Here's a new one for the Disadvantage list, along with Innumerate, Illiterate, and Non-Iconographic: aphantasia, the inability to picture things in one's mind. Sufferers can react to images just fine -- they can recognize faces, for example, and identify colors. They just can't picture anything; brain scans show certain regions lack activity during attempts at visualization exercises.
