Have you ever tasted shapes, saw sounds, or felt flavors? If so, you may be experiencing synesthesia, a neurological trait where “a triggering stimulus evokes the automatic, involuntary, affect-laden, and conscious perception of a sensory or conceptual property that differs from that of the trigger” (Cytowic, 2002).
