Synesthesia is often found in highly sensitive people who are unusually intuitive or empathic. The technical definition is that of a neurological condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in another sensory or cognitive pathway.

It is often described as a blending of the senses, where certain sounds, colors, tastes, etc. are automatically associated with one another. For example, a person with synesthesia might associate certain letters or numbers with specific colors, or they might experience tastes when they hear certain sounds. It is a relatively rare condition, and the exact causes are not yet understood, but it is believed to have a genetic component.
