➳Welcome fellow synesthetes! (did I spell that right...xD) This studio is for all synesthetes alike! You can add projects only dealing with synesthesia. Thank you! :)
➳What is synesthesia?
the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.

➳Despite the existence of over 20 types of synesthesia, only a few has been discovered, studied and documented. The following are some of the most common known forms of synesthesia.
➳ Chromesthesia is a neurological condition affecting about 1% of the world population. Individuals with this condition involuntarily associate the sounds they hear with certain colors. The type of color evoked by a particular sound varies from one person to the other.
People with grapheme synesthesia involuntarily associate specific colors with letters or numerical digits. The associations are not normally related with sophisticated imaginations but with a color of a letter or some simple geometric patterns.
Hearing-touch synesthesia is a very rare condition. Individuals that experience this condition are susceptible to the sense of sound and they develop tactile feelings whenever they hear sounds. A good example to illustrate this phenomenon is the claim by some people who feel physical discomfort with the background noise of a plane. Others are more sensitive to sounds of very high frequencies that cannot not be perceived by others.
Lexical-gustatory synesthesia is the taste of words. To them, words have characteristic tastes ranging from delicious to disgusting tastes.
➳Mirror touch synesthesia
Mirror touch synesthesia can be seen as a form of empathy. People with this type of synesthesia feel exactly what others feel such as pain and pleasure. The difference between this condition and empathy is that mirrored feelings go beyond the emotions and they are physically experienced by the synesthetes.
➳Number form synesthesia
People with number form synesthesia usually have a mental map of numbers appearing involuntarily with every thought of a numerical figure. Their high memory and ability enables them to accurately quote events in the past and project them to the future.
➳Ordinal linguistic personification
Ordinal linguistic personification also called OLP or just Personification is a condition in which people involuntarily and uniquely associate ordered sequences like the months of the year, days of the week, numbers or even letters with behaviours and character traits of personalities.
The time-space synesthetes are people who feel like time has a physical characteristic. They feel a literal connection with time. In their memory, they interact with time. In their world, they can physically point at specific days and time in space.
People with touch-emotions synesthesia experiment extraordinary physical emotions when they touch some surfaces or textures. Though it was a rare occurrence in the past, it has been discovered that more people have this conditional than it was originally believed.
