True Life: I Literally See Colors When I Hear Sounds
Chromesthesia is a type of synesthesia where you associate a specific color to the sounds that you hear. While it is rare, there are people who do have the ability to do this. These individuals open up about their personal experiences with synesthesia. From embracing their gift to struggling with the effects, here's what they had to say about their chromesthesia.

When you have chromesthesia, you see the world in a different light.

I have many different kinds of synesthesia, chromesthesia among them. It's a beautiful world.

More power to them.

My chromesthesia comes in handy for tuning and writing songs. And rifs on guitar. I feel like I have an unfair advantage when it comes to music.

Beauty if everywhere.

Chromesthesia, personality-color, flavor and smell-color. Almost everything is a color if I "look" at it closely enough

Not everybody possesses this gift.

Music DOES have a color.

It's called Synesthesia or Chromesthesia. You just need a different kinda brain to see it. 😜

Not everything is crystal clear.

I suffer from chromesthesia. Sometimes I see visual representation of sounds and music. Most of the time is colours and sometimes is weird fussy stuff going across my vision.

It's not harmful.

I went to my doctor last week because I was scared that something wasn't normal. Today I was diagnosed with chromesthesia, which means that I see colors in every sound.
