    I think in sort of an abstract visual sense, but it's not really pictures even. Terms or the words used to describe things seem almost irrelevant. Even when I'm writing I don't really think of words. They play out in my head, but that happens with whatever I'm dealing with. My mind is like an endless simulation of what ifs.

    I'm very visual. Pictures, visual impressions, tangible moods and vibes that have a visual component I can "touch" with my mind.

    I think in pictures and images, and then translate into words. Sometimes I have a feeling or colour associated with objects (and, yes, some times concepts). It's the images with emotion that I've found hardest to express.
    Some thoughts I hear though.
    I wonder if I use Ni quite alot, though traditionally INFP use Ne. Mainly because I'm very good at analysing things and making random connections.
    I like diagrams, and pictures. When I was younger, I had a near photographic memory for any diagram or picture that came my way. Not so much for text though. Shame, I could hand in diagrams instead of assays, LOL.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    I pretty much only think in words...I can't really think of a time where I wasn't thinking in words. When I see pictures/images, it's either when I'm trying to remember something, or if I'm using my imagination.

    The interesting thing that I've found is that my head time is a helluva lot faster than real time. It's like two different dimensions. In head time, I can completely listen to an amazing 9 minute song (from memory) and somehow it's decompressed into only like 3 minutes spent in LaLa Land..

    Si = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Ni = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Se = 11[][][][][][][][][][][]
    Fe = 0

    Double this. I'm a highly visual thinker, and sometimes there's a disconnection between the ideas I've written down versus the ones fabricated inside my head. It's easier to think in words once I could pinpoint the most suitable thought for that given moment. For me, visualizing imagery (often based on subjective interpretations) is a longer, yet more memorable process, while the written language, an 'objective' format, is a greater tool for improving execution speed and accuracy.

    Thinking in word-form would definitely be the most frequent. But it is not uncommon for me to also think in numerical form if I'm thinking about mathematics or money.

    Likewise, I also frequently think in both image and audio if it's appropriate to the subject, but seldom unaccompanied by words in some way or narrative.

    A common example of this is when I'm playing out scenarios for possible outcomes. I'll envision the whole thing, but my observations take the form of words while the scenario is in progress.

    ... After seeing it written out like that, perhaps I think too much.

    Thinking in words? Would that be visually thinking words that are read from the mind or talking to yourself in the mind? Either way I usually don't do either. Everything is visualised like simulations of possibilities playing in my mind. I've lived most of my life in my mind. It would all turn quite boring if was changed into words.
