Purely verbal. I have aphantasia, which means I see no mental images at all. My thought processes are all in the form of a silent verbal dialogue with myself.

Verbally. All of my jobs have used the written word in some capacity.

Could be any except verbal.

Most of my thinking processes do not have much available vocabularies for and I suck at summaries -- assigning vocabularies or descriptions for it takes more processing and even more work to make it coherent or made any sense to any readers.




Visual, auditory/patterns, proprioception/kinesthethic/spatial, 'emotional'/introspection, lateral/literal, 'numerical' (in which the known numbers are like verbal/visual/auditory and the quantity along with other functions behind it is more spatial/patterns), 'spiritual' (or it could be anything I cannot name or have any words to describe yet -- it is in a sense that looked like emotional/moral -- except it's not, more it slides to intuitive/unconscious)...
Even... Non-visual/non-auditory and anything else but verbal.

Sometimes impulsively/angrily/frustratingly/maliciously/selfishly/blindly, sometimes intuitively/rationally/direct/colorfully/etc... Sometimes complete opposite of any of these, that includes contradictory.

With all my senses. But not in patterns.

My memories are tied to visual things, namely a road near where I grew up, I'm struggling to explain it but all my memories have a visual quality that is tied to childhood memories of a road.

I think by recalling sensory imprints. I also see swirling colours like a kaleidoscope, which connect me to other associations using synaesthesia. I have very few "normal" episodic memories, just sensory flashbacks.

My mind is like a movie theater -- replaying my memories, thinking about the future, solving problems, etc. Every night as I lay down to sleep, I submerge myself into visual movie like situations. I even navigate my favorite house plans and ride historic wooden roller coasters or other rides in movie like ways.

I think in pictures. All the drawings and paintings that I do in a year is strong evidence of that.

My current thoughts are verbal - a running commentary.

My memories tend to be a series of visual images.
