A model of thinking style, based on whether a person thinks in pictures or does not think in pictures, was proposed. Right cerebral dominance and a deductive mode of reasoning were associated with the visualizing style, while left cerebral dominance and an inductive mode of reasoning were associated with the nonvisualizing style. Converging lines of evidence (anecdotal, historical, and empirical) were offered in support of the model.
