In the Autism Quotient questionnaire, there is this statement:
"When I'm reading a story, I can easily imagine what the characters might look like"
What if I always use faces that I know, for example actors from shows I've seen a lot? Sometimes I pick an actor to be a character after the first description of the character, then later they might say something about their looks that doesn't fit with the actor, and I'll kinda ignore it because I already decided who is playing that character.
To agree with the statement, should one be able to "build a face" in ones mind based on the information given?
Sometimes these things are so hard to answer when you don't know how other people work.
Personally my visual imagination is very good and I actually find it really easy to imagine what characters might look like or indeed what a scene or environment might look like, if it has been well described. This is one thing that I really like about talking with other Autistic people, their inclination to give lots of details when they are describing things, I'm 'there' in my head, I can visualise everyone/everything that they are describing really well.
