An article appeared in The New Yorker a few days claiming Marilyn had synesthesia. They've used a vague quote from Jim Dougherty to make their point or really to grab their headline. What do you think? https://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-d...d-you-might-too

Quote: Marilyn Monroe had a condition called synesthesia, a kind of sensory or cognitive fusion in which things seen, heard, smelled, felt, or tasted stimulate a totally unrelated sense—so that music can be heard or food tasted in colors, for instance. Monroe’s first husband, Jim Dougherty, told Norman Mailer about “evenings when all Norma Jean served were peas and carrots. She liked the colors. She has that displacement of the senses which others take drugs to find. So she is like a lover of rock who sees vibrations when he hears sounds,” Mailer recounted, in his 1973 biography of Monroe.
