this is an odd question but a recent article discussed on Radio Lad got me wondering, if for most hearing people thinking is like verbal talking in your head (according to the report though I think in pictures as much as words) how do deaf people think? is it in sign language, or like a text message to your self? it is just kind of intriguing to me having hearing. I am sorry if this sounds a bit strange to ask and I mean no offense, I am just curious. is there a normative thinking experience among the deaf? if not, what is it like for you personally?
