cali777: syneshesia-grapheme personality traits?

Hello,

I would love to hear from all fellow-syneshesia-grapheme friends out there who wouldn't mind describing your personality.  Do you consider your self an introvert or extrovert? Do loud people bug you?  For those of you who lived away at college for the first time, was it a real shock - cause too much sensory input all of the time (i.e. dorm living?).  The reason I am asking is that I am getting ready to go away to college for the first time and I'm a introvert with syneshesia-grapheme.  I consider myself a home-body, I get "over-loaded" pretty easily, but I do have friends!  I am looking forward to college.  Just thinking about the whole personality connection with my color/letter/number thing ...... thanks !!

I have quite a few different types of synesthesia, one of which is graphemes-color.

My personality.. I'm an extreme introvert, I guess. I dislike pretty much any and all face-to-face social interaction. Loud people bug me very much. (People in general bug me very much.) I'm still living at my parent's house (I know, I'm such a winner) so I can't answer the third question. Though, when I did get my first job, it was kind of a shock. Not really that profound, though. It was just sort of like "oh, wow, this is all new to me." Graphemes-color isn't "overwhelming" to me, though the combination of personality-color, personality-taste, and personality-texture that i possess is really overwhelming in crowded places or when I'm around people I'm not familiar with. Never really had much of a problem with graphemes-color, though.

I know this post is really old but I just thought I'd contribute. Good luck in college.
