So, I thought this would be an interesting topic… I have synesthesia, which is a condition where the senses are ‘mixed’ in a sense. Some people with synesthesia see a color when they taste a certain food or hear a sound. I see a color and a texture when I hear a name or in accordance with someones personality. A lot of people have synesthesia, like [name]John[/name] [name]Mayer[/name]. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia can tell you more about this.
So I thought it would be fun if people want to know what color their names, their kids names, or names they had picked out are!
For example my name is [name]Kaitlin[/name]. When I hear my name/think of my personality, I see a mix of the colors [name]LAVENDER[/name] and [name]GREY[/name], with a texture that is smooth and opalescent like a pearl. This tells me that I’m a person who is sensitive, quiet, but still sturdy and resilient.
My SO’s name is [name]Chris[/name]. When I hear his name and see him, I see a mix of the colors [name]BURGUNDY[/name] and [name]VIOLET[/name], with [name]BLACK[/name] speckles. The texture of it is shiny and slick, like the skin of a plum. That means that he is passionate, stubborn, has a temper, and a good sense of humor.
The name [name]Lucy[/name], for example, makes me think of a mix of the colors flamingo [name]PINK[/name] and neon [name]GREEN[/name], like tye-dye, and it has a light, soft, cottony texture. To me this means someone named [name]Lucy[/name] would be funny and friendly, who was bubbly but with a more serious nature. Perhaps she would be someone who is slow to warm up to new people but is a loudmouth once you get to know her!
So tell me what names you want to know about! :o)
