It's amazing how we all have different ways of thinking visually.so much for any commonality.

That sounds like synesthesia? I learnt that there is extremely many ways of that. Many aspies also has synesthesia, but not everyone.Question here, Aspies are not imaginative or creative? Seriously? I kinda imagine numbers as blocks, Like 9 is a bigger block than 7 or 5. And it all just gets on or off like tetris.
^^^^^ that's part if it for me. What you describe is exactly the backdrop for or rather, a way to pull together my scattered, sometimes abstract sometimes realistic (depending on if I've witnessed a thing), pictures or color when I'm reading or listening to someone speaking. It's realistic pictures (sometimes in motion but not in continuous motion, just snippets) and actual word sounds when it's my own thoughts and conversations in my own head.it kinda feels like a mix of both for me? i dont really know how to describe it : oP personally i never understand when people ask about thinking in pictures or words because i never know if they mean seeing or hearing words when they think lol
the way im gonna go with to describe it is that i usually think in loose concepts and emotions. when i think of something, it's usually just the way it feels to me. this happens with a lot of my memories, too--i can think of a vague image for some, but mostly it's just how i feel about it or felt then......
I like to read do it compulsively am also a strong visual thinker so they are not mutually incompatible. I do not talk much, but when I do people mistake me for an extrovert I keep my mouth shut unless the conversation is worth contributing too.I think I predominantly think visually, I am a visual style thinker.
So I often am someone who is very close to the visual world and very affected by the visual.
I notice details, colours, beauty.
But I love reading
But despite this I do not always think I am good with verbal.
I struggle many ways verbal and I may burn out and go non verbal at times
But reading may help me be more verbal
