Default Do you know what...

Do you know what synesthesia is before you came here? I bet you didn't! I know what it is, and after you vote please see the spoiler below!!!

Spoiler: show
Synesthesia (also spelled synæsthesia or synaesthesia, plural synesthesiae or synaesthesiae)—from the Ancient Greek σύν (syn), "together," and αἴσθησις (aisthēsis), "sensation"—is a neurologically based phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. [1][2][3][4] People who report such experiences are known as synesthetes.
In one common form of synesthesia, known as grapheme → color synesthesia or color-graphemic synesthesia, letters or numbers are perceived as inherently colored,[5][6] while in ordinal linguistic personification, numbers, days of the week and months of the year evoke personalities.[7][8] In spatial-sequence, or number form synesthesia, numbers, months of the year, and/or days of the week elicit precise locations in space (for example, 1980 may be "farther away" than 1990), or may have a (three-dimensional) view of a year as a map (clockwise or counterclockwise).[9][10][11] Yet another recently identified type, visual motion → sound synesthesia, involves hearing sounds in response to visual motion and flicker.[12] Over 60 types of synesthesia have been reported by people,[13] but only a fraction have been evaluated by scientific research.[14] Even within one type, synesthetic perceptions vary in intensity [15] and people vary in awareness of their synesthetic perceptions.[16]


~Wikipedia.org



I really do think this is interesting, and I hope to make more people aware of this. Please vote, and read the full article on Wikipedia!

Also, a book that might be in your school's library is called A Mango-Shaped Space. Please check that out too! (no pun intended)

After a little research I found out I am a synesthete. I can hear motion. It is associated, meaning I hear it in my head. It is really cool!

I've read that book before! That's how I knew what it was.

Everyone may be a have a bit of synesthesia, you might just have to think about it. Try letters or numbers, think of the number 1, if it had a colour, what colour would it be?

I think a number 1 would be red, but that's just me. LOL I should make a poll about it.

OMG! I'm listening to a Synthesia music thingy right now! I even have the game on my computer, and-- *checks spoiler* oh. SynESthesia. Oops. Okay, nevermind, I didn't know what that was.

Lil' edit- I'm not sure if I'm a synesthetic or not... however, I do associate certain feelings to numbers, if that counts... like, 10:59 looks like it's scared, 10:10 looks like it's happy, 10:58 looks kinda like "oooh, what's gonna happen?", and 10:45 looks kinda like "well, then. *hmmph*"
... yeah, I'm weird. Colors for numbers, though...? Never thought about that. *goes to assign colors to numbers*
