Another example of how weird we are:

Look at the image to the left in this hebrew wikipedia article, and read the text.

BTW, surprisingly, I didn’t find this exact image at the English wikipedia as well, and too bad for it. I don’t have the time to put it in now though.

Update – added a short description of the experiment:

It’s an experiment that demonstrates Synesthesia. I hope this experiments work in English as well.

Look at this picture, and decide which shape to name “Booba” and which “Kiki”.

Once you’ve made your choice, scroll down.

95% to 98% of people choose Kiki for the orange angular shape and Booba for the purple rounded shape.

    I found your page through a Google search as I was researching some things for one of my books (Synesthesia is one of the themes)…now, I’m confused…i went to the page you linked, but obviously, not all of us read Hebrew…what was your point?

    Hi Jae,

    I updated the article, though I’m sure there is better material on this elsewhere.
