@jessmahler hey uh your article about your experience with aphantasia is the first time I’ve read a description that matches how I think. Thank you. People think I must be very visual in my head because I do lighting design and highly associative tasks (which many people remember visually). But in both cases, my brain works in abstract associations. I know what colours go together because I have seen them before, and can put them in front of me. But I don’t picture scenes or memories in my head (well, not beyond the limited sense of ‘outline’ that you describe as experiencing).


@s0 You are very welcome! Glad it connected for you.

I love connecting with folks who share an 'odd' experience/self aspect.
