Visual Memory & Auditory Memory

I was curious as to how many visual thinkers there out there? If there are any who are willing to share their information on this post, I am curious as to whether you have always been a visual thinker or whether this was something you developed? Visual thinking seems to be one of the better ways to process information.

The funny thing is that I don't really think in this style much, so it is hard for me to use memory strategies that rely on visual thinking patterns. I have been reading Moonwalking with Einstein, and it seems that if you are a visual thinker, you have a lot of potential in many areas of study not just memory. If anyone is willing to share whether they had another predominate way of processing information and then learned to develop visual thinking strategies, I would love to hear about your experiences. For someone who doesn't learn in this manner, can this be developed? If so does anyone know about any good books that emphasize a new way of taking in information? If not, do you just accept that the way you learn is the way you learn?
