Can you see images vividly in your head?

So Aphantasia is a thing, can you see images clearly in your head when you close your eyes?.
I only see darkness with a little bit of blur, I really wonder what it's like to see images clearly when you close your eyes.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • You mean what I literally see? I see blackness. What I see in my head? It's like watching a movie to me.

  • Very vivid, but I don't have to close my eyes

  • When I close my eyes, all I see is the inside of my eyelids. My mental images, though? None of them are particularly clear, I'm not a great artist, but they're vivid enough to be quite fun at night and in the morning. I've been told that I look "really happy" when I'm asleep.

    ...My dreams tend to be surprisingly innocent, despite that description.

  • When I close my eyes and think about nothing, I see blackness and random sparkles.

    But if I think about a memory, especially an emotional memory - I see it as clear as day. Every detail, captured in 360 degrees. I even remember what I was wearing, so I could remember getting a present for Christmas, as if the whole thing was filmed from the side.
    My parents hand me a present, I grin and open it and it's all happening from a 3rd person view. Or I can remember that same memory from my perspective - aka what I see.

    It's a bit weird to explain, but I'm really good at 3D memorization and navigation. When I'm going/ driving somewhere, I literally have a "google maps" view in my head.

  • I can make up anything in my mind picture wise. When I close my eyes it’s a combination of moving blocks/ random shapes of color and sparkles.

    I didn’t realize people couldn’t picture things in their mind. Sounds peaceful but boring.

  • For me, the central focus of what I'm imagining is pretty clear but everything else isn't. For example, if I close my eyes and imagine an street race, I can picture the cars pretty clearly but when it comes to background details like buildings, streetlights, pedestrians, etc. they're all kind of a murky blur where I can tell what they are but can't discern specific details
