    I had thought for a bit about a recent thing that happened to me and decided to post it here. I mean, it's happened before obviously, but my recent education on Synesthesia is influencing me to recognize it in my daily life more and more. Upon asking casually about it in Vent, Edahn's guesstimation made me think to post it here.

    I went into the bathrooms of the George R. Brown Convention Center.. and found I had an impossible time with the stalls themselves due to the texture on the walls. On top of a bright red color, they had tiny textures of bumps on the surface of them. I saw a constant moving of lines racing through the cracks between the bumps.. like shadow and light striking constantly in hatchmark formats.. It's really quite hard to describe.

    As a side effect, this caused me to have absolutely no depth perception when it came to these walls.. I found myself having to feel along them to grab things without slamming my hand into them. I might as well have been blind.

    I've seen other textured areas move for me as well, and it's always been an annoyance for me.

    Oooh. I heard you mention this before, but couldn't really understand it until now. I still can't imagine that sort of perception though, it's so radically different. What do you think was the main trigger for the altered perception in that episode? Was it the texture of the wall, the color, or the combination? Have there been other times when something has set off an altered depth perception?

    I can't be sure if the color hindered, but it certainly didn't help. Yes, I commonly have trouble with textured things moving on me.. but I can't recall many times where I've had such difficulty doing such a simple task due to the way I see it.

    I've always enjoyed associating certain symbols (letters, numbers, etc.) with certain personality types, and I do it rather frequently, but would that actually be considered synesthesia? I had always assumed it was simply due to my potent imagination.

    Default Synęsthesia

    I've always found it intriguing. My science teacher has it, and I think it adds another level to how we see the world. I tend to use certain vocabulary despite the fact that I understand a wide range, and it limits my spoken word, yet it's natural.

    I just read the wiki article. I have mirror touch synaesthesia.(check out the article links) OMG! I just thought it was a quirk of mine.

    Is it possible you have astigmatism?

    i have a few types of synesthesia, according to a few people & a couple of assessments i have taken.. all of them are color-related in nature - i am an artist, so this never struck me as odd; it was just this past year that i became aware of what synesthesia was..before then i thought it was just an experience everyone had and nobody talked about

    (bump) any other synesthetes?

    I have it very strongly. People think I'm an idiot sometimes if I don't stop myself from saying: that's delicious, it tastes just like purple!
