Synesthesia Alphabet

Finally got around to making a chart of my synesthesia colors. I had done one a while ago when I first learned that I had the condition, but this one is more accurate.


My colors are generally pretty warm, I guess, and I see a lot of reds and other earthy tones. X, K, Y, and A have the strongest colors for me, which override my perception of the letters nearby. That said, the color for U (though apparently much duller than the aforementioned) is also very strong.


S is a bit of a strange one, because if it is by itself, at the end of a word, or in the middle of a word, it is actually more similar in color to A (sort of a rusty red without so much orange). In these cases when it's red, it is a strong, confident, and supporting.


But when it is at the start of a word, it looks pale blue as pictured. This has always bothered me, because my name, Sarah, starts with an S so the whole name is a pale blue color. I perceive the color as weak, pathetic, and easy to give in to demands. It's completely the opposite of my personality. So in other words, I hate my name because it starts with an S.
