How does PunkAs think?

Postby Dead Kid » Sun Feb 12, 2017 5:43 pm

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_thinking
"Real picture thinkers", those persons who use visual thinking almost to the exclusion of other kinds of thinking, make up a smaller percentage of the population. Research by child development theorist Linda Kreger Silverman suggests that less than 30% of the population strongly uses visual/spatial thinking, another 45% uses both visual/spatial thinking and thinking in the form of words, and 25% thinks exclusively in words. According to Kreger Silverman, of the 30% of the general population who use visual/spatial thinking, only a small percentage would use this style over and above all other forms of thinking, and can be said to be true "picture thinkers".

Fascinating stuff. If you think of something you plan to do, which pops into your head first - a word or a picture?

I guess the opposite of a picture thinker is being unable to shut off your inner narrator.

my thoughts are like a montage of pictures, even like a video at times.

I mostly represent things with pictures, including made-up ones for places I've never seen. Thinking in words takes a back seat - it seems less efficient. Can't really think a sentence faster than what it would take to pronounce each syllable, but a picture flashes up instantly. So words are mostly reserved for some intangible things, remembering quotes, sentences I plan to speak/write, or imagining how an argument would play out.
