Ranger April 20, 2022 Share April 20, 2022 (edited) This is something that's been bothering me about visualization- I strongly suspect our mindset on how to visualize is really limited. I'm curious how you guys approach how to visualize things. Spoiler While thinking about something else, I realized our ideas for how to improve your visualization ability boil down to "think about it more". Having trouble imagining a chair? Think about what a chair is made of, the shape of the back, and what it tastes like if you're feeling adventurous. This approach isn't dependent on the object you're visualizing, nor does it matter how you break up the visualization task. While this approach is very flexible and useful, it feels very limited, one-wayish. I refuse to believe there's only one way to imagine something. I'm aware of a few other approaches, but there's only one I can think of that really counts. I suppose visualizing by staring at noise could be visualization, but I think that's really imposition/hallucinating things and not really seeing it with your mind's eye. I think the Tetris effect is better because that does create visuals in your mind, but you are dependent on an external source like a videogame to help you and I'm more interested in how people can imagine things on their own.
