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.
