I’ve always seen words as colours. I thought every one did and I started to google it’s meaning but there is only a Wikipedia definition (Grapheme–color synesthesia) and not much else. I am sure this is not so rare. I wouldn’t say I have a ‘condition’ haha! But I do think it’s weird it seems so rare.
I don’t necessarily see individual letters as colours, but rather whole words. But not every word has a colour all of the time and I don’t think too hard about it because if I do then I can’t associate a colour with it.
So to me Wednesday is a brown/purple colour. Tuesday is yellow. Thursday is green. House is blue/grey. Lunch is orange/brown.
The number 9 is yellowish. The number 8 is red. The number 5 is purple.
The name Melinda is brown. Andrew is red/brown.
A lot of words have a browny tinge to them. So they are never fully vibrant.
This is apart from the obvious though. So of course ‘grass’ is green and ‘sky’ is blue.
This is probably sounding strange, but it’s had me wondering for a while what it means and if other people think this too. I assumed it would have some creative personality type meaning, but Wikipedia doesn’t mention any reasoning for it. However is does say “it has been found that grapheme-color synesthetes have more grey matter in their brain.” Hmmm??
Do you do this too?
