Wow! It only took me 58 years to find out I'm in the 1-3%....

I am definitely in the 1% or less after taking the test.  

 

My question to anyone reading this is… can some people who have aphantasia have it as an acquired phenomenon?

 

I ask because I remember as a child (very young) having highly graphical, visual detailed dreams and Highly graphical, visual ‘day dreams’.  Today at 58yo my dreams are void of graphical content but memorable.  Is dreaming related?  

I swear I can recall as a child being able to visualize in my ‘minds eye’ while today I cannot at all.  I cannot say this scientifically since as a child I wouldn’t have known the difference.  Today I draw a black void of nothingness. 

 

Any input would be appreciated and interesting to hear.
