Curiosity about modes

Story research, sort of, and sort of personal curiosity. Define terms for yourself, but if you think you're defining them idiosyncratically, please let me know. Nuance in the comments! Nuance in the comments is always welcome. (The first two questions may not be entirely clear. Basically I think there's a huge difference between being a very visual person and having good eyesight, that kind of thing. Also, you define what senses you feel you mess with in your art or craft. If you write poetry and experience that as a "hearing" art or a "sight" art or a "hearing and sight" art, whatever: put down your perception of it. Thanks.)
