Some people’s imagery is largely nonvisual: visceral or emotional or kinesthetic or something else.

What does visceral mean?

In this case, I think it refers to the fact that some people's nonvisual "imagery" comes in the form of a gut feeling or reaction, a base sensation that is hard to articulate with words.


It means "instinctive", and relates to someone's deep-down feelings.
