    Regularly my friends will hear something and say eew gross I didn't need that mental image or I'm picturing it now, I mean I can picture things in my head but I have to consciously choose to. If someone describes something to me, I just hear words, is that normal?

    It's not weird. I think people say it more as a figure of speech. Most people use that phrase to express disgust, it doesn't mean they're literally picturing the scenario.
