I have been having a 'conversation' in a comment box, with a hubber today, and mentioned that I have synesthesia! for any of you that don't know what it is, and I don't blame you!, it is pretty rare! what it means is that I 'think' in colour. the old, Monday is blue, tuesday is yellow kind of thing, it is something to do with how the brain is wired. some people, when they hear music, 'see' the notes in colour. or as in my case, I see colours in words and letters, for example, N is blue, S is red, W is always green for some reason! Anybody else? I also discovered that my brother was the same! we always thought it was normal! lol any more of you out there?
Yes Nell, I have synesthesia too. My brain says that "Monday" is brown, while "Tuesday" is pink! It's an interesting phenomenon. I never thought how strange synesthesia was when I was a child, but now I know a little more about it.
A couple of my children say that they have this too. My daughter in particular says that certain letters were always certain colors when she was learning to read. I think in her case it has diminished to some degree.
The people I have heard about who had this were creative people, some known poets (not totally famous), for example; Mozart almost certainly did.
