    Hey, so I cannot visualize things in my head.

    Learned this about a week ago. I was wondering if this is nonsense.

    Can any of y'all visualize things in your head?

    Yeah that was a light bulb moment for me. That, and why I hated fantasy novels growing up.

    It's calm, that's why movies exist.

    My sis has the whole collection and is a big fan. I got sick of it after chapter 2 of the first book. I enjoyed the movies though.

    :damnmusic:That sounds really interesting, never heard of it. Let's say if you were to draw something for an art class, would you just improvise or do you have any (detailed or otherwise) notion of the end result? I guess what I would like to understand is what type of imagination/visualisation are you unable to produce?

    Like straight up images.

    As for drawing, I wasn't great at art from the dome. But art through tracing, I was pretty good at. Essentially, if I had the object in front of me, I can draw it. But if I was told to draw something from my mind, it'd end up being basic, since the drawing would be based on simplistic concepts of the thing.

    Like an apple. It'd be a circular shape. A stem on top. A leaf hanging from the stem. That's it.

    And do you feel it limits your creativity in everyday situations in any way or do you more or less navigate through your day without you even noticing it, if you don't focus on it?
    I honestly can't grasp the extent to which it would affect my day, since I'm on the other end of the spectrum and more often than not I can't shut down the nagging daydreaming etc.

    Yes I have. I was fairly religious in high school, and prayed 5 times a day consistently.

    No. Since I've learned of this, I didn't think I was weird, as I simply thought no one could picture things. So, nothing in my life changed to be honest.
