    So basically you understand what is going on in your mind by the concept itself rather than 'seeing' the concept in action and THEN translating that into a concept?

    That is how my mind works. I have a mostly foggy picture of what's going on from the concepts that are interconnecting and acting. Any form of thinking on my part is just following the concepts until I reach a conclusion I'm seeking or until I get distracted.

    In the book Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz, the character describes how he reacts to things not by the idea of it happening -- which he states doesn't bother him -- but of the images he gets in his mind.

    Now I'm wondering if a vivd imagination (And other kinds of thinking) correlates with different learning styles.

    Is this like pin the donkey on the lucid dream that walked ten thousand miles across the acid and tripped as soon as an imagination foot note cropped up along the vivid intersection of thoughts. Man I want some of that, and here an old staff member was saying how he enjoyed that leafy stuff, the younger staff member commented you mean a bong, hashish. Remember kiddie winks you too can have a vivid imagination just smoke some magic mushroom and prepare a canvas with colors neatly packaged next to them, preferably toe painting. Yay! go nuts.

    I used to have a darkly creativity for that I did. Nowadays its lightly flavored with a hint of moo juice. I know, I has an imagination somewhere, but a vivid imagination, its like calling a vivid dream pot black.

    You all have one, just differently interpreted. hahah a staple has an imagination too, vividly dreams of being a ninja staple that was proud to attach itself to a colourful sign on the back of some randoms back. 'The Nuts, foo! Kick the nuts! When kick me just ain't enough!'

    If I understand correctly, I can relate to this! i do not generally picture things clearly in my mind visually. I do however have quite an imagination...I am often coming up with fantastical ideas, how the world will be in the future, and how bad things can be in certain situations :p I imagine utopia, beauty, nature, as well as deep darkness, sadness, and what it is like for someone to experience great emotion in their life. I imagine I am going through their experiences in life as they tell me their stories. I think this is all imagination...and I do not believe it needs to be purely visual at all! I know I have a unique learning style, so it makes sense to me that imagination behaves in different ways! :-) Good points, Luna L/Skyward!

    People say that I have e vivid imagination, but that's not true. I see the world in caricature, that is all.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

I also think in words but not as often as pictures.
    Yes! I think in music too. I always thought that was so strange.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Yes, I can play whole movies in my head. I can also imagine 3D objects and zoom, rotate and deform them. I was suprised to learn some people can't do this as it comes naturally to me.

    Yeah, I kind of have a non-stop movie running through my brain. My memory has the hazy, cloudy aspect to it, so that thinking of the past feels surreal.... Probably why my imagination can feel more real to me than reality at times.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I'm the same way. It's also something many top surgeons can do.
    They said it helps them greatly, while doing surgery.

    God, no. I've got a jumble of ideas going constantly, but I have to partially get something down on paper or on the computer screen, or hear it or see it, to be able to start fleshing it out in detail from there. It's all just a huge handful of worms crawling everywhere otherwise.

    And these for me too


    I think the keyword is "vivid"--it seems to be sometimes misused when describing someone with an active imagination.
