Find your type here! Each link will take you to a description.

This list includes types and subtypes of synesthesia and some common manifestations. There are also some phenomena that are similar but not considered to be synesthesia. 

Sometimes the terms are referenced in several different ways, to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. Remember that in the terms with a hyphen the “inducer” or stimulus comes first, followed by the “concurrent” or secondary synesthetic perception, so for example "Taste-color" is when tasting something makes you see a color, not the other way round.

If you prefer, you can search in the Site Map (with a list of all the pages on this site, grouped by key words), the List of Synesthesia Types by Prevalence or the Table of Synesthesia Types by Combinations of Senses, and there’s also a search box on the right panel.

(Note: this page uses US spelling for words like color, flavor, etc. In other parts of the web you'll find the British English spelling used (colour, flavour), although the US/international spelling of the word "synesthesia" is used throughout the site rather than the UK version "synaesthesia". This page is just for search engine visibility of the US terms.) 
Acupuncture-color/shape (tactile-visual)
Tasting colors (colors trigger taste sensations)
