Some claim that some people think in words, while others claim to think in images. But we underestimate how mysterious our brain workings are. 

According to Temple Grandin, who wrote the popular book “Visual Thinking: The Hidden Gifts of People Who Think in Pictures, Patterns, and Abstractions,” her mind is constantly flooded with precise images that she can juxtapose. Grandin, who is on the autism spectrum, came to prominence in 1995, when she published “Thinking in Pictures,” Grandin claimed that there are two types of thinkers: verbal and visual, the concept is subtly revised in “Visual Thinking,” which identifies a continuum of thought styles that can be loosely divided into three categories. Verbal thinkers, frequently approach a topic by discussing it in their brains or, more generally, by moving along the linear, symbolic path typical of language.
