Grapheme-color or colored grapheme synesthesia is a form of synesthesia in which an individual’s perception of numerals and letters is associated with the experience of colours.
Can you learn synesthesia?
This study has documented a case of synesthesia in which synesthetic associations could be traced back to colored refrigerator magnets. Reading in colour thought to be a plausible way of learning synesthesia. According to this study, reading one book (consisting of more than 49000 words) was enough to induce some of the effects that act as behavioural markers for it.
