How do different types/people "see" their thoughts?
I see still images and moving pieces of film, pretty much all the time. I have to make a conscious effort to black things out and even then it doesn't usually last long.
I think that I tend to take past experiences that are part of my mental/visual bank of images and sort of springboard/expand/extrapolate from that. Like whatever memory/mental image I have is where the last movie ended, and I'll start growing the next movie from that. Sometimes those images/bits of film that emerge are so vivid that it's almost like they are memories too. Perhaps why I can take things so hard when I've allowed myself to dream too much and then my dreams are shattered. It's almost like those dreams are true memories.
Often there's a sort of audio track, but it's usually someone talking...usually me...sort of inner conversations with myself or with another whose presence I imagine, I suppose.
I hear snatches of music a lot too - often I'm not sure why and then I trace it back and realise that I'd just heard a word or phrase which triggered a song lyric ---> a song.
I tend to be able to translate all this into words fairly easily. I'm (partly) a writer by trade so it doesn't tend to be too difficult. It feels almost effortless sometimes. If I'm not finding the right word or phrase I sort of poke at or play around with what I have already and then the right word/phrase will emerge. Kind of like the Orcs being born in LOTR, haha.
It's really confused but really logical at the same time. Hard to explain.
I'm curious about what the inside of others' heads look like.
