Am I A Synesthete? Test

Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which two or more of your senses intertwine (sight and sound, touch and smell, etc.). Does that sound crazy to you, or do you think you might have it? P.S.: This is NOT classified as a disease - it's actually quite fun to have!

I need help. I will respond to anything but pls help! Some words are like garbage, and some are pretty. Also, to me the sound of a cat purring is like the word wood chips. And some words are even or odd like yes is even and no is odd. The word even seems kinda warm and homey and the word odd seems like cold hard metal.I don't think of things like A is pink, monday is yellow. I can't taste words people are saying. AM I CRAZY????????????/

Uhm i took this test and this seems really fun to have. I couldnt relate to anything except for seeing a calendar in a circle. I THOUGHT I WAS CRAZYYY. Summer is left, fall is up, winter is right, spring is down. Whenever i think of a specific day i automatically pinpoint where it is on the “circle” subcountiously

Those definilty sound like synesthesia!
When graphemes (or written things like numbers, letters, days, months, names, etc) have a colour, it's called "grapheme colour synesthesia". I don't know much about the personality one, since i don't have it, but according to Wikipedia, "Ordinal-linguistic personification (OLP, or personification for short) is a form of synesthesia in which ordered sequences, such as ordinal numbers, days, months and letters are associated with personalities and/or genders (Simner & Hubbard 2006)".

I can’t figure out if I have synesthesia. Numbers, months etc all have colors, and some numbers have personalities and genders. However, days of the week are strongest for me.

Monday - warm yellow, with brown tones. Monday is warm and kind, but also plain and simple.
Tuesday - chartreuse. Fun and spontaneous.
Wednesday - jewel-toned green. Deep and intelligent.
Thursday - olive green (so many greens, I know!) It seems straightforward.
Friday - purple. Fun and vibrant. Laughter.
Saturday - inky black. Mysterious.
Sunday - gold. Joyful and loving.
Does this sound like synesthesia?

Im a tickertaper so I see words that I think, hear, and say. Different people have different colors attached to the words I see when they speak, my best friend has a bright and vivid yellow, my mom has a dark and gloomy purple, and etc. :]

God how on earth is Monday lilac? It don't deserve to be that pretty. Monday is a deep maroon with a slight orange tinge and dotted with white. Some gold in there too...

in my head I have a mental calendar and in my head letters,words,and days or months have colours. Do I have synesthesia?
Plus Monday is totally reddish orange!!

I don't know...I see calendars in a wheel, days of the week in a wheel, and numbers in a squigly line. I can't interract with it, but it's there in my mind. I didn't, like, say "Oh I'm going to picture my calendar as a wheel" It just happens and every time I'm like 'Why do i do this?" it still does it.
I'M CONFUSED.

These question seem too specific to apply to everyone with Synesthesia. I'm not sure if I have it, but also MONDAY. IS. ORANGE. At least to me.

Those who think we're lucky, consider this:

Every single second you're feeling something, hearing sounds, tasting things, right? Well, we Synesthetes have our senses linked, so when we're listening to students talk in class, we might also be tasting them talk, and feeling it. That, mixed with everything else happening around us, can lead to sensory overload. There's just too much to process for us. That can then lead to breakdowns, blackouts, mental health deterioration. It has it's pros, but don't forget the cons.

For 60% you are: So are you a synesthete? Congrats! You've got multiple types of synesthesia! You have a very unique way of perceiving the world, and have something most people could only dream of, or maybe not even imagine! You are probably artistic and creative, and perhaps a good speller. Many famous artists/musicians have this! Welcome to the club!

Accurate. But Monday wasn't any of the colours listed, Monday's red.

For 60% you are: So are you a synesthete? You either have only one type of synesthesia, very weak synesthesia, or you are not a synesthete at all. You are somewhat interested in it, though. You are probably imaginative and can sort of imagine our situation.
I agree with this and I definitely want synthesia soo yeah! Great quiz! :D
