Pictionary fun

I am always fascinated with the different ways in which different people think about and visualize different words, objects, concepts, etc. I always wonder how much of that is background influenced, culturally influenced, gender influenced or even present environment influenced. It was interesting to me to see how easy some of the concepts were to decipher, given the illustrations presented by the people drawing, while others were very difficult. I also noticed that some of my classmates had the opposite experience to mine. The illustrations that I thought were fairly easy to decipher were not necessarily the ones that they felt the same way about. I think it would be interesting to come up with a way to describe the way people think about or visualize different concepts across different disciplines as well, for example Architects versus Biologists or so, and see if any kind of a unifying theme of thought processes exists.
