metacognition

Talking with a dear friend a couple of days ago, we had an exchange that’s still got me chuckling.

HIM: Can you believe there are people who don’t think in words? They think in pictures or … something?

ME: I don’t think in words.

HIM: What?! How?!

ME: You realize you are asking someone who does not think in words to represent in words how they don’t think in words?

HIM: Mmmmm. Point taken.

For me, this picture from a London alley represents how I think; the closest words I have are “spatially” and “relationally.”
