Investigating the cognitive profile of aphantasics

I am a final year undergraduate at Sussex Universtity, where my dissertation focus is on aphantasia. I have been drawn to aphantasia since I first heard the term in my second year of study, and have since found that I am on the hyperphantasic side of the imagery spectrum (i.e. my mental imagery is akin to ‘real seeing’).

Within the new and establishing literature looking into aphantasia there has been very little focus on establishing the cognitive profile of aphantasics (e.g. their personality traits, decision making, etc.) which is what I am trying to be the first to look into as an aspiring psychologist.

Please spare 10 minutes to complete my online study where you’ll be asked to complete a series of questionnaires. You will need to use your laptop or tablet to participate due to our in-house testing platform not being compatible with a phone interface. Of course, all responses are completely confidential and your data will be anonymous.

Your responses will allow us to gain a greater understanding of the fascinating field of mental imagery, and more specifically that of aphantasia. I will be sure to link my paper once completed into this thread for anyone who is curious.
