I’ve noticed a lot of people have a difficult time to understand what it’s like to have aphantasia, which is something I have. Aphantasia is essentially the inability to voluntarily create images in your mind.
You can still make out some very vague images and have aphantasia. It’s as much as a spectrum as anything else.
I personally don’t have any images. No colours, no shapes, no memories. I can’t even recall images from my dreams and sometimes I end up wondering if I just don’t dream at all.
So I’ll let you in on a secret.
