I have that sometimes, but it depends what it is. Some things I can imagine with over the top vividness, others I can't imagine at all.

I have the same problem as well. A lot of dyspraxics do not have the ability to think in pictures (so can't really picture things in their minds)-it's just not how our minds work although I know there are some exceptions.

Faces is a weird one with me. I can recognise people when they are in the situations I expect them to be in such as a colleague in work but, if I see them in the supermarket, I walk straight past them not recognising them. I am also very poor at describing how people look when they are not in front of me-I have been known to describe people as short with blonde hair when they are in fact tall with brown hair.

I can't pictures things, nor do I reconginse people outside a siutation, however I can easily make up stories so i guess i have an imagination
