The inner flow of thought. Imagination can be verbal, associated with the left hemisphere, or visual, connected with the right hemisphere. The three composite styles are responsible for generating imagination. Exhorter thought, the first stage, comes up with ideas, pictures, words, and drive. Contributor mode, the second stage, combines these elements to produce an internal ‘movie' of plans and situations. Facilitator strategy, the third stage, fills in the gaps of this internal ‘movie' and makes it smooth and realistic.
