 Abstract: May (2004) suggested that the difficulty of imagined perspective switches is partially caused by interference between the sensorimotor (actual) and to-be-imagined orientation. Here, we demonstrate a similar interference, even if participants are in a remote room and don’t know their physical orientation with respect to the to-be-imagined orientation. Participants learned 15 target objects located in an office from one orientation (0°, 120°, or 240°). Participants were blindfolded and disoriented before being wheeled to an empty test room of similar geometry. Participants were seated facing 0, 120°, or 240°, and asked to perform judgments of relative direction (e.g., imagine facing “pen”, point to “phone”). Performance was facilitated when participants’ to-be-imagined orientation in the learning room was aligned with the corresponding orientation in the test room. This suggests that merely being in an empty room of similar geometry can be sufficient to automatically re-anchor one’s representation and thus produce orientation-specific interference.
