Recent evidence from the areas of both verbal and visual mediation suggests that qualitative differences exist among mediators. Subjects in this study were asked to generate and describe visual images of common or bizarre interactions for noun pairs that were then judged on the type and number of operations used to form the visual images. Bizarre imagery instructions resulted in images that were generated by the use of significantly more operations and a greater variety of operation combinations than images formed under common imagery instructions.
