    I have always seen 1 as white
    2 as yellow 3 as pink
    4 as orange 5 as Green
    6 as Blue
    7 as purple
    8 as an auberginey colour
    9 as red
    10 as Black.
    I have no clue why I do this i do have a photographic memory, so wonder if I am being influenced by early reading books?
    Wonder if anyone else does this!, or is it just moi'.

    This is called Synesthesia. It is when stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. It is actually a fairly common phenomena.

        Would that include associating colors with other things as well? White makes me think of bleach..Blue the ocean..Orange a sunset..ect.Almost every color brings to mind some kind of setting or emotion so just wondering:)

        Yes. It is actually real interesting the things people associate with different sense. Like some people actually do see music without being on acid.
