    Default NTPs and understanding things thru pictures

    I'm just wondering if this is a part of Ne, but when you think of concepts, does it have a visual imprint in your mind?

    For example, let's consider a somewhat complex thought:

    capitalism versus socialism

    When I think of something like that, I think of two armies, where one is represented by the business class, the other, represented by the state (government), and they battle on Middle Earth or something.

    Not necessarily that I want to put LOTR universe in the mix, but it just gives me a somewhat surreal picture of the two ruling entities that clash.

    ___________

    Anyway, I think that for most of the things that get stuck in my long term memory, they need to have some sort of a visual (if not other sensory) imprint in me, otherwise, sheer textual information can easily be forgotten.

    Another example:

    1 mile = 1.6 kilometers -------> forgettable
    1 mile = roughly from my house (point A) to a certain mall (Point B) -------> easily remembered.

    Sorry, I'm more of an intuitive concept getter, and a word-thinker to boot.

    Yeah, I do.

    As an example:

    Capitalism
    (Buildings of different sizes)


    vs.


    Socialism
    (Buildings all pretty much the same size)


    And here's somebody who loves capitalism:



    And here's somebody who loves socialism:



    When capitalism and socialism fight:



    That's how it goes in my mind.

    The end.

    Yes very much so ... I see different concepts clearly in visuals, and this explains my quick grasp of complex concepts

    INTP bf loves conceptual art. He can sit for hours. However, once in a while, a boob flashes by.

    What is up with all the LOTR references? It is so ironic.

    Anyways, yes. Mind mind is a little movie theater. I display thoughts in pics too!

    I never think in images, I even have problems navigating thru places I been to a million times. The words capitalism and socialism invoke the sentence in my head "oh god I hate it when people use the word socialism instead of communism to prove a point about political systems"

    But no images at all. I am tho good at setting anchoring points in the visual world. If I for example drive down a road I only have driven down once, I remember crucial points, like a sign, a house, a tree; this so often gets very mixed up and distorted in my head so it's no wonder I will drive to San Francicsco when I wanted to go to New York.

    Navigation Computer ftw !

    When I'm having a conversation and someone says something, I visualize it in a literal form and erupt into laughter. But mostly no, I don't remember in pictures consistently - sometimes yes and sometimes no.

    As I believe I've said in several posts before, I do have a "visual" mind. However, it's not anything near a photographic memory. The basis of it is more along the lines of using the essential essence of something, which isn't always the essence as much as it could be something associated with the object for whatever reason. (One connection that entered my mind when I was learning multiplication was that the number 8 meant fire, 7 meant trees, and 56 meant raging forest fire. It makes complete sense in the back of my mind. 3 represents water in general, 5 represents wind, and 4, the average of the two, represents rain.)

    And while I do think in images, I don't feel it's quite as the OP described, although it's rather similar.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
