Aphantasia is a condition where people cannot imagine. The person cannot make mental images.
So, since I can’t find a proper test for aphantasia, I don’t know if I have it. But, if I close my eyes, all I see is black. And if I try hard, there is only black noise. I asked other people, and they told they can imagine an apple tree and appreciate it’s color.
So, is aphantasia the reason I’m having trouble remembering my memory palaces. I often forget routes in real life. I forget faces and names so often that it’s embarrassing. But, I do know the route to my home and can identify my friends and family.
So, does anyone else with aphantasia have trouble with memory palaces? Is there a way to train your brain to overcome this?
