Interesting about the pair dancing. I was never any good at learning dance steps and I assumed that I just wasn’t trying hard enough. But it’s been years since I even tried, so I didn’t associate it with aphantasia till I read your comment.

My auditory imagination is quite strong. When I was younger, I used to have a reputation for having particularly sharp ears — as you say, overhearing a conversation two rooms away. I think I’m good at recognizing voices, much more so than faces.

Thanks for commenting; I look forward to reading more about your experiences.
