Thanks for this comment. It’s so easy to forget that one doesn’t know what other people’s experiences are like. Before I knew about aphantasia, I assumed that everybody’s thoughts were like mine, which I’d describe as a mixture of narrative and abstraction. These days, I often catch myself making unwarranted assumptions about how different other people’s experience must be!

Writer of (mainly short) fiction, criticism/discussion and other stuff; I discovered in my late 50s that I’m aphantasic https://www.artkavanagh.ie
