Colorful Words!

I remember one of my friends who had ability to see the words with different colors. Later I found out that there is a gene related to this characteristics. Does anybody have any idea, about this gene, or the rate of people who have this characteristics?

The condition is called synesthesia, wherein a genetic difference in an individual causes many more inter-connections in the brain than most people have. I don't know the percentage of people who have this ability, but I know that it is fairly rare. A few famous artists and authors have had this trait, such as Vladimir Nabakov.
