Vividness of Visual Imagery Questionnaire

  • Your VVIQ results: Phantasic

You have a vivid imagination

If you are able to imagine different scenario(s) in your mind regardless of how clear or dim those images are, this probably means you do not have aphantasia. Phantasia, or the ability to imagine, is a spectrum and the majority of people will be somewhere in the middle. Regardless of where you are on the spectrum, if you possess the ability to visualize in your mind you can improve this capability with practise.

Please note this assessment only considers the vividness of your visual imagery capabilities, and does not consider other sensory imagery (auditory, olfactory, etc). People with aphantasia cannot experience sound, smell, taste, or any other senses in their mind’s eye. Can you?
