Understanding Life with Synaesthesia
Put simply, Synaesthesia is a condition where your senses ‘leak’ into each other.
3 different types of Synaesthesia
- Colours and patterns (shapes, distinctive colours). Someone may have a certain colour for a certain letter. For example, A = Red and B = Green. Each person with synaesthesia won’t always have the same colour for each letter of the alphabet.
- Taste and smell – it is known that words can trigger different colours, tastes, shapes, textures, and temperatures.
- Touch and other body sensations – for example, different emotions and physical feelings can trigger different visions of colour.
