Synesthetes don't usually have identical associations. If they find another
who shares the same senses, they might feel a special bond. It would be a secret only they'd understand... Because it's a secret chamber of the heart.
Your homepage picture. It's Mickey, Donald and Goofy, right? For me too, they were scary. People said they were cute, but not to me. They looked different to me. No one saw things the way I did. Nor hear the same way. That's why... I thought I was alone in this world. But I was wrong. At last I met someone.
"1" is like red brick.
"2" is yellow.
"3" is navy blue.
"4" is... gray.
"5" is... rectangle.
Rectangle. The car wipers are... the letter "T."
Silver cups are... night.
Smell of oil heaters... feels rough.
Small raindrops are... "Hello" in English.
Big raindrops are... gerberas.
Can you see them?

I hear she's from an orphanage. But the more people die, the richer she gets. What a tragic blessing...
Shinsuke Hayama. He has synesthesia, or concomitant sensation. -Synesthesia?
Linked sensations bring out... other senses, other than the one being stimulated. Look here... What do you see?
-Printed letters...
A synesthete might see letters in different colors. On this paper, this entire page could be a rainbow to him. Words and digits perceived as colors. Tastes and smells as touch. In one case even, a blind man... could see when he listened to music.
-I see...
What's 2+4?
No, yellow. They can see 2 as red, 3 as blue. Perhaps, Ms. Karaki,
your name tastes like tomato sauce!

Ran across this unusual term in books and films. e.g. Amos Decker in the book series by David Baldacci possessed Synesthesia and Hyperthymesia.This is a rare high-concept movie that dwelt into the subject in a cyber action crime thriller. Not for everyone but super for those who are interested in Synesthesia, from wiki:

There are two overall forms of synesthesia: projective synesthesia and associative synesthesia. People who project will see actual colors, forms, or shapes when stimulated, as is commonly accepted as synesthesia; associators will feel a very strong and involuntary connection between the stimulus and the sense that it triggers. For example, in the common form chromesthesia (sound to color) a projector may hear a trumpet and see an orange triangle in space while an associator might hear a trumpet and think very strongly that it sounds "orange".
