Vividness of Visual Imagery Questionnaire
You do not have a vivid imagination
While you may not have a vivid imagination, you do have the visual ability to create images in your mind so this probably means you do not have aphantasia. Regardless of how vague or dim these images may be, your mind’s eye is functioning and able to create some visual representation in certain scenarios. The majority of the population are like you, they’re phantasic with varying degrees of visual abilities, some more than others. Please note this assessment only considers the vividness of visual imagery and does not factor in other sensory imagery like sound, smell or taste. Can you create other sensory experiences in your mind?
