Is it common/possible for synesthetes with less types to get chain reactions? O: I've been meaning to ask that, but didn't know if it was a silly question. I know that if a color of a song is particularly bright, I'll taste it, but I thought it might just be me imagining things. (Sorry for slightly derailing the conversation about your girlfriend's synesthesia, by the way. That's really impressive. o_______o How does something like that happen, if you don't mind me asking?)
No problem. It’s very possible to have chain reactions. She just have more reactions than the rest. For example, when you close your eyes, your senses get a bit stronger. If you smell gas from a car, your ears prick up and you can hear a truck pass by .You can start to feel the ground shaking as it passes and “feel” where it is.
It happens to me sometimes. When I’m listening to a song REALLY loud, my sound-color/color-sound create a feedback and I blank out visually and I get this static sound in my mind. Also when I cut my finger I taste grape and the taste creates a green color to me. :)
