I proudly tell the world: I have Synesthesia! Am I dying? No? Am I sick? I feel fine. What's going on? I have a common neurological phenomenon. I specifically have ordinal linguistic personification. Basically I assign gender to colors, numbers, letters, days of the week, and months. The most interesting part about synesthesia is that it's not the same in those affected. Some people see Monday as red, while others feel Monday to be blue.
For me specifically:
0- genderless really
If an number ends with a zero, the gender is determined by the first digit (2450 is a girl). For decimals it is determined by the first digit as well. For multi-digit whole numbers not ending in 0, the last number determines the gender.
When I fill out Scantron, I ALWAYS see a and b as a couple and c and d as a couple. E is the awkward fifth wheel. I used to be consumed by the letters and coming up with back stories (like a is cheating on b with c so now d is mad and b is sad...) and it was distracting, so now I only fill out scantron at the end so I can focus.
Something funny I just noticed, the genders correlate to their first letter, and as I'm reading this sentence, the same is true for words I suppose, but I'm sure there are exceptions.
The same is true of months, with the exception of August, which I see as a boy.
White and Orange are more exceptions to my "first letter" theory
Again, not everyone assigns the same genders to the same objects.
I wonder if you guys have Synesthesia? If so what do you agree and disagree with?
