    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?
    To answer your first question, I think the answer is yes. I'm pretty sure there's a rigidity to synesthesia, like the sound of g produces the image of green no matter what. Conversely, if you're an artistic person, it's likely your senses will blend and feed off of each other. I'm not a synesthete, but I experience a lot of sensory fusion/ crossover.

    I've taken the battery and tested as a synesthete (color-grapheme), but I'm not sure -- don't you have to actually see the colors? I only see them mentally.

    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

    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9


    (Some are hard to pinpoint, especially the purple and brownish ones. Q is both brown and grey-purple, for example. It's like looking at something duochrome with your peripheral vision.)

    Does anyone else have a hard time determining the colors of 0, 1, O, and I? They're just kind of shadow-y to me...0 and O seem generally seem white and I and 1 are whitish with a darker shadow/outline, but their shades differ depending on what they're next to or how they're written.

    If you only see them mentally, then you are an associative synesthete. There are two kinds, Associative and Projection, the latter of which is actually experiencing the synesthesia in the outside world.

    Yeah, 0s and 1s are weird. My 0 is grayish while my 1s are white/very light gray. They do seem kinda shadowy.

    I've have a weird thing with people's names as well where a person's name will be one color if I'm just thinking about the name, but if I'm thinking about the actual person, his or her name assumes the regular color and has shades of their personality on top of it.

    For Instance (not actual person's name)
    Regular Name: Bob
    Actual friend with name: Bob But way more mixing and swirling and flickering.

    For me the purple and brown colours are distinct, there's several shades of these colours, each one is associated with another grapheme, in my case it's the gray ones that are a bit harder to pinpoint.

    0 and O are just white, yes, I and 1 are more of a problem, because they are greyish (like Alea_iacta_est's).

    Hey that's interesting. What do you mean by shades of personality? I also have some "shades" of something associated with certain graphemes, and with full numbers and words etc. but I can't give it a proper name, however what you say sounds similar to that... so I'm curious

    Different personalities have different sights to them (associative sights, I don't project this). An energetic personality has orange streaks in it in addition to the base color of the person's name, a calm, laid-back personality has earth tones, etc.

    Also, negative numbers are all tinged black, gray, and red and get darker as they progress to lesser values.

    Ah, I see. By "sights" you don't mean just colours, do you?

    Interesting about the negative numbers; for me there's no difference between negative and positive numbers.

    Well they are colors, but they are animated colors, they are sparkling, swirling, and melding with the base color.

    Most emotional readings are more subtle though and can be colourless - or beige, neutral tones. At the same time, some of them, especially the colourless subtle ones seem to literally change the air around them. There is like...like a visible ripple in the energy around them that they're giving off. Kind of the way a pond ripples when you throw a stone in it, ya know?


    Fwiw, to me a 2 is mint green. Always has been.

    Interesting, aren't those colours distracting, especially the bright white light?

    hmm, and no, I don't know, I don't think I see the world that way.

    Does that 2 in mint green come in a shape or specific form every time?

    It has a specific font

    Honestly, it's...normal to me. For that matter, I tend to enjoy the more pleasurable emotions being amped up and the colours...well they just add to that. It's like living inside a stunning piece of art - it enhances the experience and in fact triggers a mirror response from me. The picture can only capture a moment, a snap-shot but...to me those colours are alive. They wax and wane like waves crush onto the sand, and depending on how the experience goes, they become brighter, intenser and more vivid or they ease, become more pastel like or retreat and blur into other colours, which creates an entirely new ambiance. The bright white light is like the equivalent of exquisite bliss as it is the place where the experience is most intense and well...pure perfection. It's rare that it lasts longer than a few minutes and yes, it does become distracting and even harsh and too much if it lasts too long. It rarely does though.

    The same happens to me when I form a bond with someone emotionally only, not during sex. Though that experience tends to have more bluish-purple overtones, instead of pink-to-fiery red ones. And if I connect using intuition - like an exchange of ideas. That tends to be more fast-paced and rapidly jabs and streaks of colours, usually in pastel beige-yellow and silvery shades. There intensity will be more indicated by the rapidness and blinking of bursts of colours, and less so by the richness of the colour.
