I've noticed something about myself. So, I am quite a visually minded person. I can often recall something visually via a detailed mental picture in my head so long as I am familiar enough with it. Also, I can easily imagine other stimulus such as sounds, smells and how a texture feels. The weird part is that this is not true when it comes to the sound of a person's voice. In fact, in my dreams I tend to focus on my own internal thoughts within the dream. When I talk to someone else, it's usually someone I don't know talking to me about people I do know. In dreams during situations where I talk to people I know the voice can sound vaguely like them...similar speech patterns such as a rise and fall in their voice. However, there is frequently a monotone element to the majority of people I talk to even though I know they do not speak like this in real life. I actually can't recall my mother's voice even though I talk to her regularly. Despite the fact I would know it if I heard it. Yet I can't conjure it. I can see her face in exact detail in my mind...but I can't conjure her voice. I can imagine what she might say to me, and remember conversations with her but they're in the same monotone most of the voices I imagine are. Never given this much thought before, but now that I have it does seem a little odd. Anyone else like this? Can you recall voices on demand? I can with a few to a very small degree, but I seem to struggle with it. Yet other sounds, such as the sound of the sea crashing against rocks, seagulls, a dog barking or wind-chimes I can easily imagine.
