Anonymous asked: Hi, I read that you see colours with words. I do as well except I don't project, I see it in my head so the common tests don't work on me as well because I don't physically see the colour on the page. I have a couple of questions. 1: do you project colours? 2: how do you handle reading print that's written in ink other than black? I've found that with the red white board markers and such that my teachers write in my reaction time is much slower. Thanks, Chelsea
Hi Chelsea, thanks for the ask!
I do project colors! I know lots of people associate mentally, but I actually do see a projection of my colors. When it comes to music, for example, I usually see things above and slightly forward of my eyeline. With words, it just overlays whatever is on the page. That means that I can see what color of ink was used, but it’s generally my secondary response. Like, when they do that test where they put the word BLUE in orange ink on a page or something; that totally messes with my head! :)
