Is there a word for a person with aphantasia? I haven’t found one online so far.

Hello Anika, we use “aphantasic” to describe people with aphantasia. We have seen “aphantasiac” and even “aphantastic” used to describe people with aphantasia but generally, aphantasic is the most widely accepted term.

The short-form “aphants” is also used interchangeably.
