A: red
B: blue
C: yellow
D: green
E: terra-cotta
F: bright green
1: yellow
2: blue
3: red-orange
4: purple
5: orange
Monday: magenta
Tuesday: Blue
Wednesday: egg-yolk yellow
January: Gold
February: red
March: green
April: lavender
June: yellow
Sagar: Red with a hint of green (not impossible, there have been studies where people can see greenish-red)
Ruza: Dark purple
cloudwriter: light blue

SEE! It's common.



i have something like that, not as dramatic though. it's strange, if i think about it, the colors dissapear, so the test i tried online didn't work as well. here's what i see....


A: Lime green
B: blue
C: green-yellow
D: brown
E: dark blue
F: bright orange
1: green
2: orange
3: teal-dark-blue
4: brown-purple
5: orange
Monday: brown-magenta ish
Tuesday: yellow-orange
Wednesday: dark, dark blue
January: gray-white (that one has always been very strong in my head)
February: pink
March: green and lavender
April: green
June: blue
Sagar: Brown and orange
Ruza: Dark purple
cloudwriter: light blue with white

sorry if this is wasting space....

No it's fine.
I shuddered when I read that! To me, they are the wrong colors. That's the thing with synesthesia, you can't accept other people's colors. They're just wrong to you. It's a really weird feeling!

I want it, like how Mia or Emma have it. I think I have it slightly for names and some months. Especially online names.

Ruza:dark maroon
AA: Red. Very Red.
EmmaR: hard color to describe, brown like trees, but a certain time of year.
Marissa (my camp friend) Yellow
Skye( another camp friend) blue-green
Taryn (another camp friend) Orange.


March: Green-brown
April: pinkish

So I guess I do have it slightly. I don't have it strong, or for letters or numbers, but it's definitely there.

It's pretty cool, but it's also kind of annoying.
