    I didn't discover that book until my own kids had to read it in school lol. Turns out, there were 2 more after it (or some such). I keep wanting to find them.
    Ikr? It fascinates me too! A lot! People's minds are so fascinating, even my own!~ I am a visual thinker myself! But also hands on sometimes, or "show me" rather than tell me kind of learner.

    2 more? You could probably find them pretty easily though

    It energizes me to see someone so interested in the same thing! I feel like most don't care as much about things as I do sometimes, that I need to hold myself back all the time... So it's refreshing

    Also, here's the other books!

    I have synesthesia...or I used to before I developed a horrible mind-altering illness, and then severe depression. It seems to have receded since then. I don't really "miss" it, but I have to say that it enhanced my life while it was there.

    It was the type of synesthesia where words and letters have colors and textures, and music is a colorful painting.

    THREE more books?! I will have to re-read the first and then the others. Thank you!
    I love how our thoughts are so different. It never even occurred to me, until fairly recently, that not everyone thinks in spoken word. Or how, not everyone, gets goosebumps from music

    @The Tsarevich I would have been horribly depressed if I had lost such a thing Especially seeing music as a painting. Losing that would have been much too painful.

    I have something similar. I have OE (Overexcitability), click on Overexcitability - Wikipedia

    Only 2% of us have OE. I prefer to call it 'a high response to stimulae, both internal and external'.

    My biggest problem is I am too much for people, so to communicate I have to rein myself in. I don't like doing this.

    At first I thought there was something wrong with me, so I attended therapy but found I was merely exuberant.

    I love loosening the reins and galloping exuberantly, but I find most are working in jobs they don't like, are unhappy in marriage, are in debt, or are anxious or depressed. They are not the slightest bit interested in my exuberance, but they love me to listen to their misery.

    I don't know what to do at this point, I am though attracted to the medieval text called, "The Cloud of Unknowing", by Anonymous.

    Who knows?

    My step-dad suspects that he may have synesthesia and that he and my youngest brother may also have SPS, though neither has been tested for either. Interestingly, both of them also have red-green colorblindness and amazing photographic memories. My brother's recall is borderline eidetic as he's constantly reminding me of silly things and very random memories from as early as 4 in vivid detail which I only have a vague recollection of, let alone picture-perfect visual memory of. My step-dad's memory is equally strong, but even he admits that my brother's is way beyond his ever was. My step-dad and my step-siblings also have highly sensitive palates and olfaction, my youngest sister the last of all. Just some examples, my step-dad is a supertaster, easily tastes separate spices in cooking, and cooks meticulously like a chemist; my brother finds most dairy and fermented foods overwhelming or revolting; both become easily overstimulated with loud noises; and both have admitted seeing color to sound. My aunts and uncle have openly discussed the possibility of their late father having a spectrum disorder, most likely Asperger's and SPD, and the genetic basis of some of those sensory traits in all of them. My step-grandfather was a talented student in the 30s and showed a savantism for math, chemistry and science and won national honors in university later becoming a mechanical engineer like most Europeans of his background and generation. I'd only known him as a cranky, over-serious old man, with a dry wit, and a penchant for silly humor and writing about history. Much of the details of his unusual abilities and habits only became apparent to me in adulthood, but by then he was already demented and bedridden from constant illness in his 90s. My brother and step-dad's sensory abilities are most likely congenital given the family history. Some of this became especially obvious from my perspective since I have a dull palate and weak sense of smell, have never experienced blended senses, and have poor memory recall overall comparatively. Growing up with my step-dad and later watching my brother grow to teenhood was amusing (because they inherited my step-grandfather's funny bone) and always fascinating. Not all things are equal apparently, even our most immediate sensory perceptions, as some people sense to greater depths.

    Loud noises especially sudden ones are painful for me, too. It travels through your body like an electricity current and stings, right? And yep, the excessive stimuli. Shopping is fine, but can't go to huge concerts with all that crazy activity let alone stereotypical parties. I would say that's HSP.

    I have synesthesia (or at least I think I do/many others have said so lol). I'm not a HSP I think, but I do have an undiagnosed sensory disorder of some sort.

    The synesthesia is sort of interesting because, despite fitting definition pretty well, I initially denied having it because a) I assumed the way that colors naturally aligned with sounds, concepts, and symbols was just some semi-uncommon human thing and b) I always wished I had synthesia because I thought it would be cool to view the world like that, so the fact that I "fit" definition meant I was obviously faking it or had special snowflake syndrome. As per typical 6 core (TM), it took affirmation from others that I wasn't just being a dumbass.
    Anyhow, I find that my synthesia works similarly to unconcious pattern recognition. Words with connected definitions will be in the same range of colors (ie. Sensing, kinesthetic, athletic are all orange/red words to me, physics and materials are both purple/grey ect). Also, when I interact with people, similar personality styles (not necessarily related to mbti or enneagram or anything) I will associate with similar colors if I haven't already attatched their existance. As I've gotten older and become more self aware, I've noticed these impressions more and they've stengthened (at least superfically).
    Following @Kanra13 's lead, the synthetic personality for fun (or at leas the best I can do with typology central not working with me, I copied what I could from my blog lol):

I process sensory information a bit acutely, mostly of the visual and auditorial variety that sometimes overwhelms me and I cannot think properly and get tired quickly if its new information/unfamiliar surroundings. It's a very difficult sensation to describe, thats somewhat similar to a stimulus causing pain in your mind's eye, or a sensation similar to a flinch in response to someone throwing something at you when you're not expecting it, but in a constant barrage. This acuteness also sometimes makes me experience synesthesia. Like a sudden noise makes my minds eye explode with color like a firework. Though it only happens when I am relaxed and not expecting it. I tend to get tunnel vision, or just be completely inside my thoughts and completely oblivious to my surroundings.

    My brain has adapted to this pretty well, but as a result I have insane selective hearing. Its not that I only hear what I want to hear, but more that my brain filters out anything I am not focusing on just to function normally. It started when I was pretty young as my parents thought I was deaf and got diagnosed with it. I often time am severely unaware of whats going on around me unless I want to. Though I have over time, learned to somewhat control what my brain filters out. Though it is very difficult to force myself to listen for more than one thing at a time. Even when listening to my mp3, the moment I start reading or thinking I no longer hear it.
    Even looking right at things and trying to notice details has been hard, thus my art struggles. Art has helped me improve in it, but I'm just spacey as fuck. Absent-minded. That's why I have to repeat tasks over and over and over, because I can't recall whether I did it right due to spacing out while doing it and trying to ensure I havent made mistakes. I double check, triple check myself a lot...or go out of my way to prevent mistakes with more careful methods, things most people dont need to do, but if I dont I will lose track. I have to organize my environment to allow me to function on autopilot: put things back in the same ways every time, because if I have to think/focus on it consciously then I will fuck it up eventually. When working on the cut table at a pizza place I would have to put all the sauces and butters and stuff in a set order every time; something that made logical sense to me. Example: Mild, medium, hot; reg butter, then garlic butter (due to having base butter flavor +1); etc., etc. all in a row. That way there's no thinking and my brain can space out. It pissed me off when someone used something and didnt put it back the same way because it throws me off...so I'd get annoyed and then put it back how I had it. That seems overly anal, but it was what I had to do to prevent them making remakes on orders because of my fuck ups. This was mistaken for incompetence, but I actually have a genius IQ on paper technically. I have to go way out of my way to do things in particular ways just to accommodate myself. I seem hella OCD sometimes in person since things have to be "just this certain way," but I'm not...I'm just coping with whatever sensory problem I have. I forget things when I leave home constantly, I go back like every time to check things (not exaggerating, it got to a point where I started allowing time for this in the mornings); the door, the coffee pot, the stove if I made breakfast. I notice that others notice more sensory details than me: the fact that the rain stopped, etc. I casually look around the room directly at things while failing to notice them: someone else says, "yeah, it's a mess," and I'm just like..."oh...I really didn't even notice. I wasn't even looking at that." I was actually looking directly at it, I just didn't realize it. I notice a 6 year old learns what hydrogen peroxide is, and thinks to smell it...then I realize I just don't even think to do those types of things...to take in more sensory information...sensory details don't ever overwhelm me, it's like some miracle for me to actually see what's in front of my face. I've accidentally walked in front of slow moving cars. I drive from point A to point B in a car, and I space out constantly, or it's some fog or dream in which I didn't intake the things around me very well other than what was vital for safety.

    What I lack in this I probably make up for with creativity / imagination.

    I suppose I have a mild form of it. I associate colors with things like days of the week, months, letters of the alphabet, numbers, etc.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
