Do you think words have colors?

Im actually color blind (that means i can't see colors accuretly). but i feel a color when i hear a word (sometimes i even dont know the name of this color)

Does every person have this?

  • No, not everyone. Only very few people. Some very famous painters like van Gogh had this.

    • I have no skill for painting :D

      Can i use this any other way

    • You don't need skill to cover a brush in paint and use it to touch a canvas. Art is free. If you perceive colours differently to other people you're bound to create something unique. Give it a whirl!

    • Lol color coat not cope.

Have an opinion?

  • It's called synesthesia. It's rare condition when your senses are mixed up. :)

  • I've heard of this but can't remember what it's called. Some people do but it's not common.

  • you sound like you have synesthesia. I have perfect pitch, thank God, and one way I describe it is that I "hear in color" even though I don't think the colors consistently match the notes. I just recognize them instantly.

    • Do you mean you feel different colors in different times for the same word?

    • ehh sort of - it's like - ok so my former roommate had synesthesia; she would physically see flashes of color when she read, could taste sounds, etc.
      I generally associate certain sounds with colors - the note A is usually red - but context can change them. It's not colors exactly. It's like - I just know what they are, I have an extra difficult-to-describe sense. often they are consistent but I don't think "oh that's a green it must be G" - it's like "oh that's a G, if I had to identify it I guess I could describe it as producing a sort of green in my mind"

  • Me too :))

    • Hey I want to play agame with you... I'm going to ask you what color you see when I say a word and I'll answer far below, but don't look at my answers before you answer ok?

  • red

    red's a word... so...

  • No not at all.

  • Yeah.

    When I think of the word "yellow," I think of the color yellow.
    When I think of the word "orange," I think of the color orange, and so on.
