I used visualization techniques every day FOR YEARS eg guided meditations and other visualization exercises in which I had to visualize things and never become any better with my ability to visualize thou I do think many people do improve.. but it just wasnt the case for me and that certainly wasnt a lack of trying as I was working on it daily.
I nowdays dont even bother with that as for those who this just dont work for.. there is other ways around the issue.
May I inquire as to "how" (your definition) you visualize?
Through my experience with helping people, I have found that most people have an incorrect concept of what visualization is.
My definition of visualisation is when one tries to imagine something happening and then start seeing once one gets involved in the imagination eg one could be doing a guided meditation which leads one down a path.. and one is supposed to imagine this. Most people will be able to see themselves as being there when they get into the meditation. I never thou could.. even if i used the meditation regularly. I just couldnt imagine via images at all what it would be like.
I know Im a bit unusual with this as I used to actually run a meditation class and all the others I used to guide on meditations (I had 4-6 who used to come to these meditaitons) would after share all the things they saw while doing it.
I used to also go to clairvoyance classes for 3-4 years and thou everyone else there in my class (about 8-9 of us), the others would end up "seeing" images when doing readings (which we were then taught how to deciper what psychic images meant).. I hardly ever got images, it was far harder for me as I had to give my readings by whatever I innerly heard spoken to my mind, smelt, felt or just knew. I truely was the dunce of the class when it came to images....I can only connect that problem I had to the fact I also have issue with visualization.
So from my experience I think that "most" people are visual.. but some of us just arent.
In RL Ive havent got much ability to recognise peoples faces either, a mild form of a medical conditon called prosopagnosia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prosopagnosia.. once I didnt even recognise my own brother in law at my door even after we'd been speaking for 5mins (with me trying to work out who he was the whole time).. I think that too is tied in with my inability to "imagine" via an image/visualisation of someones face.. once again evidence that I really struggle with visualisation..
