Do you think in words? In images? In sensations?

I think in images, sensations and emotions. It makes translating to English complicated at times because finding just the right word to fit my thoughts can be difficult. That's why I go non-verbal although it doesn't happen too often and I find I can still manage to type at least rudimentarily even if I can't verbalize.

Generally I think in words. But when I dream, I dream in words, or static photographs or moving pictures or a combination of these. I do not think in terms of feeling emotions.

One big visually synaesthetic mess.

Erratically.

Pictures, words, exploded views, webs, trails, tangents and black holes.

I think entirely in words. I see no mental images (in fact I have no conception even of what "mental images" are), and so all my thinking is done by conducting a silent mental dialogue with myself.

Same here. I was born with a rare low vision disorder & on top of that I also have that disorder that involves face blindness

I tend to think in all modalities.

I can imagine making love with a woman.

I can imagine the SENSATION of making love with a woman.

But I also think in words, too.
