” wasn’t metaphorical. I don’t seem to have a visual imagination, or memory. It’s all facts, lists of details, but pretty shallow and factual. “Picture an apple” - I know what an apple is, I know it’s apple shaped and green or red. I know it’s smooth. I don’t imagine an apple as an image though... apparently this is called Aphantasia and explains so much about how my brain works!! My facial recollection is very poor for example, and easily overwritten so I don’t notice small changes but drastic ones really unsettled me. If it’s a scale of 0 to 10, apparently most people sit at the mid range, there are details and an image but not super hyper realistic (I think a lot of creatives are at the upper end of the scale) So - what’s your “minds eye” like? If you imagine a beach, what comes to your mind? Is it vivid, detailed? Can you imagine you are there? I am intrigued.... I didn’t know people could do this!!
