an opti-mystic friend of Jesus in a post-conventional world
…sounds like the coolest disorder ever.
we talked a little about this in my physiological psych class. doesn’t really sound like a disorder..sounds pretty awesome..colors!
Your comment is blue (it translates to cool in Synesthesiatic terms)
sorry, my way of being funny (or pinkish green in Synesthesiatic terms)
The wonder of the ways the world can be seen…to learn more, go to the Synesthesia Resource Center:
I wonder if you can catch it? Can it be learned? I hope so! I want it in the worst possible way…I’m extremely envious of Thom Yorke from Radiohead (music=color), now I know why his songs are better than mine! Drat his beautiful disorder…
I have a friend whose daughter has it, and it presents some unique challenges.
Also, composer Rimsky-Korsakov had it — interesting to listen to his music with that in mind.
well.. maybe in Thom Yorke’s case music = some shade of grey. 🙂
p.s. Brittian: if you really, really want this LSD will definitely do the trick. 🙂
I have this. It’s awesome 🙂
Every number and letter of the alphabet has its own color. Consequently, every word has its own color as well, depending on the letters in it (usually the first letter). This makes programming my speed dial easy, because “Mom” is the same color as “4”, “Dad” is the same color as “6”, etc. It’s like my own little built-in mnemonic system 🙂
It’s not a disorder-which I find very hard to explain to people when I’m telling them exactly what it is (I have it). It’s not really that cool, either. Believe me. I didn’t even realize I had it until I turned 12, when my best friend and I got into a huge fight about what color the letter “O” was.
I don’t want to give it up, but it’s not that neat when you’re so used to it. Actually, it is a great time consumer when you’re bored. I just turn on some classical music, lay on my bed, and stare at the ceiling, watching all of the colors and shapes go by. That part is the only really cool part.
It can be angering though. For instance-3 is a total jerk. I hate anything in 3’s, and it makes me really pissy when I see that number.
