in thread When I count, I think of numbers as...

me runs of to wiki to read up on synethesia...

In electronics there is the color code for indicating the value of resistors and the like (When I was younger I spent a fair amount of time putting together Heathkit's and such).

  0 = black
  1 = brown
  2 = red
  3 = orange
  4 = yellow
  5 = green
  6 = blue
  7 = purple
  8 = grey
  9 = white

While I don't think of numbers as colors, sometimes I (still) think of colors as numbers...

    Sorry... couldn't resist. Used that jingle from the time I was 8 to remember the color code for resistors. I am a long time electronics buff.

    The jingle became more "R" rated when I went to BEE school in the US Navy.. :-)

      In India it is, BB ROY of Great Britan has a Very Good Wife.
      It was "... but Violet goes willingly" where I learned it.
