Who has or knows someone with synesthesia? If you don't know what that is, it's a mixing of different stimuli like tasting or hearing colors... numbers or letters being a certain color, or smell, or sound, or having personalities or animal traits... or any combination of cross-sensory experiences.
My only personal experience with this is once when I was a kid, I hurt myself and it seemed like blood tasted "green". My sister laughed at me and said I was stupid, so I may have ignored or repressed other occurrences. I don't get the same sensation now or with any other taste. I have a friend that says numbers have personalities (4 is mean, 8 is caring, etc.).
Since it came up on the recent episode of Big Bang Theory, I was wondering who else had experience with this.
