VVIQ, the Vividness of Visual Imagery Quiz, measures the vividness of your visual imagination. VVIQ is proven to be an accurate test of the vividness for which you can imagine people, objects, or settings in your mind. It is the go-to psychometric for researchers studying extreme imagination, and is often used to identify aphantasia.
This “aphantasia quiz” consists of four scenarios and asks you to rank how vividly you can picture them in your mind on a scale of one to five. Each scenario asks you to imagine the face of a loved one, the image of your favourite shop, or a beautiful landscape — and to rate the vividness of the details within each scene.
Since VVIQ was first developed in 1973 by British psychologist David Marks, it has been referenced in over 1200 studies of mental imagery and been given considerable attention in the domains of psychology, philosophy, and more recently, cognitive neuroscience.
