You can’t use aphantasia as an excuse, says former Pixel president

Ed [Catmull, former Pixar president] argues aphantasia is not a barrier to success.

He told the BBC: “I think the main message is, ‘OK folks you can’t use it as an excuse, you can still do good work, regardless of your differences‘.“

This is timely for me. I keep slipping back to thinking of aphantasia is in itself an impairment of executive function. This is a notion I need to resist.
