San Francisco is beautiful. If there weather were better, I'd prefer to live there.

I'm up there every once in a great while. Maybe you can meet my wife and I for coffee some time.

Hahaha I feel the same way about LA. I love the weather here because the sun is an evil ball of fire the burns my skin =D

And yes please, I'd love to pick each others brains about all this! Does your wife visualize things? That would be a fantastic perspective to have in the chat too.

My wife does not have aphantasia. She devours fiction books, and has a movie playing in head while she reads.

Sweet, I look forward to meeting you both someday!

I devour sci fi books voraciously... but I tend to skip over descriptive parts for obvious reasons. I still enjoy them, but I guess in a different way. Sounds like a topic I'd love to discuss when we meet =D

Do you enjoy reading a lot too?

I tend to read more non-fiction. I love learning new things, so that keeps my interest more than fiction. I do read some fiction, and I also breeze through the visual details. The last series that I read was Old Man's War by John Scalzi. It had some really awesome technology and a fun story.

I too am also fair skinned and easily burnt. :P (Nice avatar photo btw. :) Blue-i-ness :)
~*~ Still figuring it all out, I either have aphantasia or weak visualization ability, definitely 0 purposeful visualization. ~*~
~*~ I suffer from PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, OCD; and potentially some sort of high functioning autism, but that one is unconfirmed. ~*~
