Summary of Article
Synesthesia is a neurologically-based condition in which a person experiences a crossed response to different stimuli such as sight and sound. Synesthetes can hear colors, feel sounds and taste shapes. It is estimated that 4 percent of the population can perceive the world with this blending of senses. Many synesthetes are empaths (although not all empaths are synesthetes).
