I've asked this before, but there's a lot of new members since then

I think mainly in words:

I'll think: ' I must go to the shop '

OR: " I must feed the bird ' - I actually think the ' Words '

Some people think more in " Pictures '

How do you think ??

I think for me it's kind of both..words and pictures. But sometimes I just stare into space and I don't think I'm really thinking at all then. :confused:

I too am not good when it comes to visual imagery. I always struggle when asked to try guided imagery/visualisation for anxiety/relaxation .
My drawing ability is probably lower than that of a 7-8 year old.

Definitely words.
Sometimes have to look hard at something to think but it's not usually pictures.

Always pictures.

It's something I've never thought about either. It's an interesting thought :).

For me, mainly word, I physically move my tongue is if I am talking allowed too (don't know why, just seem to get muddled up if I don't).

I am actually a pretty good drawer, I am doing an art course. I do have difficulty with annotating my work though because when I am working on a project a single image will just randomly pop in to my head and then goes away. Don't know how it got there or anything so find it hard to explain it.
