If somebody asked you to pick a number from 1 to 10, do you visualize anything (assuming that you don't pick on a whim, rather you think about it for a while)? For example, if somebody asks me to pick a number, I (subconsciously) visualize a number line, going from 1, 2, 3,... 9, 10, then I choose a number from that number line. Is this what everybody visualizes (again, not on a whim which you just spit out a number, but if your survival depended on choosing a certain number), or do some people visualize a number-pad (right side of your keyboard) or maybe visualize backwards, 10, 9, … 2, 1?

PS: This is for an important project, please answer after thinking through.
