Hmmm. I’m not sure that the author appreciates that this isn’t true for everyone - indeed, it isn’t true for a sizeable proportion of people, I understand.

Perhaps some of the random examples should be named and shamed in this thread.

This. I only learned that aphantasia was a thing a few years ago (thanks STBYM!), which led to a conversation with my SO where she realised that she has it, and was just as surprised that I could conjure up mental “images”. It was one of the more compelling bits of evidence in favour of qualia (and against universal self-help advice) that I’ve come across.
