    Yes often but if you would translate head to real world 1:1 it would be more a huge mixture of words, pictures, sounds and numbers in my head for me.

    That's why I have difficulties speaking in general and I am always mixing words and things up. Only intense focus on the words I want to say, meaning formulating the sentences in your head in advance, or taking time before you answer does help me to speak clearly.

    Nevertheless conveying to others what I think about certain things, never really works 100%. I like to let my work speak for itself.

    Nope. But I sometimes talk out loud to myself.

    I don't speak to myself inside my head. I visualise more.

    can you describe it? is it slow or fast? are the thoughts easily interupted by outside noise? etc.
    i heard an enlgish teacher say how he thinks at least 1000 words a second or minute or something. that's probably a very typical type of thinking for an enlgish teacher, you know, verbal and auditory. those guys never do shut up.

    i think in vivid unsequenced movies, kinda. very, very visual, unstructured and wholisitic. i sense mathematical relationships between things. i don't use words. i struggle to turn my thoughts into words. it's a very slow kind of thinking that is interupted by talking and other noises.

    i wouldn't say it's type related at all. i don't see the connection.

    Yes, I speak to myself heaps, both internally and externally.

    Yes, you do!

    Really?
