This whole, some people think in images/concepts while others think in words has my imagination going wild over how this changes the abilities of mind readers. Like, just think about it, people aren’t able to understand the other way of thinking that’s not their own, but there’s no way that one type could be translated into the other. It’s literally a language barrier and a mind reader would end up reading the minds of people that think in a different way than them. How would they react? A person who thinks in words would end up being hit with a bunch of images that they’d have to learn how to interpret, which is incredible cause that means that no matter what language the other person spoke, a mind reader could understand them as long as they could interpret their thoughts. And what about the other way around? A mind reader that thinks in images reading the mind a person who thinks in words and being lost in what they’re actually thinking about cause it’s fragments of sentences not given any context.
There’s a whole new creative avenue to go down with this new knowledge and I will not be satisfied until there is a show about a mind reader who becomes an expert on people because they’re multilingual in thoughts.
