- Imagination, also called the faculty of imagining, is the creative ability to form images, ideas, and sensations in the mind without direct input from the senses, such as seeing or hearing
- Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience and the learning process
- A basic training for imagination is listening to storytelling (narrative), in which the exactness of the chosen words is the fundamental factor to "evoke worlds"
- It is accepted as the innate ability and process of inventing partial or complete personal realms within the mind from elements derived from sense perceptions of the shared world
- The term is technically used in psychology for the process of reviving in the mind, percepts of objects formerly given in sense perception
- Since this use of the term conflicts with that of ordinary language, some psychologists have preferred to describe this process as "imaging" or "imagery" or to speak of it as "reproductive" as opposed to "productive" or "constructive" imagination
- Imagined images are seen with the "mind's eye"
- Imagination can also be expressed through stories such as fairy tales or fantasies
- Children often use such narratives and pretend play in order to exercise their imaginations
- When children develop fantasy they play at two levels: first, they use role playing to act out what they have developed with their imagination, and at the second level they play again with their make-believe situation by acting as if what they have developed is an actual reality
