    Ever since i can remember, I've always associated numbers and days of the week with colors.

    Music not so much.

    Kinda silly since short-term memory accounts for a fair portion of this rather brief quiz, not synaesthesia. One question was even more amusing since I'm confident of which answer the test wanted and why, but I clicked the other one because it was closer to a scene that the question caused to play before my mind's eye (and I'm most certainly a visual thinker who easily becomes immersed in the spontaneous unfolding and intentional direction of mental imagery). I also deduced with high confidence what the "correct" answers to a multi-part portion were after receiving its second question. This is confirmed by the fact that I retook it and scored 100%. Since the test and I worked together I give it half the initial grade it awarded me.

    well funny that u mention that... I also thought that the repetition of the numbers/colors thing was strange, and wasn't sure what they were getting at, as i still associated the numbers with colors, just slightly different ones, and not all of them had a color both times.

    I also wondered about the music/color test and wondered whether they had a specific color in mind as the "correct" answer. When both of the music pieces played, I actually thought of a totally different color from any of the ones presented, so I thought that was a weird way to present that question.

    weird test.

    It said 73%, but I couldn't hear the sounds for the two that had sounds, and when I was trying to "click here to hear sound" I accidentally clicked on colors. I don't know if that made my score higher or lower.

    60%. I think thats way too high for me based on what I've heard synesthesia is like.

    It is for people synaesthetically responsive to numbers, though audio is really my mental eye candy. What the number portion is really testing is one's ability to remember a self-selected color series for about two minutes. It would be better if the second appearance of the numbers were sequenced differently than the first.

The 2nd sound made me envision a dark cathedral of sorts with funeral pyres burning in the night, but again I figured that was the "wrong" color association given the sound.
    When the sad-ass second sound played I deduced that the "correct" color for the more-dynamic first sound was red. That's because it's "hot", so it would commonly be associated with the busy-ness of the first noise, while the blah second one would be represented by a "cold" color. Same with the sharp-sounding "kiki" being predictably represented by the spiky star. However, "kiki" made me:
    • visualize tiki torches, pineapples, palm fronds, and a backyard bbq
    • associatively imagine 70s decor
    • visualize the daisy-shaped, rubber, anti-slip thingies my mom glued to the floor of the shower when I was a kid, said anti-slip stick-ons being shaped like the test's blob
    So I picked that even though el blobbo didn't seem like the expected choice. And when I took the test a second time and adjusted my answers to what I thought it regarded as "right", I scored 100%.

    Dis test, dis grace.

    that's the thing though, i felt like that test was testing one particular person's envisioned color association, in particular with the music questions.

    And with the numbers/colors, i could very well have remembered what i put the first time and reiterated that, some of my numbers just happened to change color. Does synesthesia require that the number always be the same color all the time?

    Interesting, mine were:

    1) red
    2) blue
    3) yellow
    5) purple
    7) green
    9) black

    That makes me think of another association thing, you can test it with answering this: (think quick, the first thing that comes to your mind)

    You caught me. I actually thought of a black drill. I suppose because I thought of Black & Decker. I just wanted an excuse to post a little known Beatles song.

    Either way, I guess that 20% result was accurate insofar as it relates to myself. Because I got the 20% chance that it was a different answer.
