    I don't do too well with pictures but if I focus then 3D forms are perfectly clear. I took a draughting class in high school and playing with 3D objects in my mind was really easy. I usually get a strong feeling and an idea of something, the pictures that come up in my mind are like something looked at through a thick hazy glass. Nothing more detailed than that.

    My auditory memory is not that great either. If something is presented orally in class or something like that, it goes in one ear and out the other. I do much better with writing things out and then I can imagine them with perfect detail.

    But with songs I can tell what song it is in a matter of seconds.

    I think of myself as pretty imaginative, but when I imagine things, I do not bother with what the stuff actually looks like. That's irrelevant to me. My imagination moves too fast, like a train. If I look outside, the landscape is blurry. It's also kind of like a dream. There's a lot to it, so it's hard to explain, but with me, there's not such a great emphasis on visual detail in my mind. As soon as I have enough clarity to understand what the picture means, I jump into the next frame.

    I have a VERY vivid imagination and often see hilarious scenarios in my head.

    Absolutely! That plus my reasonably well-developed Ne adds up to some interesting daydreaming...

    Nope. I'm the dud SCUD missile that the DoD dropped and didn't go off, so they had to say, "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...uuuuuhhhhhh....dge, we're gonna have to shoot the aerial shot again." And then they did, and a whole row of houses and shit blew up.

    almost all my mental images, if even present, are usually incredibly vague.
    this is why i can never be a good mechanical engineer.

    math and linguistics though... well i do imagine those things very vividly.
    for example if i'm imagining a sentence.
    or if i'm imagining a song, it comes in great detail.

    but would-be visual thoughts are vague and scarce.

    That kind of 'imagination' that you mention I think is more a visualization skill/characteristic. Most people do *not* accurately visualize objects in 3D. They also do not accurately remember colors (which a lot of DIYers realize too late when buying paint or something interior decorating related).

    Also, imagining something and remembering something - and then being able to modify it mentally in your head as a 3D shape (and spin it around for different sides etc.) is again, a very specific and I think uncommon ability.

    I don't have that kind of precise recall/imagination. But I think the way I remember and visualize things is more applicable to an NP. I have a fuzzy idea about things but without a vibrant visual picture - I more get a gut feeling about whether something works or not. More often than not, my gut feeling is right.

    Except when it comes to spatial accuracy. In which case I am usually waaaaaay off.

    I'm sure some mechanics and engineers can do this or did this naturally
