    I don't seem to have synesthesia with emotions--the word has it, so the word sadness is kind of a sulfur color, but I'd still associate the concept with being "blue" I suppose. What a hoot!
    I was actually talking about the words for emotion there, I have a slight projection of Emotion - Color, here's the difference. (Yeah it's fucking weird, don't have the same word-emotion color association)
    Happiness - Word: Red, Emotion: Slight yellow tint and sparkle to everything
    Sadness - Word: Yellow, Emotion: Same as depression, gray overtones and hues become slightly more prominent
    Vengefulness - Word: Black/Dark grey, Emotion: Light Blue overtones (I always associate it to like ice colored)
    Shame - Word: Yellow, Emotion: Light red flickers in my peripherals with hints of green
    Anger - Word: Green, Emotion: Blood red tints with black around the peripherals

    Ah, OK.

    I can see the principle in action of the first letter influencing the rest of the word in an abstract noun. Mine's the same. I may eventually put some of it up here, but I'm ungodly hungry right now, so I'm off for the day.

The only other times I've only seen really, really faint streaks of colors with certain notes, I have to really concentrate to see it though.
    So is this your "Partial Sound -> Sight" stuff?

    Waow... sounds like a hallucination almost

    My synesthesia isn't out there this tangibly and literally. I have: Grapheme (letters and number digits) -> Colour, Grapheme (letters and number digits) -> Sound & Emotion & a visual something... I'm not sure how to explain this last one though :S

    It's involuntary and consistent, yea.

    Interesting, I break down them into parts instead. (Words into letters, numbers into digits and they have the same colours as single digits or letters)

    I think the first letter might be a bit more noticeable (stronger colour) than the rest. It may be the reason why I only remember the first letter of words. I'm otherwise really bad at recalling words or text word by word.

    Oh and I recall something else now. I used to have a period where I made up some "magic sentences"*, they were just sentences with everyday words otherwise**, and somehow I involuntarily associated colours with the sentences. The entire sentence would be one specific colour. And yeah it was consistent too but it was a long time ago (I was like 13-16-ish so over 10 years ago) and I stopped using the sentences and I don't remember them anymore.

    *: sorry long story as to what that means
    **: meaning was special though, used them as a kind of control over my own mind, as I said long story!!

    As far as I know, I don't have mental deficits. Quite the opposite, my brain is well put together, thank-you Even if it has some special wiring

    Perhaps one thing though, I don't have much focus on theory of mind stuff. I'm able to do basic ToM instinctively no problem but the more complex shit I just don't pay attention to.

    Ohh well and another thing, something is off with my sensory processing of movement but it doesn't often cause a problem, it's a small side thing. (It's like, processing of motion and other visual information together under certain circumstances will get messed up; my brain will start to go to "sleep"; I have to find a reference point to resolve it but that is okay then. This happens maybe once in every few years lol, the circumstances are pretty special ones)


    Which reminds me, has every person with Synesthesia been left handed at one point or another?
    When I was younger (before like 3rd grade), I was predominantly lefty, but then I just changed for some reason.
    No but I can use my left hand as much as my right hand if I want to / if willing to practice

It's almost mesmerizing.
    Can you say more about what you mean by the bolded? I didn't understand that at all. Thanks.

    I don't have any mental deficits either, my ToM is actually advanced, I can see everything behind the scenes (but its more unconscious, I don't actively look for body postures and facial expressions, it just happens).

    The static is really hard to explain, I have to reach a state of deep concentration and thinking, hyper-introspective almost. I begin to see static (like TV static but more colorful) flickering everywhere behind my sight. It's like a layer underneath what I'm looking at

    Better Explanation: If you've ever played "Slender" it's kinda like that static but less in your face and much more colorful. I have no idea what the fuck it is.

    You have associative synesthesia. I have associative grapheme-color synesthesia, but on top of that I have partial projection Sound -> Sight and Emotion -> Color.

    In a spoken culture every sense can feed into every other sense.

    So the auditory sense, the olfactory sense, the haptic sense, the visual sense, the proprioceptive sense, all feed into one another.

    But in a literate culture this is too confusing. So a literate culture privileges one sense: the sense of sight.

    Does synesthesia have to be consistent? Or is there such a thing as partial synesthesia then? What I mean is that apparently you have to have special circumstances for it to occur (for the projection one).

    The static flickering, I think I have seen that but it was not to do with synesthesia. It was to do with hard concentration. Apparently, for you too, it's related to concentration.

    When you do that, you do get into a state where some things will be altered. So it's no real wonder this can happen.

    What does sound interesting is, you say it's closely related to sounds as well, how did you determine that?

    I've posted this in another thread, but I've been wondering if Synesthesia is linked to people that can read personalities/body language well and they get this "Aura" of a person in a form of colour.

    From what I've heard, that is the case. I would be considered above average in reading people's motives, wants, and desires easily, but I don't think it has to do with Synesthesia, it'd be more like intuition.

    I say partial synesthesia because it doesn't happen very often, and when it does, it's very faint (usually).

    I just guessed it was related to sound, it just seemed like it.
