    This is really interesting. I don't think I'm a synaesthete, but there are sounds and numbers which are intimately associated with certain shapes and colors. The numbers of the enneagram for example:

    1: White
    2: Lighter shade of red
    3: Light blue
    4: Deep purple
    5: A sort of brown, reminiscent of rust
    6: Silver
    7: Pink
    8: Crimson
    9: Green

    And combinations:

    1w9: White/green
    1w2: White/red
    2w1: Red/white
    2w3: Red/blue
    3w2: Blue/red
    3w4: Blue/yellow
    4w3: Deep blue
    4w5: Purple/yellow
    5w4: Pale and matte shade of yellow
    5w6: "Rusty" brown
    6w5: Brown
    6w7: Gray/pink
    7w6: Pink
    7w8: Red
    8w7: Crimson with gold linings
    8w9: Red/green
    9w8: Green/red
    9w1: Green/white

    I only have strong associations for some letters:

    A -- bright red or reddish purple
    B -- dark blue or violet
    C -- yellow
    D -- purple or pink
    E -- MUST be green
    F -- MUST be light-ish blue
    G -- pink or orange
    H -- brown
    I -- white or silver
    J -- red or purple
    K -- orange
    L -- very pale green or yellow
    M -- any color that belongs in the night sky
    N -- murky pastel pink or purple or blue
    O -- (no impression)
    P -- orange
    Q -- orange or brown
    R -- white or purple
    S -- red and sharp
    T -- boring metal color
    U -- grey
    V -- 'bright and shiny'
    W -- brown or orange
    X -- metallic silver
    Y -- some sort of green or grey
    Z -- patterned


    My culture color-codes days of the week (according to the corresponding planets and star), so I was shocked when I learned that the rest of the world didn't think the same way

    Default Synesthesia

    So, last night, I was thinking about how I had different color associations to each number and letter, and I remembered something called synesthesia. I posted about it on the random thought thread and found out that I probably have it. I have one of the more common forms, which is grapheme-color synesthesia. This form of synesthesia means that when I think of numbers, letters, or words in my head (I don't see the colors imprinted on the external world though, that's for more prominent cases), I have a color associated with each of them. If you have involuntary associations of colors with numbers, such as when you think of the number 3, you automatically see the figure of 3 in green, then you might have synesthesia. I like to think of the colors as instinctual knowledge.

    I thought this thread would be a cool place for some other synesthetes (if any of you are out there) and myself to share what our alphabet, numbers, and other things are associated with.

    My alphabet: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

    My Numbers: 0 1 (light grey represents white) 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

    My days of the week (some synesthetes have colors associated with days of the week, I do): Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday (Saturday is actually a much, much darker version than Thursday, this is the only color that comes close to it though) Sunday

    Fun Fact: Somewhere between 2.2 to 4.4 percent of the population have some form of synesthesia.

    I had this more when I was younger. I still have some associations that persist: 1 is white, 2 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. No color association for me with the days of the week, but I label public toilet stalls days of the week (in order of Monday - Sunday, left to right). (I prefer the Thursday stall).

    That's hilarious about the stalls XD.

    I've realized I have more associations than I thought. Like if I think of a word in my head, if it is a concrete noun, I see the word in the same color as the actual object appears in front of me, e.g. water. If it is an abstract noun, I see the word's color in accordance with the first letter, e.g. belligerence.

    Do you have any color associations with the 12 months?

    I do have a few color associations for certain months, but they seem to be quite related to the holidays within the month or the month's birthstone. In fact, I contemplate that my "synesthesia" is simply a result of the learning tools I was exposed to as a child. Perhaps I had a set of magnetic numbers that were in the colors for which I now hold an association. I haven't explored it much. Just a thought.

    I think that's where my associations came from too.
