Actually, what you're describing is time-space synesthesia (or some variant of the term). Ordinal linguistic personification is where you associate sequences with characteristics like personality traits or gender. It's also considered to be a form of synesthesia, and it's common for different forms to co-occur.

I was involved in some research on it back when I was a student. A lot more people *say* they experience various forms of synesthesia than you can verify through objective tests. It's quite intuitive that ordered sequences might have a spatial association (it might actually be something fundamental about how order is represented in the brain), so when you suggest the idea that some people 'see' or experience it, it strikes a chord in some people who don't actually have synesthesia.

I have/have had experiences similar to both of those things.

You're right. Whoever approved this question changed synesthesia for synthesis.

Anyway, I always felt weird about the way I see my week. It goes from right to left. Monday to Wednesday being lower, than Thursday is a slope upward that continues with Friday and plateau with Sat and Sun. It drops again with Monday.

I do have ways I group these type of things and get a visual in my mind, but ai always assumed it was imprinted from years of looking at calendars, alphabets, etc. in school classrooms.

I struggle to imagine a scenario where they were essentially random.
