S'funny. I have no artistic aptitude to mention, and I have a tendancy to be "word-blind", though it generally only affects my own writing, and only when it is newly written. Not the classic dyslexia.
But I rely strongly on visualisation when programming. When I "see" the solution to a code problem, I can generally code it directly and, beyind typis, it usually runs first time.
When I struggle to "see" the solution, it can take me hours to code even relatively simple things.
The weirdest thing is that, if the first time I ever try to code something fairly complex but self contained, I get a strong "vision" of how it should be--and if it works. Then I never have a problem re-coding it from scratch.
Conversely, those algorithms that I struggled to see and code the first time, I always have trouble doing them again, no matter how often I have to do it.
Likewise there are some words that I struggled with as a kid, that I still struggle with every time.
