comment How to create a course that will give you synesthesia?
You could be right. The granularity of sensory and conceptual synesthesia is beyond my depth, so I couldn't say for certain.

@Krysta I believe Varieties of Anomalous Experience called it weak synaesthesia. My education in the matter is self-taught so I'm not sure how well adopted the terminology is. Although I think conceptual synesthesia still falls under strong synesthesia in these definitions. A grapheme-color synesthese still cannot filter out the synesthetic effect, though the processing certainly does happen at a different stage than say sound-color, which is lower level. This definition of weak synesthesia is more about artistic/metaphorical effects and thus calling it synesthesia might be misleading.

@Krysta Strong synesthesia is an automatic 'inappropriate' modal response, where weak is either associative or metaphorical but not automatic. A modal response is any sense responding to a input, smelling scents, hearing sounds, whatever. In this case inappropriate means it is responding improperly to an input or the wrong sense is responding to the input. Automatic means there is not way for the experience to block it or ignore it, it is just as much part of their sensory input as our normal array is.
