    I think using pictures in my head.

    But from time to time by putting some effort in to it I think using words.

    I've noticed thinking in words produce better, much controlled, rational, calmer results.

    I think I think in words and pictures. When I'm thinking of what could happen or just random stories that I made up in my head, my thoughts are like a movie.

    My head is like 1000 people with ADHD who are on XTC, locked up in a tiny little cage, just jumping around and fighting each other. My thinking style is way to hyperactive, versatile and aggressive to describe in a different way. Sometimes I think in words, sometimes I think in conversations, sometimes I think in movies, sometimes in pictures, sometimes in music and sometimes my mind is just a big bunch of "WHAAAAAAA!!! *bounce* *bounce* WHEEEEEEY!!! *bounce* *bump up to something* *vase falling on the floor, breaking* OH NOOOOOOOO!!! LET'S GET OUT OF HEEEEEERE!!! *vroom vroom* WHAAAAAAAAAAA!!!".
    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."

    I think mostly in vague generalizations. It's essentially just "Things" and movement. I imagine moving chunks of things and so on. When solving problems etc that need more precision I'll go to a mental map which is the same although with images(includes written words/numbers) added. When thinking about people/communication etc I go the last step and add audible words.

    I mainly visualize scenes, but sometimes my mind associates flashes of colors with whatever is going on in/out of my mind.

    I'm very much a visual thinker but I do sometimes think in words in addition. Words tend to be a very poor imitation of visual thinking though. So so limited IME.

    I definitely think in words, I basically have a constant monolog/dialog running through my head. Either compositions or stories (that I wish I'd start writing down), or imaginary conversations.
