Imagery may be defined as a picture seen in one's mind. It is the ability to create pictures, to hear sounds, to smell odors, to taste, and to feel in one's mind as one reads. All these factors contribute to the varying degrees of mental imagery possessed by different individuals. It may be assumed that people visualize when they read. A writer may give a description of a person or a place, and the reader can recreate the scene in his own mind. The reader's picture may be clear or it may be vague. However, since every individual is different the same sentence or paragraph may appear differently to the subjects being tested. [TRUNCATED]
