I find it difficult as well. If I think about an elephant, the first thing I picture is the word 'elephant' rather than an actual image of one.

I'm the exact opposite to everyone.

I work in pictures. I can't picture words- unless it is a image of a word written on a piece of paper. But I can only picture things well if I have seen them before.

So when I'm reading a book no matter what it says I may picture how a character looks or what a place will look like how ever I want, no matter how it is described in the book.

Yeh- I wouldn't be able to picture a elephant. I would be able to picture a picture of a elephant on google. :)

I'm like you robyn interesting how theres similarities and differences amonst us. A lot of dyslexic people are able to picture things if im right, so those that do maybe a crossover. If Ive explained that ok.

I understand what you mean but I'm dyslexic but I'm more dyspraxic than dyslexic so maybe that expalins why I'm not as good at picturing things
