Fear or joy towards mental images?


Aphantasic, or anyone.

Do you enjoy having mental images?

Or are they overwhelming?

Can you control your mental images or are they a controlling nuisance?

I am curious what people think of their ability or their lack of ability to create mental images.

I have aphantasia, and I recently found out. I was pretty surprised because I thought I had a very vivid imagination and I was a bit disappointed, but I love randomely asking people to picture an apple and seeing what happens. Honestly I can’t imagine being able to imagine things in my head and to actually see them, and it’s a really interesting topic to discuss with others.
